Complete beginner here. I'm trying to follow this tutorial on Anisotropic shaders, but my property panel looks nothing like the property panel in the tutorial. For example, when creating a material, this is what his property panel looks like:

The property panel in the tutorial

But this is what mine looks like, if I follow the same path:

My property panel

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious. How can I see the property panel shown in the tutorial?

This is because you are using the Blender Internal render engine.

Switch the render engine to Cycles at the top of the screen in the Info panel:

You're using Blender render instead of Cycles. To change it click on the option button titled "Blender Render" on the top info panel and select "Cycles Render":
