A good primer on MARC bib records, but I would still suggest using any of the interactive training/quiz things on the OCLC website in addition to this.

When reading this I found myself caught by how dated it is in some aspects (you can put whole pieces of information on FLOPPY DISKS!) and how much MARC may be lacking for what our patrons need out of the catalog. While it organizes what information it contains in a marvelous way, perhaps it's the type of data we're using and not it's quality that'

Understanding MARC Bibliographic provides a brief (very brief) overview of MARC records. It is, at best, a very general introduction and only helped me for my first couple of days in my Masters level cataloging course. The author does not discuss all of the different fields, leaving out important and notable fields, which made the review useless after a certain point.
