Stitch/row counters are my best friend. Except I always loose them. Have a small something to hold all your notions in one place.
Also watch out for European patterns. American single crochet is a slip stitch in european patterns and so on type of thing. Our single crochet is a double.. can get really confusing, especially if you don't know about the difference.

Code:
I just learned to crochet in August, but have found a few things that help me.  I have a little binder clip with one of those page marker things marked with an arrow.  I'm able to move it down the pattern as I need to.  Have also used a dry erase pen on my sheet protectors!  I keep it in my bag as well.


I also have a sheet stand for my patterns.


Plus I use stitch markers when I'm working on circles or anything with changes in stitches.  I put one color at the start of the round.  Another color to use in each spot that I have to double up stitches.  It helps when I have interruptions such as the phone (like now when I'm trying to type this post!
