If you plan to take Blender Tutorials either Live or Recorded, it is best to first learn your way around the world of Blender. Like any foreign place it is a little confusing, but maps do help. Maybe the following maps will help you to find your way through the maze of windows, viewports, drop down menus and buttons.
NOTE: In order to shove everything under one roof, all the crooks and nannies in the Blender World are reached by opening up one door (menu) to see the one behind, or better said, underneath it. Expect your options to change from Object to Edit Mode and in other modes, or processes. Once you understand the concept of navigating around the screen, Blender will show you more hospitality.
