I don't know of any specifically targetted to Python 3, except the  
official one at

For the most part, any Python tutorial should be fine. Perhaps the only  
visible change (at the tutorial level) is that "print" became a function:

# 2.x syntax:
print "Hello", "world!"

# 3.x syntax:
print("Hello", "world!")

That said, Python 3.0 is so recent that isn't widely used yet, and many  
third party libraries aren't available for 3.0 at this moment. This  
certainly will change in the future, but in the meantime, perhaps you  
should stick to Python 2.6 for a while.
