That is basically all you need and it is sufficient to know them all in
its basic forms. As Christian mentioned, if you understand the concept
behind Git, there is no magic to it. I suggest to play around a little.

It is easier than you think, I have been through cvs, svn, bzr, hg
myself, and Git is easily the most efficient one,


P.S. Reading is good, but trying is even better :-)
