I need clarification about Bell state Measurements

The four bell states are

1: (|00>+|11>)(2)^-0.5
2: (|00>-|11>)(2)^-0.5
3: (|01>+|10>)(2)^-0.5
4: (|01>-|10>)(2)^-0.5

I'm looking at super dense coding and the way i thought of it at first was that if a measurement of the first qubit was made then if we consider the first bell state (1) if 0 is the value obtained then the system if forced into the state |00> so that measurement of the second qubit yields 0 with certainty..

Now take (2) if we measure the first qubit and we get 0 then apparently measurement of the 2nd qubit yields 1 with certainty.. So my way of thinking isn't correct lol

Can someone clarify?

Seems to me you are really into QIT...

Check out this site of John Preskill. All the answers are in the links to lecture notes, they are highly recommended. I studied quantum info theory from these lectures at college...
