Best bit of advice I was given for ribbing was: double check whether you've cast on an even or an odd number stitches before you start the work.
If I'm doing 2 x 2 rib, then it's an even number. I think this particular rib is great for anyone new(ish) to knitting - after a couple of rows you can SEE which stitch should come next. It's much easier to learn how a stitch is made than 1 x 1 rib - especially if using a dark colour.
Please don't get hung up about what name stitches are given - American version Seed Stitch is different from the English one. Nothing like keeping things simple!
All Best Wishes and Happy Ribbing
