LMAO :D :D :D
erm - you could read your "manuals" - but if for any reason you can't find them... then try

For some begginner tutorials.
One bit of serpeate advice I'd give you is to stay away from the "Character modelling/car modelling" and advanced tutorials until you have an understanding of the basics. I've seen a lot of people who have started to model faces straight away - and don't even know what a chamfered box/lathe of even a loft is... so if it looks like it's complicated - give it a while until you have a strong grasp of the fundementals. ;)

The mention of illegal software is not a good way to introduce yourself here, that said, there are many ways to learn. As mentioned, use the web, search for tutorials. Also, if you hit that little F1 key on your keybaord that will provide alot of answers. Start simple it doesn't happen overnight.

Whilst they could be improved, the current help and tutorial files that come with Max are a good place to start as are in fact the ones that are available with Gmax (for modelling they are possibly better). :)
Another alternative is to d/l the demo of Nendo and run the scripts that come with it. They are a good introduction to modelling concepts for most programmes.
There is also a clone of Nendo should you like it, called Wings 3D available that is free.:)
