For sure a good starting point but it doesn´t make up for learning and understanding the gear in use and it´s behaviour in particular situations.

That is helpful, even though i do not have the D300. Maybe I should use the 3D matrix mode and Dynamic area AF since I shoot landscapes mostly. I have DD's book and I think he mentioned that Single Area AF is best for landscapes so you can focus on the subject you want rather than have the camera focus automatically on everything. Just when I think I have the settings down, I get thrown a curve ball and completely miss:)
