WadAuthor. Easy to get to grips with. It also builds sectors for you, instead of having to build them up from the ground manually.

(just select 'new rectangular sector' and a 4-sided room appears just like that. To change heights, simply click on it and choose your heights, lighting and special properties like damage etc.)

Seph, if you find you don't like DETH, go and download the DeePSea shareware! :)

I am currently learning how to build maps for DooM and found DeepSea the easiest and best feature wise so far. I especially like the ZDoom and Boom support (the particle effects are cool). As for a tutorial, DeepSea has a built-in basic tutorial that shows how to build simple 4 sided rooms, pits, boxes and some other things. You can find a reference for the line types here: http://cres1.lancs.ac.uk/~esasb1/doom/lintyp10.txt
