I'm getting into backtrack linux for security training and already have some experience with ubuntu. I was wondering if anyone have any suggestions I should do first or any tips.

ARP poisoning is fun on your own network. I did that on my then-gf's computer while I was showing her how it worked, pretty awesome.

Backtrack has very specific uses. Know exactly what you want to do before you start using it. The number of tools available is just mind boggling.

If you are just using it as part of a course, and are being guided through it by someone who already knows what they are doing, you shouldn't have any problems.
