The techniques and materials used for simulating water are going to depend specifically on the type of water being modeled; waves on a beach are different than a mosquito-infested swamp. However, the favorite material around here tends to be Envirotex Lite because it's easy to use, doesn't smell horrible, and is safe for most modeling environments (won't react).
Woodland Scenic's Water Effects seems to run a close second.
As for techniques on how to "make it look really good", these things depend on what you want the end product to be and as there are many examples of water, there are many techniques to achieve these examples. If you have a specific example you're trying to achieve, post that information here and many people will chime in with suggestions. It is less likely anyone will want to spend a few hours writing you a general primer.
Are you trying to make a river, pond, or beach? If you look around here on TG, you'll find people who have done these projects and you can pick up a lot of good tips just by reading their posts. If you have a specific question, ask! We've all done some kinds of water before and can help you avoid disasters.
