Id suggest Dan Ablans and Larry Schults AKA SplineGods DVDs.

And for tips and tricks you can check something that we've wrote ourselves especially for the newcomer like you. Just click below there in my signature that writtes 1001 tricks and tips..., and it will take you to a list of our best tips and tricks.

Also if it all works out well, you might have a few advantages regarding the Galleries, but its too early to speak of that yet.

So go for it, keep on practicing, and we'll see you later :thumbsup:

and heres a Lot of links...Lightwave tutorials on the web ..mostly free stuff but also links to commercial stuff.
this is sorted under categories with lots of tutes within those.

and for buildings you might start check this..
http://www.members.shaw.ca/lightwavetutorials/everyday_objects.htm#Architecture

Also recomended that you take a look at LWCAD...they also have some nice free tutes for buildings..with focus on their commercial plugin thou.
www.wtools3d.com

Then you have this..some little older stuff, covering dynamics,particles,hypervoxels etc..commercial.

Before you spend any money. Start with the WilliamVaughan videos. They are free and they are the best around.
