This tutorial shows the process for Windows Movie Maker, although the process is almost exactly the same for all editing programs for both Mac and PC.

Very informative. I like Derek's way of teaching a lot. His lesson plans are very tight and professional. He doesn't give you too much filler conversation and he's on top of his knowledge of the subject. He's good at getting straight to the point and teaching exactly what the viewer needs to know.
