Are you planning to write webapps or are you only wishing to deploy
webapps you've acquired from other sources?

If you wish to learn to write JEE webapps, then I recommend the
latest version (currently 6.0.18).

If you wish deploy existing webapps, then I suggest you check with
the providers of those webapps as to which is the best version.

In most cases, the latest version should work fine.

You should also read the documentation.  Books don't hurt either.
I like "Tomcat The Definitive Guide" by Brittain and Darwin for
Tomcat administration and "Head First Servlets & JSP" by Bashram,
Sierra & Bates as an introduction to writing Java web apps.
