I'm creating this for the fact, I'm tried of getting contacted asking for help then finding out they need a bit more than help. I suggest for you total beginners out there that you go through each of these links before you ask for "help".

Link: A step-to-step tutorial on creating your first room. Also helps you get a feel for entities.

Link: A tutorial that describes the basic tools within your Hammer editor.

Link: A tutorial on creating your first ramps for your surf maps.

Link: An article describing the entities used specifically for CSS mapping.

If anyone else knows of some good starting tutorials/ articles please add the links to your post with a small description of what they contain/ teach.

Be sure to grab the custom fgd from editlife: http://editlife.net/  this contains entities needed for many of the tutorials on the site.
