Welcome to the Unity World my friend.
Well Unity is not a piece of cake to learn but is a lot simpler that other game engines.
What do you need to know?
Well Unity Is a game engine, with Unity you can not create complex 3d models, just cubes, cylinders etc..
You will need a 3d software for your assets.(You can start with blender, it is open source)
And the coding is simple, I reccomend you reading the 15 page introduction to Unity scripting that they provide, look up for unity scripting pdf. (free)
Here I left you some tutorials that will help you to learn Unty pretty fast.
Good Luck sham32ali.

I think it depends on what you come into Unity knowing already.
In a lot of ways, Unity is very 'drag and drop' in the way it handles making a game, and it vastly simplifies many complex problems. You can drag models into a scene. You can drag behaviors onto those models. You can drag particle effects onto the screen. You can use a simple properties panel to modify aspects of the particles. You can paint scenery onto models...
Just download the trial version and have some fun with it. Download the example projects found on unity's website and start playing with the tutorials. See what it's like when you create tutorial mashups. Check out what works and what doesn't.
