    If you are into reading, there’s a pretty good series from O'Reilly Press written by David Pogue entitled Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual. There are versions for Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion, though the basics are pretty much the same between the versions...

    There is also a series of videos on the Apple website:

    I also suggest reading the users' manual. You can download one for your device via the following link.

    Open Disk Utility. Repair Disk Permissions. Do this once a week. It'll help keep your mac in tip-top shape. You should also look into an uninstalling-app like AppZapper or AppCleaner, to help remove left-over files from programs.
