Learning DSGE with dynare

Hello everyone, I am trying to learn dsge models. For now I learned to obtain first order conditions of model. Now I want to learn model solving on dynare. But I have a lot of question about this case. 1) When I am looking solved model on dynare, I saw that while steady state block was placed in some models but at some models have not. Why? 2) Some models include log linear version (used Uhlig’s methood or Taylor Expansion) however, some models does not (this models codes contain ‘exp’ term ). What is the difference betweeen this two circumtances. And Is there any book or notes which is telling simply model solving on dynare with data . Thanks
