You've got a lot to learn and it will be tons of fun, but you will help yourself by taking it seriously and understanding the subtleties - smooth is fast and all that. It's kind of like golf, but louder.

Brake early, concentrate on your transition from braking to turning. Divide the track in your mind into sections - this will train you to consider the rhythm that a sequence of turns creates and reward you when you get some set of turns right. It's very fulfilling.

Something to consider - at any road racing level there's always a few guys that are always at the front. No matter the level, what those guys have in common is corner entry speed. So they brake less. Except they're going faster when they do.
