i've downloaded blender alot and I can never seem to get anything down.
My first problem was editing a point on a cube, then it was creating a sphere ( I kept hitting circle), know i can't get set smooth towork. I know to hit a-key til all the faces are highlighted, then to hit set smooth, but all I get is an alternate shade in the edit window. Help would be greatly appreciated!

you might want to read the manual.

Set smooth is just alternate shading - you want to subsurf or subdivide smooth to change the geometry.

What I think you mean is you want to use subsurf, it is found in the same window as "set smooth" but two panels to the right. Turning it on should smooth your mesh.

You might want to try looking through this, and then this

Alternatively, questions like this are better put on one of the user forums such as elysiun.com

Edit: Basicly, what LetterRip said ;)
