You could spend some time browsing through the forum and reading different posts. I learn a lot by reading about other forum members experiences, comments and questions. Even if it doesn't pertain to me at the time.....sometimes I learn things that come up later. You can search for things like "potty training", "crate training", "grooming", etc.
Its hard to narrow it down to a few suggestions b/c a new puppy is a lot of work! But I'll try... Keep them on a schedule, start training & socializing early, be strong & don't give into their puppy cuteness all the time, make sure you start leaving them alone for short periods of time from the beginning so they don't develop separation anxiety [I made this mistake!], have fun & try not to stress too much over them [made this one too!].....oh and don't expect them to be potty trained quickly, sometimes it can take more time than you think!
Enjoy your new pup....and make sure you post lots of pictures!
