Is there a play along with metronome or metronome practice for dummies or a definitive guide to practising with metronome book?

Don’t aim at the beats: you get lucky sometimes, but it’s shooting from the hip.
Be humble: it’s cool to play fast, but if you can’t play with rock solid time at sixty bpm you’re never going to really get it at up tempos. Feel the beat before you play. Sing and clap tap the rhythm. Play the music. Take your time and don’t speed up the tempo until you’re nailing it. It can be frustrating and mistakes happen, so Break it up into shorter intervals of time spaced throughout your routine.
Have fun!
