What does 6th form mean?

It's a reference to the UKs educational system, I believe. 6th form, if I recall correctly is the equivalent of a high school senior in the States.

This Is The Faith by Canon Ripley is a good solid overview. It also has a list of heresies in the back with short description of their, uh, heresy and the timeframe.

Here's a bunch of free books on PDF files. http://www.sedevacantist.com/books/

Also, are you aware of Archive.org? This is an invaluable resource. You have an virtually endless resource of Catholic books available for FREE on this site to download on PDF files. You can transfer them on your mobile devise and read to your hearts content.

The number of out-of-print orthodox Catholic books at archive.org is ginormous!  :D

Unfortunately, it's not always easy to find stuff on there. I've bookmarked a bunch of resources I thought were interesting at http://archive.org/bookmarks/catquilt
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Unfortunately, I struck out on Ecclesiology books. They seem to have a lot of the Dogmatic Theology books, though.
Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Take any post I write with a grain of salt. I've been wrong before, and can be again

The ecclesiology textbooks are only, if that, more detailed treatments of the treatises/tracts on ecclesiology in the manuals of dogmatic theology.  The dogmatic manuals of Msgr. Van Noort (vol. II) and Very Rev. Tanquerey (vol. I) should prove quite useful to you.
"Is there no exception to the rule forbidding the administration of the Sacraments to baptized non-Catholics who are in good faith? In the case of those who are in good health, the prohibition is absolute; no dispute on this point is possible in view of the repeated explicit declarations of the Holy Office" (Rev. S. Woywod, A Practical Commentary on the Code of Canon Law, vol. I, sec. 625, p. 322ff.).

Contrast the above with the 1983 CIC, Can. 844 §3 & 4: "Catholic ministers administer the sacraments of penance, Eucharist, and anointing of the sick licitly to members of Eastern Churches which do not have full communion with the Catholic Church. . . .  If the danger of death is present or if, in the judgment of the diocesan bishop or conference of bishops, some other grave necessity urges it, Catholic ministers administer these same sacraments licitly also to other Christians not having full communion with the Catholic Church." — The phrase "properly disposed" does not save the canon from error, because the context shows that no conversion is expected on the part of non-Catholics ("manifest Catholic faith in respect to these sacraments" is the sole requirement).

For a theology appertaining to Sacred Images the Apologia of St. John Damscenes' Against those who decry holy images is a must.

I agree with the above and also on this list: http://www.sedevacantist.com/books/  scroll down to almost the bottom, there is a book entitled: The Mystery of the Church by Humbert Clerissac. I have not read it yet, but it seems good and Mr. Lane thinks highly of it.

Denzinger; Predestination (Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange); Providence (Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange); Grace (Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange); [anything by Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange]; Radio Replies Vol. I, II, & III; Introduction to the Devout Life (St. Francis de Sales); Right and Reason (Fr. Austin Fagothey); The Faith of Our Father's (James Cardinal Gibbons); Conspiracy Against God and Man (Fr. Clarence Kelly); Baltimore Catechism.

These are just a few of the works (some for simpler folk, some for complicated folk) that I didn't see mentioned in this thread. If I repeatedly any that were already mentioned, then I apologize in advance.

Yeah, I don't endorse the website and really know nothing about it. I was just posting a link to the piece by Fr. Fenton.

Another good source that I have found is the out of print library at Ite as Thomam:    http://iteadthomam.blogspot.com/p/out-of-print-library-itopl.html

These are delivered via e-mail in PDF format. There is a $3.99 charge for each download, but many of these volumes are hard to find or very expensive to get in a hardcopy.

Once one has a good foundation in the western philosophical tradition, a nice overview can be given from Ott.  Then one can dive into more specific works, depending on area of interest.
IF I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

Mysterium Fidei, do you know if the books on Ite ad Thomam's out-of-print website are translated, or are they in their original languages?

They are in their original languages. I have only purchased English language volumes as I am not yet proficient in Latin.  :-[   Still a work in progress.

A Systematic Study of the Catholic Religion – Fr. Charles Coppins, SJ 
How Christ said the first Mass – Fr. James Meagher, DD   

Both of those would be great options.
