Depends, have you done any programming before?

If so, then your main focus should be on syntax, and understanding what makes abap different than other languages.

If not, then I suggest learning another language first.  Learn some java, java tutorials are everywhere (Google), and every question you may have has already been asked and answered online.

After you have a firm grasp in java on primitive/non primitive types, arrays, and object oriented programming, then I would start learning abap's syntax.

understanding object oriented programming is vital before learning abap.

There is actually some java in sap, so it will not be a waste of time.  Also there are a lot of similar elements between the two languages such as garbage collection.
