Yeah... it sounds odd but.. I'm new at bass, and I'm wondering.. How should I practice?

OK, I did start getting lessons yesterday but c'mon... Notes on the E string? I'm not gonna practice that for a whole week :P Right now I know the notes on all the four strings... and I finished up the book thats gotten me to where I am recently. (not like I'm very far but...) How could I practice daily to increase my skill at bass? Any help would really be appreciated!

Look up some scales and run through them over and over again. Start slow and work your way up. Practice keeping a steady beat, and then learn a song.. A good beginner song is Adam's Song by Blink 182.

you're asking what almost every player gets to instantly
just pick some easy songs and with time raise difficulty while you learn more theory
you should always put at least on an half and hour a day together in a session
1/4 - 1/2 hour - warm ups
1/2 hour - scales (to a metronome)
3/4 hour - hour playing songs ...

just an example
you just put more where you lack.
Learn some songs...

Seven Nation Army - White Stripes
Another One Bites The Dust - Queen
For Whom The Bell Tolls - Metallica

^ I don't play the bass myself, but beginner bassists seem to love those.
