Another word of advice that's helped me out as a DPS: keep your tactics as simple as possible. Know when YOU have to move and what YOU have to avoid, but ignore what everyone else is supposed to do. If someone else screws up, adjust until you wipe or a wipe is called. Unless you're raidleading, you really don't need to know all that crap.Keep it simple and you'll be fine.

Just dealt with this exact thing today. We had four fresh people to ICC 10 and in order to save time and make things as simple as possible, I explained what each of them should do and separated it out into little sections for ease of understanding. Makes explaining fights so much easier and more meaningful.I also concur the precognition part of it all: Knowing exactly what\who is going to happen has saved wipes many times. At least one person has to be able to switch up strategies in anticipation of certain events.

This is very helpful when you start out and it's all new but I would also suggest that it's worth learning the rest as your capacity for information increases. For example it helps to know how and when a paladin tank has to deal with Soul Shriek during the Lich King transition phases and so as DPS you may need to pay more attention to threat etc.
