This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you have properly installed it (sudo apt-get install gnome-shell) you first have to logout. Next to your name, there is a gearwheel-symbol. Click on it and select Gnome Shell. When you now login, you'll be facing Gnome Shell. This change is being remembered, so if you want to switch back to Unity3d for example, you would have to logout, press the symbol, click on Unity3d and login again.

There is no Gnome Shell option at login screen, the right label is only "Gnome". – sHellboy Feb 12 '12 at 15:57
