They helped me alot when I started out because I never paper scrapped and found getting the right shadow very difficult. PSE 4.0 doesn't allow you to change the colour of the shadow and I found it difficult to get shadows that I liked with the default drop shadows. If you use the defaults you can adjust the size of the shadow right down.
When I started I use to look at paper scrap layouts in mags for the same item I was trying to shadow and see what kind of shadow it had. If in doubt and you have supplies lie one on a piece of paper.
The other problem with shadows is that they vary depending on the light source so you have to pick a shadow direction and stick with it for everything on the layout. All shadows should sit in the same direction.
