Might be something useful in there for somebody. It starts off with "how to create a new document", but they get better, I swear!

From a knowledgeable point of view in standardizing learning Illustrator for specific industry's, a generalized approach with focus on just random courses can only teach a certain amount of information. To truly utilize within a specific industry the scholar has to receive instruction specific to that industry, in our case as cartographers our teaching methods must be specific to this industry, and learning must be done with no additional tools that require money unless it is stated that you need X product in order to learn these lessons.
James, Illustrator is a good tool. Pricey, but very good nonetheless for cartography. I have it at works like so many others here.
In order to know how to create maps in Illustrator, you have somehow to learn how to use Illustrator first and its tools. You need to know how to create a new document, setup the page size, etc., in order to be able to create your map.
Illustrator is not the only tool, but that's no reason to discredit it and Hans' link.
I'm sure there's lots of Inkscape tutorials out there and some on cartography too.
