Best advice is to go to the subforum and read through the various topics there, a lot of stuff has been gone over in pretty good depth and it'll save you time figuring things out.

aside from that the first things i can think of
-Monster stats are incomplete: without skills and talents the monsters are wildly below even a starting character, so put aside some time to make some plug-in skillblocks for random monsters if you can.
-combat solves the whiffing issue by being fairly unbalanced about forcing a resolution, so be very aware that even a slight boost is very powerful and keep an eye on how the combat goes
-dying is a bit harder, and healing is a bit easier than it used to be. don't worry TOO much if you bang them up a little.

Are you running your own scenarios, published ones or conversions?
