Nothing's ever easy.

You can't really study matlab, matlab is a tool that will allow you to perform... well, almost everything. It's just like trying to study "hammer". You can swing a hammer more or less skillfully, but if you don't know what a nail is, it will do you little good to be a Doctor es hammering.

In other words, Matlab is easy enough to use, but if you don't understand the maths behind it, it won't be that useful.

Anyhow, there are great tutorials at the official matlab website

On a more concrete level, Matlab language is quite similar to C, though simpler in many respects.
