Hey Slash! :) Just use milita gear to start off. And watch as many videos as possible, till you understand about Skill Points, ISK, milita gear, dropsuits etc. Just watch as many videos till you understand it all. And save up your Skill Points, don't use them on anything yet.
go to the Militia Gear section of the Market, buy around 5-10 of every suit and every weapon. Then on your Fitting Screen mix and match every suit and every weapon until you find one you enjoy and THEN spend points on them
