My advice is that you should not worry about plug ins just yet and learn after effects. AE can do much more than any plug in and knowing AE can get you a job. Knowing Boris plugins will not do that. Add this to the fact that if you bought the budle you already have AE and I would say that it is a no brainer where you should focus your studies. As for how to go about learning AE start with http://www.creativecow.net they have a great supply of AE video tutorials (they are even available on iTunes as a video podcast just search for creative cow). Also the Creating Motion Graphics series by Chris and Trish Meyer is great. AE is not near as easy to learn as premiere (which is why not near as many people are graphic artists and compositors) but it is easy once you get some key concepts down. (the work is difficult but the software is easy) Also Magic bullet is awesome I would definitely get a copy of that if you want a great color manipulation software.
