| Thats pretty much normal to noobies driving sticks(no offense, just a dscription). |
Try this, when you shift to second, slowly let go of the clutch while (slowly pressing the gas pedal) accelerating it. When I say slowly, its a lil bit faster than releasing it while your in first gear. Hope this helps.

Control the descent of the rpms from 1st-2nd gear with your right foot. Engageing the clutch at too high or too low an rpm will set you up for more bucking.
So the message here is to be GENTLE with the gas pedal. Even when you are wanting to floor it, do it smoothly and gently.
