Hi, Our recommendation would be to start with the SQL Injection and Cross-site Scripting material. If you open up an individual lab then it will let you know what difficulty level it is aimed at (Apprentice, Practioner and Expert) so that should also give you an idea of the order that you should be following. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

+1 for filters or subsections on the "all labs" screen. With over 100 labs it's pretty tedious tracking down labs of the appropriate difficulty. site:portswigger.net inurl:web-security "apprentice" in a Google search, looking for results with apprentice in all caps, and saving to bookmarks folder for now
