He meant light room 4 beta, 3.7 is the most current version (that i know of anyhow with the exception of the beta)
a good starting point is actually here in these forums, check under snapshot of the day, there is a thread that's called "beginners crash course..."
in there you will find some books listed by forum members as well as some other info regarding the very things you are asking about.
otherwise, if you see people post pictures you like in picture of the day or other, don't be afraid to ask what settings people are using and what gear, we all like to help and learn ourselves.
