You have a few options.

By far the easiest is "apt-get install mono" and that will get you a 
fairly new version of mono. You also don't have to worry if you install 
apps in debian that depend on mono using the package manager. There is 
also meebeys server at the bottom of the download page. Meebey 
maintains the debian mono builds but it takes a while to get a new 
release in so meebey host's his server with the latest testing builds.

If you want to have the latest and want to isolate mono to what you are 
doing only, then the binary installer is the best way to go for that.

Then you can also build from source. :-)
