I don't have that model but it's very similar. I use a large cardboard box on it's side to paint in, big enough for a large cake and turntable. Works in a pinch but you have to get your lighting right so you're not working "in the dark" if you know what I mean.
Get a very good mask for your nose and mouth, it's gross, really, and all that stuff ends up in your lungs.
Practice with a childs colouring books to start with, both flat on the table and propped up against something.
The best thing I ever did though, was take a class with someone. It was great, especially since I was scared to take the airbrush out of the box for over a year in case I painted the whole place green or something!
But if your package includes a DVD it will be a good start.
Also, it's very addictive. You will want to airbrush everything . Have fun!
