If you mean that the A key does not deselect the mesh, that is correct: to deselect you need to double click (left mouse button) away from the mesh. The keyboard shortcuts are a little different from normal blender so you need a copy of the Sensei_Format_Hotkeys.pdf (which you can find on another part of this site)
The Shift D shortcut produces an array modifier (not a simple duplicate, that is the D key). By default the array modifier has an offset that makes the objects appear stuck together and they are all one mesh: so if you move one you move them all. If you want separate items that you can manipulate individually the only really reliable way would be to D (duplicate the original) then duplicate the resulting pair etc. There are ways to separate elements of an array but it is complicated for us beginners.
