I start off by reading a book or article so that I have a foundation (and dont sound too dumb) before talking to other herpers/breeders. I never bother with pet shops unless they specialize in reptiles, as they often preach nonsense. I find most books to be either too technical (scientific names for every molecule in the snake) or too general (snakes shed their skin and are not slimy, kiddies). The best source of information is the internet, there are excellent articles out there like Melissa Kaplan's site, NERD, etc. and forums like this one.
