Hi. Immediately after pressing the cylinder button from the shape tools menu or after adding a cylinder via the add menu (press Shift-A or double right click anywhere in the 3D View to bring up the add menu), you can either double tap Space to bring up the operator menu (basically a menu used to adjust recently added objects or recently used tools), then change the amount of “vertices” in that menu. You can get to the same operator menu by pressing the little plus tab icon at the bottom of the tool shelf (press T to bring up the toolshelf in the 3D View, it is the menu that pops up on the left).

These are Blender default menus and thus I didn’t write them or else I would have chosen a less ambiguous term for “sides of the cylinder” than “vertices”.
