General opinion is that two rooks are meant to be slightly better than a queen. But I think it is very dependant on the board! Also, the two rooks take a lot of skill to use properly.
For a very contemporary demonstration of the power of the rooks, look at this Kramnik vs Leko match from the recent WC: www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1306138 (you'll probably have to copy & paste the URL rather than clicking it directly due to a quirk of the way these forums handle URLs)
Good luck in your studies,
