I'm in much the same position.

I've found that the online reference material (monodoc (which has an
unfortunate tendency to crash on me) or http://www.go-mono.com/docs/) is
sufficient for most things. GTK is not really very different than Windows
Forms, just different names. 

I've also found Mono: A Developer's Notebook to be invaluable, and The
Official Gnome 2 Developers Guide to be useful in filling in how and why GTK
and Gnome work the way they do.
