Pay attention to who is playing a lot of pots, and what cards are being shown. You can figure out who the aggressive players are, and who might be a rock. Play the aggressive players a little looser, by occasionally calling with a little less than you would normally, and reraising a little lighter than you would. Play aggressive against rocks, and get out of the way when they raise you.
And the most important advice, don't get out of line if you are in bad position. Nothing like having to make the decision on each street before your opponent, since you never know where he is at.
Also, I don't mind limping big hands in some spots, just make sure the pot isn't likely to have 6 chasers because of it, and make sure you are only doing it occasionally for deception. The majority of the time you should be raising to put more chips into the pot you intend to win, as long as you figure you are ahead.
Good luck, good luck!!
