I'm ne to magic, and have spent the last year transforming from a laymen, into an amatuer/hobbiest, now I want to strive for the next level. I have a lot of videos and some books, and I've made up my mind to disect everything I own and when the smoke clears hopefully I'll have a better understanding of magic.
I just bought the Tarbell course vol. 1, and I'm wondering is this a good place to start? Or is there another book out there that I should look into first?
Also what are some of the things I should get out of taking the time to study the course?
One last thing can anybody give me some pointers on how to study magic. I'm not sure exactly how to begin!
