Getting Started Unit #4: Meet the Piano
Printout #2 discusses the layout of the piano keyboard, some basics of fingering, and why you would want to learn this.

As always I recommend using computer-aided study to master this skill quickly:

PC / Mac

Robert Whelan has a piano keyboard drill up at, which will run in any java-enabled browser.

iPhone & iPad

If you've already sprung for Tenuto ($4) you have two nice keyboard quizzes. This app is highly recommended. If, for some reason, you want an app that focuses exclusively on piano keys you could try Play Piano HD ($2) for iPad, Piano Notes Fun ($2) for iPhone, or Piano Notes Pro ($3) for iPad.
