I'm not familiar with that one, but you may want to check out Bob Fenner's book.

Amazon.com: The Conscientious Marine Aquarist: A Commonsense Handbook for Successful Saltwater Hobbyists (Microcosm/T.F.H. Professional): Robert M. Fenner, Matthew L. Wittenrich, Scott W. Michael, Alf Jacob Nilsen, Christopher Turk: Books

There are quite a few other good ones out there as well.

"Oddly enough, it says to pull the tank with water, place your rock, and then poor the sand into the water too, seemed wierd"

Not odd at all. I wouldn't put my rock in anything that didn't have water in it. Tank build, my order is washed/wet sand, water, rock. and the nice trickle of the RO/DI filter works out just fine

As above and Making sure that the rock is worked all the way to the bottom unless another type of framework is made to prevent the rockwork from becoming a landslide.

The fact that you have a book may put you leaps and bounds ahead of the pack. Good for you. Not familiar with the author but reading and real life experience are the best resources to have. Couple that with some friendly advice and you're well on your way!

I work for a water municpality so I know what they add to water to purify it. What they do add is great for humans and it`s great for us but not great for our tanks. Things like silicates and phosphates and nitrates and chlorine and the list goes on. A RO/DI will be a great addition. Here is a great article on tap water.
