You can start here: <https://grass.osgeo.org/documentation/first-time-users/>.

In my opinion, however, you could/should start right away using QGIS
And through it you can make use of GRASS' super(-analytical)-powers.

There are a few concepts to learn before playing freely with GRASS.  It
might be easier to learn them through QGIS.

Kind regards, Nikos
