Start half ways down the page under Basics. Then prepare yourself for random crashes of the editor.

I too want to start mapping, but I don't want to sift thru manuals for an hour or two. I have some experience in 3d using Maya 5.0 (I think that's the version I used), but have yet to try anything with UED. Is there anything important I should know before I jump in?

*note* see the cow with the AK? my work :) like it? made it with Maya. which, i might add, i no longer have access to. see, i was taking a comp anim class thru my highschool, but now the class is over (hey, it IS summer, after all). therefore--> no more anim software for me :(

no, you can also NOT read tutorials
like I did at first, but i had no internet or anything so thats why
but if you read them, it will save you so much time
fugiring out a lot of stuff yourself takes a lot of time

so if you want to figure everything out yourself,go ahead, it just a waist of time if it takes you 4 years longer to be able to make a descent map

Yes. Been learning UEd, Maya, and Photoshop for over a year and still haven't learned everything I need to know about in any of them. UEd by quite a bit has more to learn than Maya or Photoshop, at least for Map making/Game content is concerned.
