I would like to see the help files list the advantages and disadvantages for each option, when multiple options for a function are listed.  Currently options are listed, but the user must try to figure out what the advantage of one option is over another.  It would also be good if it gave "best practices" examples for functions.
A tool is only a part of a workflow though. Perhaps what would be better would be a set of help documents or a user driven web site where best practices could be disscussed for various workflows. "I need to do X, what is the best way to accomplish this?" Or do you mean what are the best values to start from when running an unfamiliar tool?
Yes, when using an unfamiliar tool, it often means lots of trial and error and lots of time wasted.
