Start with the on-line textbook at:


... and use:

 apt-get install drscheme

... to get the software used for the exercises in the book.

Though Scheme is not used much for "practical" programming projects, the
book is really not about Scheme per se, but is about designing programs.
The things you'll learn are applicable in any programming language.
Learning to program first from this book using Scheme will make learning
other programming languages much easier later on.
