I learn from the book: CALLIGRAPHY: TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES FOR THE CONTEMPORARY PRACTITIONER BY GAYE GODFREY-NICHOLLS (this is really the same book as Mastering Calligraphy: The Complete Guide to Hand Lettering). These guidelines are for learning with that book! Read my book review here.
I like to divide ascender and descenders practice to save paper, ink, and space. I use 100 GSM A4 paper. Do not scale when you print, use actual size. Enjoy!
Italic ascender and majuscules
