I find analyzer a useful starting point, but I always end up making couple test prints before getting to the exact color and exposure I want. The best advice for color I have is to standardize on ONE paper, and one or two films. This way you will not drive yourself crazy with different filtrations. The second advice for color printing I have is: the color paper is dirt cheap, use it and don't try to save it! The more you experiment, the quicker you'll get a hang of it, and the less paper you will end up wasting in the long run.
