I can't say much for the spreads, but when I first started reading my tarot, I made myself flashcards. I'd take images of the card that I'd made copies of or printed off the computer and make quick notes about each card on the back of the flashcard. I'd go over them a few times a day until I had familiarized myself with the imagery and meaning.
There are so many different decks, meanings, and interpretations and layouts for the art of Tarot Divination that it can become quite overwhelming. So start with one deck, a few simple layouts, and practice, practice, practice! Write down what you believe the meaning of each short reading to be, then compare it to the actual meaning of each card. So, along with implementing the excellent suggestions from the others, make sure you are doing it as often as you can. Repetition may not be exciting or flashy, but the more you use them over and over, the stronger you will build your memory, and the better you will be able to interpret and relate each card's meaning to the one next to it!
