Welcome to the Mac Forums.
As a new MacBook Pro owner, you should have been invited by Apple to download their iWork applications for free which are new for OS X Mavericks.
Here are the equivalents to MS Office which can open, edit and save to the MS format:
MS Word = Apple Pages
MS Excel = Apple Numbers
MS Powerpoint = Apple Keynote
I strongly recommend you use the Apple applications as they are free. If later on, you must use MS Office, you can always purchase a copy from any reliable reseller or MS themselves.
As for learning how to use your new Mac, Tips and Tricks, etc. you're already in the best place on the internet. Just stay tuned to our forums and ask questions. Our members are very knowledgeable and more than willing to lend a hand.
Again, welcome and have fun with your new Mac!
