Just to add to this through my personal experience.

Nick is right.
Documentation is a very well place to begin with.

It gives you good basic understanding of the Stata.

It should be used as the first step to answer your question. If further explanation is needed with examples then there are several websites that provide more hands on explanations e.g. UCLA and Princeton websites.

The exact quote is:
"Numerous users seem to determined to slow themselves down by Googling everything when the richest resource is bundled on the language within Stata."

He means: when you want to know something about Stata ask Stata and not some other source. The pdf documentation is now included with Stata, and a good place to start is the Users' Guide. Just click on help and go to the pdf Documentation.
