All the gear... All the time (ATGATT)
Keep to your ability level... don't try to do too much too soon or you'll end up in some sort of accident and it will ruin your whole experience.
Pay attention to what they teach you at MSF and practice all of the techniques over and over again in a controlled environment... i.e. empty parking lot.
Keep to those few things and you should be just fine... enjoy!!!
