My guess is most folks just figure things out along the way based on their otherwise knowing or add to it by buying a manual. If you can find a Clymer or Haynes manual for your bike model, buy it. These manuals make things MUCH easier because they do not assume you are certified like the factory ones do.
Whoops, it appears to be with the MN DOT. Not sure if other states have this program, but you can check it out here. In my MSF course two years ago they recommended that beginners take this one during their first year of riding (which I'm in).
