I had posts this in my "Hello" thread but i think its better suited here.

Last night my best friend and I did 2 readings following the 15 card spread in the manual included in the deck.
My reading was quite great.
I asked "Will continuing working with magick be fruitful?"
He drew me these cards

-Center-
9 of Wands
-Details of my Question-
4 of Swords | The Fool
-Possible alternate path. in this case stopping-
King of Cups | 7 of Pentacles | 8 of Cups
-Natural flow. Continuing my studies-
3 of Swords | Queen of Wands | Temperance
-Assisting me in my decision-
9 of Pentacles | Ace of Pentacles | King of Wands
-Uncontrollable. Must adapt too-
4 of Pentacles | King of Swords | Prince of Wands

I was able to get the answer to my question - continue my study because it will bring me enlightenment, but I will have to confront my family (mother in particular) which i have been worried about recently (both magick and with college things) which may lead to tears but ultimately temperance.
If I stop, I will gain money (perhaps material things), and continue just following my college education and not spiritually developing, but i will feel empty and pretty bad.
The only problem I have interpreting are the bottom 2 parts.
The bottom left i interpreted into - Just following my money/material goals will leave me empty.
The bottom right i interpreted into - Money/Material things won't be an issue, its inevitable I will find a decent job and to not worry about material things as much.

Would this sound like a good reading or am I off?

I don't use tarotsoften so their meaning are not as clear without my book, but my advice to you is use cards as a guide not how the future will be determined.

It's difficult to comment without knowing a few more details; the deck in question, the particular spread you used, and whether you give opportunity for your cards to be reversed or not. Tarot isn't an exact art and, in my experience, meanings change quite dramatically between different decks.

Keep in mind that the beauty of Tarot is the ability to weave inspiration as to the message coming through by dissecting the cards as a whole; think of them a bit like a spider web, with each card an individual thread which makes up a bigger picture. Before replying with the details above, I recommend laying out the cards you got in the spread you used and just reflect on them. Not only will it allow you to get used to the cards, but you may be able to glean more information. Be careful to to take into consideration the numbers of the cards which are coming up, what royals, and what the elemental make up is of the spread, i.e. how many pentacles, cups, swords and rods there are.

I think what you have so far as a reading is good, though! Practice, practice, practice.
