I just downloaded CS6 and in creating a text layer i encountered the font size is too small. I picked 500 pt to see and it appears as 30pt on my screen not sure what going on. Any idea on how I can fix this?

Check the resolution of the document, and make sure you are not confusing pixels with points.

Also, if the document is zoomed out, then you will be seeing the size of the type as it will render (i.e.: smaller because you are zoomed out).

Also, are you adding text to an existing text layer?  If so, if the layer has been transformed, then the final point size might not be what you expect.
