first of all, well don for asking for help, it does make a huge difference. If there were only one thing to tell a beginner is that there are two ways to win. The first one is easy - win more hands than the other guy. The second one takes more practice and that's don't lose all of your money.
As a beginner, it's generally better to fold than to risk all (or a big chunk) of your stack when you are essentially flipping a coin. (at least as far as the odds are concerned)
So if you have AK against someone who goes all-in, I would typically suggest that you don't call all the time. You are slightly less likely to win than a big pair.
