If you do not have a copy of Fannie Farmer get one. Best book for a new cook. Buy your cast iron skillet but be sure to get one that you can easily use. As I have gotten older I have 12 incher is getting heavier and heavier.

I too prefer to use CI pans.
They can be a bit tricky to use for some newbies though.
Newbies can sometimes use too high a heat setting.
The only thing I keep my CI pans away from is any high acidity foods like tomatoes.
The acid and the cast iron can have a reaction to each other that may causes that nice patina on the pan to dissolve and turn the tomato sauce bitter and nasty.
