With MAX help for example you can learn this soft, without books or tutors, everything included
Just I think Alias try to make more money creating a “bad” help and if you want you can buy DVD, books and so on and so on.
Sorry dude, but Max help is far from being better then maya's help. I have tried both programs (and their help files) and they really aren't all that defrent. You can learn a lot by reading help file, for instance, when you use some tool, you can just click on tool help button, and it will discribe you what it does and how if I'm not mistaken. And (al least for me) maya is more simple 'cause it has categorize (all buttons for animation are under one categorie, so as modelling and other and and use can easily switch between them.
So, to shoten it up, I really don't thing max help is better at all, it's just that if you have perhabs worked with max, it is got used to it and it's a little harder to learn maya.
There are just my thoughts.
