60-70% of driving is paying attention to other drivers' behavior and adjusting accordingly. Watch traffic patterns and anticipate what other drivers might be trying to do.
Accelerate smoothly, brake smoothly, turn smoothly, and give yourself plenty of room between you and other vehicles.4

Nah. Basically, start the car, put the clutch in and shift to 1st, slowly build the revs with the gas while letting out the clutch. Takes a couple tries to get it, but it's quite easy. You can just redline it and dump the clutch too, but that's considered anti-social.
Basically, when you get to about 3/4k revs, upshift. When you're braking, either press in the clutch for the entire time you're braking or shift into neutral. Downshift when the revs drop below 2k.
Never, ever, shift from 5th to 2nd or something dumb like that. You'll pop the valve heads out.
That's pretty much the basics of standard, if you're learning auto
