Any good suggestions?

I'm a beginner but I'd like resources both for basics and for more complex situations.

I've always been a fan of the feature branch pattern wherein you create a new local (or remote) branch for each new feature you work on and keep master just for completed features. In more complex situations some people prefer to have a "development" branch for completed features not yet released and "master" is just for deployed code (in the case of web applications). You'd also want to employ tags in this case for releases. You can read more about this type of branch strategy here.
