I'm sure there are many tips people can give. Top tip from me would be to bring a decent pair of insoles, the footwear provided is like walking/running with bricks strapped to your feet and have definitely been the case of injuries for some people.

Get stuck in, do more listening than talking, make sure you don't have too many breaks doing nothing. There's always items of kit that can be improved on, or someone else to perhaps help along. Make sure your boot brushes, polish, iron and washing powder are of a good quality. It's only the first step on a long journey. Enjoy it and best of luck.
Oh aye. Don't call the Master at Arms "Chief".:cool:

Go in with positive attitude and willingness to learn! I went through last year passed out a few months ago. It might seem like it's a long time when u are there but believe me it goes fast! Try and get your kit squared away as soon as possible and as soon as you have to get it washed get it washed ironed and folded straight away to save time and then chill out after don't put it off. I would also say nominate a laundry person to do group washes. That's what we did and it worked miracles for us. Get up earlier than call the hands if your slow so u have plenty of time. Take a decent iron and you will be fine. And keep your fitness up!
Good luck
