Your best bet is to (1) get a good book, and (2) get a good teacher. Different books work for different people, so I suggest going to Amazon.com to check out the reviews on various Chinese textbooks. Common choices include "Integrated Chinese" and "New Practical Chinese Reader". I would also supplement textbooks with popular books about the Chinese language in general, as this would teach you the cultural background of the language, its history, and various interesting aspects of it that a normal textbook would not cover. I recommend Mobo Gao's "Mandarin Chinese: An Introduction", John DeFrancis's "Chinese Language: Fact and Fantasy", and Daniel Kane's "The Chinese Language: Its History and Current Usage".
