Coastal cruising Ft. Lauderdale to Biscayne bay Florida- Which NOAA charts?

I have never purchased NOAA paper charts before and am not sure which ones to get. I am learning coastal navigation and need to get paper charts for Port Everglades Florida down to Biscayne Bay/ Key Biscayne or maybe Key Largo furthest.
I have been searching the NOAA site to order to right charts but am not sure which charts are the correct ones to simply practice dead reckoning on - I will not be the captain in charge and I just need the charts for my own study and practice. Any feedback for those who have coastal cruised this region who know the best charts to buy for my specific purposes would be really appreciated-

You can get some free NOAA booklet charts here:
NOAA BookletCharts(TM)
They print out on 8 x 11 paper and may have to tape them together. But, since you just want to practice you can't beat the price: FREE! You can then order more durable ones when you are ready after you see which ones you will need.
