The "arduino cookbook" and "30 Arduino Projects for the Evil Genius" And the arduino inventors kit is a really great
starting point

there are some simulators out there for iphone, saw them in the appstore but i can recommend the real thing
(just be careful to read all instructions so you don't blow anything bur if you read everything it's not likely with
the basic stuff.  )

Also a good reader is - http://www.earthshineelectronics.com/files/ASKManualRev5.pdf -

afaik there is no real simulator for the Arduino, would not make too much sense either as the simulator has no sensors or actuators connected to it (OK you can simulate them too) Why do you want to simulate? THe real thing is easy enough to use.

Advice: got one or two evenings through the tutorial and reference section and you will find a lot of easy to understand sample sketches. As professional developer you should pick the ideas of these samples up quite fast.

Just google "arduino simulator" that's what I did. I have seen something over on the freaks recently too.

The obvious reason for a simulator would be checking for shorts.  There are lots of ways to short out the board and kill a data pin.
