The WoW battle chest is usually a good buy, there's WoW and the first expansion with the game guides included.
Be warned though just buying the game won't get you any time playing it, you have to buy a time card too.
You can get a free 10 day pass and at the end of that you can turn that into a full account by buying the game (and as many expansions as you like) plus a time card.
10 days would give you a good go, you could hit level 20 within the 10 days but it's not overly likely.
The original game does not come with a "30/60/90 play time" card as such, you register the CD-Key against your account and they can tell it's new which gives you 30 days play time. That's how it worked with mine anyway.Originally Posted by X-13
When I did my 10 day trial, there were no limitations on it, apart from you can only roll races from the original game? Mind you, this was a few years ago so it may have changed.Originally Posted by x-13

I stand corrected. From Wow-Wiki:
When you sign up to a trial account, you are limited to the following:
Maximum level of 20.
Maximim of 10 Gold
Capped at 100 in your two main professions, or 150 in secondary professions.
You can't create or join a guild.
You can't whisper someone who has not added you to their friends list.
You can't trade, either via the auction house, mailbox or player-to-player trading.
You can't use in-game chat channels other than say, whisper, party, etc.
You can't receive mail other than from Game Masters.
You can't use voice chat.
You can't use the paid character transfer service.
You can't invite other players to a party.
You can't join a party with a player above level 20.
You can't use /yell.
You can't use Real ID features.
hmm... Says nothing about races. Maybe I can make a Worgen after all.
If not it's Blood Elf Rogue all the way.
I did the trial recently, you can use worgen. Worth doing the trial for 10 days or until you hit the level cap, then activate!
Levelling in wow is extremely fast now btw, probably 10-20 minutes per level @ 10-20.
Next question... Race abilities, stats, skills
How does it work? [and can you redo stat/skill distribution if you make a mistake]
The WoW website says you can only have a 10 day trial for the expansions (including playing as the races) if you have the previous required expansions:
For your Vanilla WoW trial, you need to own no WoW games and can play as a Night Elf, Human, Dwarf, Gnome, Ork, Forsaken, Troll or Tauren.
For a Burning Crusade 10 day trial, you must own a copy of WoW, but in the trial, you can play as a Draenei or Blood Elf
For a Wrath of the Lych King 10 day trial, you must own WoW and The Burinig Crusade expansions, but in the trial you can play as a Death Knight
For a Cataclysm 10 day trail, you must own a copy WoW, the Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lych King, but in the trial, you can play as a Worgen or Goblin
So for your trial, you will be restricted to Night Elf, Human, Dwarf, Gnome, Ork, Forsaken, Troll or Tauren.

Each race has certain abilities, you can read about them on the wow website. They're all fairly similar, and don't make much difference in the end.
Stats are applied automatically, so don't worry about them!
Skills / talent points, you get 1 every other level, and once learned can only be unlearnt by paying at your trainer (free the first time i think). At level 30 you get 'dual talents', so you can have two seperate specs and switch between (handy if you are a hybrid, so you can have a healer spec and a DPS spec, or a tank spec and a healer spec).
Forsaken it is then. Or maybe Ork. Probably still rolling a rogue. I just wanted a race I liked.
I've played things where it gets set in stone and where you can respec as you like.
With the race abilities, do you have to assign points or do they auto-level?
