A Good Tutorial
I installed Snow Leopard and got Maya working and decided to search for a good beginner tutorial because the interface looked fairly intimidating. After searching for a bit I found a good one on YouTube. It is Maya 2009 but I was still able to finish it with no problem or real differences. It is in 5 parts but it covers a lot of basic things ending with you making a nice little ice cream cone. But it starts off by going over the basics of the interface, some hotkeys, navigating around the views, and then creating simple polygons. However I already felt the need for a mouse when the video told me to hold down option and the middle or right button on the mouse to quickly navigate around the view.
