There are small difference, but you will not be lost with maya if you know max. I went to full sail where we mainly worked with maya, but we had a one month class with max where we learned the basics of it. Once you know one 3d package you can learn others fairly easily, so I wouldnt worry about it too much

I've only been working with 3D for a couple of months, school taught Max first, then Maya for specialisation, I prefer the latter.
The only thing about Maya that I recall is that there's no edge constraint function.
But like Vara said above, modelling in one package is almost the same as another. It's just a matter of learning the hotkeys and in Maya's case having a customisable shelf for your most used tools.
