I have several of Foster's books and also the official guides too. One of the first things I've always done with printed books is look at the full color center pages to see what the author shows as their examples of their own abilities. For me, the movies that come with Foster's book are the best overall way for many users to learn. While there are many videos on youtube also, Foster's are clearly communicated, concise, and technically correct. Foster has never claimed to be a commercial production artist or a highly creative individual meeting the design needs of clients. Physical books are traditional, but I think that future learning will be better found in digital format due to the practicality of being able to study anywhere.

When you start, create a new document, setup the page double click on the page border and choose twice the real size. That's all.
