Again thx for the free tuts - a very welcome add on to the site
Maya still has a whole menu set dedicated to NURBS for a reason but it seems to be in need of some updates and you have specific apps where they work better. Whether NURBS are worth learning as a modeler would depend on what part of the cg industry you intend to work in I think, have a look at the video and article it explains it fairly well.
