Hello,
What's the best book for learning Lighting, Materials and Rendering using Mental Ray? I want something current, that will guide me through a workflow towards professional looking renderings. thanks

Youtube. ;) I started out by reverse engineering some professional models I bought online. I didn't realize at the time how important quality texture maps are to rendering.

If I can, I would recommend photography and art theory books, too. As far as software, Lynda.com has some good videos.

Then if you have VRay for 3dsMax this is a great channel:
