How-To: Use the Pen Tool

Can someone please point me to a descent tutorial, book or something that can explain to me how to use the Pen Tool more effectively and smarter? I would be very much thankful!

Aahhh. The dreaded pen tool...

At first, a bit puzzling and unintuitive how the hell does this work? And then, with a little practice it becomes second nature.

But which pen tool?

The one in Photoshop, Illustrator, Quark etc? They all have their different quirks.

Here's some for Photoshop which I found in about 30 secs with Google.
Basic Pen
Paths & the Pen Tool
Pen Tool Tutorial

Thanks for the links! I really appreciate them. Yes it was for Photoshop I should have been bright enough to post for which.

I was wanting input from users that know and have advice I will definitely go over the links. Thanks very much!
