you should start with the tutorials that come with maya before you even go to google or anywhere else
seriously, you do a few of those from the beginning and you'll be able to figure out how to do almost everything.
and it's up-to-date/relevant-to-your-version so you wont be wondering where the polygons menu set is like every other new person who starts with old video tutorials
that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"
Computer skills I should have:
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D
