Hi Racingfan421
This is my first post i hope it helps. :eyebrowlift:
A good first tutorial for grass is
http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=68269
Also if you go to this amazon link you can download Chapter 4 from bounce tumble and splash by Tony Mullen which is about hair modeling and has a small part on grass at the end

As a general rule i find that there are lots of tutorials around on sites like Blendernation, Blenderartists, and Blender.org if you even check the forums each day there are lots of good ideas and info available there too and links to other great resource sites.
