Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

Are you rendering subd? This behavior is very common when rendering subd components in mental ray if the components have geometry that mental ray does not like.

Check normals, Check for non-manifold geometry. The cleanup tool can help find geometry problems.
