I recently installed SharePoint 2013 on a VM with windows server 2008 and swl 2012. But I need some direction to start configuring the SharePoint. I found microsoft tech notes too complicated. Can anyone who experienced this help me please.
That's a pretty wide-open question. Configure for what? SharePoint provides a lot of functionality, which does require some complex, and sometimes frustrating setup.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'Microsoft Tech Notes'.. Do you mean TechNet? While it may seem complicated, there is truly a wealth of information in there which you'll need to understand if you want to have a working, solid SharePoint environment.
My best advice is to start here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/fp123606. These videos and presentations will give you a very broad overview on what to expect with SharePoint 2013. I wish I could say that a deployment is as easy as 'Next--> Next--> Finish', but as with any enterprise type application, it's not.
