    Well, pretty common sense...

    Evaluative: When you want the camera to meter the whole scene
    Partial: when you want the camera to meter based on a section of the image
    Spot: when you want the camera to only use one small spot for metering.

    Which to choose when will depend on what you are shooting and what outcome you desire. This is where your creativity as a photographer comes in. There is no magic formula.

    For landscapes, you could use wide area AF, or spot, etc. Up to you. But if you're serious about landscapes, learn about hyperfocal distance.

    Hmm, no offense but I hardly think it's common sense..

    Metering modes are difficult at first for beginners to understand. But as they go along, they will start to know and understand more.

    So what's left to do is tons of reading up and practice. That's about it I guess.

    TS, Page 119 in the 60D manual gives a decent description of the metering modes.

    For a more in depth description on when to use them, you should pick up a book or search online.
