I know it’s not much but it is a start. I have begun learning how to maneuver within Adobe Illustrator for the past couple months now. The tutorial I followed is listed below. You learn the basics of using shapes, and the shape builder tool to remove portions of shape objects.
I would rate this tutorial 8 out 10. It is straight forward, and narrator provides sufficient instruction on how to perform the task.
Also, I think this is tutorial for beginners. The key take away is that you get a better understanding and hands on experience using the shape builder tool. This tool is used multiple times throughout the tutorial. It gives you a good sense of what it is capable of.
