He's using 8.2.

Uv mapping depends a lot on what you're mapping. It's usually best to split up your object when doign uv maps, eg do the arm as a cylindrical map, and then the head as a different cylindircal map. You can't just use a cylindrical map on the whole object. Even after that it's best to move the points around so that each polygon has enough of the map.

I personally usually make a morph map and do all of my editing there before creating a uvmap.
