I just keep the Universal Head guide nearby as a quick reference - useful for the 'What does a yellow/purple monster mean' and 'I've been driven insane in Yuggoth - what now' questions.
Once you've played it a couple of times the 'flow' of the game should be ok.
Mistakes I have made include:
Forgetting to count gates - too many and the final battle should begin.
Not adding a token to the doom track when a gate appears during an encounter.
Thinking I could use a 'hand' for a weapon after failing a spell.
You have to buy one of the three items if you can afford it (i.e you can't wait in the Curiosity shop hoping for Elder Signs)
A good tip is to always leave a doom counter on the stack of gates - then you never forget to add it.
Also roll lots of 6's
