All I can say is books bah-)) I've got mine setup looking out the window since I got it. I pratice focussing using the movements. Actually putting film it is a bonus when you've got the big glass to look at. The few books I've got never made 100% sense before I started playing with the camera. Then things started to click.

The only things I can add to Lee's post is to make yourself some sort of mental [or written] checklist. It's so easy after all these years of automatic lens to forget to stop down the lens. Or any of the other little things.
