What SHOULD be in the manual
  1. UNDERSTANDING: Practice in the simulator. Practice mining, practice fighting, practice docking. Experiment with things to find out what they do BEFORE you try to do it for real. [Muffy: please note that online sim time is counted for duty hours. (though everything else you do in there doesn't affect your stats)]
  2. EXPERIENCE Never ever ever take level 2 or 3 missions (of any type) until you know the level 1's like the back of your hand and have put in a few dozen hours' flight time. Not because they can't be done, but because they require some common sense that a newbie just isn't going to have without spending some time going out there and poking around.
  3. SAFE MINING HABITS: Best piece of advice I ever got for mining missions was "don't take any mining mission where you don't already have the ore in your hold". I.e., go out and mine, then dock and pick your mining mission based on what you found. You won't ever get stuck that way (every station always needs Commons anyway).
  4. MERCHANT PRINCE OR PAUPER?: Focus on doing missions, transport missions in particular for the first few levels. Don't try the Privateer thing of trading for profit. It's not worth it. (Except if you're in a tow.)
  5. COMPUTER ENEMIES: Fight Conflux. In the end, this is by far the fastest way to advance, and it teaches you to take care of yourself in a fight. [Muffy: Just be sure to practice fighting them in the online simulator, "individual conflux" zone]
  6. CHAT BOOTHS: Join your faction channel (F5:sol, oct, qbld - for Solrain, Octavius, or Quantar respectively) and listen in. You pick up all sorts of good info that way.
Once you've gained a few levels doing these kinds of things, you should have a better feel for the game. At that point, it's time to start setting goals for yourself, like getting medals. Medals are good XP, and getting them makes you do a lot of different stuff, which in turn teaches you more about the game.

That should get you started.

there's a number of rumoured hacks that got publicized and the inventors banned...couple of useful ones, really, but i've never seen them in action. There are a few really neat legit hacks that have been allowed to monitor market commodities, etc, but i doubt you're interested in anything but being a smart ass script kiddie wannabe
