The internet plays an important role for scientific discourse and the distribution of geospatial data. Inevitably there are some very good tutorials available online. The best ones have been produced by major players in the industry. Their main drawback seems to be that they tend to emphasise the positive aspects of the application of the technologies and don't always provide a full assessment of the limitations. For that reason you should not rely solely on them in your studies.
