    Where do you want to start ... there are some fantastic resources out there depending on who you are and what you are after. Personally I would recommend reading a few blogs around it first ... Alan Richards, Dave Coleman, Adrian Edgar, Alex Pearce, Stuart Wilkie and many more have really good blogs.

    I would start with Matthew Hughes' project SharePoint 365 | SharePoint for the masses as a good start (which pretty much has links to all the above)

    I've had the same problem, the answer is, it's a universal hammer, it does everything. It's primary focus is document management and all the accoutrements that go along with that. You can add web parts customisations and templates to customize it, hook it up to databases, web services etc. Think of it like a document focused programming language. Moodle on steroids, caffeine and methanfedimene.

    Can it do it, probably. Can it do it well, depends on how good you are with it.
