The best place to start in magic is History, Basics (herbs, plants, stones, general rules, et al) and Safety. If a person has a grasp on those then I would recommend protection spells and blessings as a first course in casting. Just my opinion of course. :-)

It depends on what you want to learn. First though you should learn to shield. All magic has consequences and if you mess with things you don't understand you can get hurt. Or other can get hurt because of your actions. Know what it is you are doing before doing it and look at all the consequences it could have. Never undertake any spell lightly no matter how "small" it is. Even the seemingly small ones can have huge impacts.

Thanks for the advice.
AuraJade, I've tried a defense spell to shield my mind, but I'm not sure if it worked. Is there a way to know?

Well, if you're serious about learning how to do magic and with starting from the rock-bottom then you don't start out by casting spells, you start out by learning how and why magic works.

You see, there is no such thing as an "easy" spell or a "beginner" spell. One either understands how magic works and has mastered the which case the magic will work..or you haven't done that sort of work..and no spell will work no matter how "easy" it seems.

Casting a successful spell involves much more than finding some spell on the internet or in a book, saying some words, lighting a candle, waving a wand of any of that sort of thing. In order for magic to work you need to understand how and why it works in the first place. Grounding and centering, visualization, focus and intent, energy manipulation, etc are all necessary first steps to even begin to have a chance at a spell actually working...and more importantly to prevent a spell from back-firing on you.

So, my advice for anyone who is truly serious is to start by reading a few books and practicing the exercises those books will give you. Once you have mastered the basics you won't need anyone to give you spells, you'll be able to create your own spells that will be far more effective than anything you find on the net. Here's the books I suggest:

"Before You Cast a Spell" by Carl McColman

"Spells and How They Work" by Janet and Stewart Farrar

"The Veil's Edge" by Willow Polson

"Modern Magick" by Donald Michael Kraig
