Electric stove cooking

@BananaMonkey's question about cooking w/gas stoves reminded me of the question I needed to ask for all of your help with.
We're going to be staying at a country home quite a bit that has an electric stove. I've always cooked with gas. Those electric stove cookers...what tips do you have? Is there a 'learning curve' when cooking on an electric stove? (The one thing we did learn the hard way was the amount of residual heat from the electric burner.)
