Its not a matter of what type of documents. Its more to do with the
features of the application. Learn how to create the following:

Master Pages
Tags; Character and Paragraph
Table of Contents Generation
Multifile Books

You learn these four features and you've taken care of 90% of the
application. The rest, such as what kinde of documents, is universal
between any word processor.

You might want to check out Adobe's Classroom in a Book. That's how I
learned FM over a weekend.

Close enough that if you know 5.5, it will take all of 10 minutes to
make the transition.
