Looks like the room they have waiting for me in hell.

Grotey posted this link and it's the best uvw tut I think:

Here's a lighting tut I like but it's for vray:

I know there's some good lighting tuts for mr.
Some one will be along with one.
Good luck.

an easy and quick although dirty method for mapping hard edged stuff in max would to select everything on the front and back (y axis)of everything in poly mode, add a uvw modifier, planar, copy the largest number to the smaller in the height and width area so the planar map device is square, copy the modifier(so you can paste and rotate 90' instead of applying a new one and adjusting the size every time), add an uvw unwrap and in the edit window move them to one side, add an edit poly modifier
repeat with everything side to side ( x axis) then top to bottom (z axis)
then after the end edit poly modifier add a final uv unwrap and move the chunks so they cover the most amount of uv space by rotating, moving and even scaling (if it'll make no difference to the texture applied- meaning you can't just put a uniform wood texture on after scaling one part as it'll have a larger or smaller wood grain in this case)- you'll have lots of overlapping uv chunks that'll need their own unique space- or not if you can get away with things repeating- like the books in your scene above
weird sence of scale and decor in that room
