JSF 2.x, the current specification and part of JavaEE6, is more convenient and easier than the older versions. It also made some of the older version techniques obsolete.
So you should look specifically for JSF 2 tutorials and articles, because most of the material out there pertains to the older obsolete versions.

One resource I liked is Marty Hall's tutorial. It teaches concepts as well as coding well.

Another resource that is not as good but still useful is the JSF section in Oracle's JavaEE6 tutorial
I agree. Here's the link:
