Seeing as you are just starting out, the reason I suggested 'regular speed' games is because you'll have the oppurtunity for a bit more play in them in early levels before stacks are shallow.
In the turbos you'll need to brush up on shove/fold game & ICM considerations (perhaps a bit more so than the reg. speeds). You're also more apt to find more multi-tablers playing the Turbos (but at the lowest buyin levels it probably doesn't matter).
There's alot of common mistakes newer players make in SNG's & probably the biggest is playing too many hands. Watch the table closely... very often you'll find that the players who seem to be folding most of the time in early levels are the ones who seem to come alive as blinds increase.
For some others you might want to google-search "The mistakes low buyin Sng players are making the most" by Jennifear (< sng coach)
