Liz Castro has just published a book that is essentially up-to-date with 
the CR version of XML schemas.  Although it's aimed somewhat toward 
novices/webmasters  stylistically, I think it does a pretty good job of 
picking up where the primer leaves off on core schema concepts.   It also 
has intros to XSL, Xlink, etc.  It's:

XML For the World Wide Web, by Elizabeth Castro. 

See:

I think Barnes and Noble has it too.

Among the "Presentations, guides, and tutorial materials"
indexed at
                 http://www.w3.org/XML/Schema

this seems relevant:

The XML Schema Specification in Context
    by Rick Jelliffe, Academia Sinica Computing Centre
    2000-02-24 draft only
    compares XML Schema with XML DTDs, SGML DTDs, HyTime, and perl
regular expressions 
http://www.ascc.net/~ricko/XMLSchemaInContext.html


Also, if you like to "Use the Source, Luke!" you might
like to study a tool that converts DTDs to schemas:

                 A Conversion tool from DTD to XML Schema in perl; open 
source.
