Questions about how to get from CDG airport to Anvers Station

Hi! I am going to be visiting Paris soon and have a few questions in regards to travel. I am not use to traveling by bus, metro, or any form of train so I want to make sure I know what to do and where I am going. I fly into CDG airport and my destination is Anvers Station. I believe I have to take the RER B to Gare du Nord and then switch to the Metro to get to Anvers. Is the transition simple in getting off the RER B and onto the Metro? Also, once I get on the Metro are any stops at any stations that I have to get off and then get on to reach Anvers station? Is that a simple and easy process? I am planning on purchasing a Carnet ticket, since I will only be in Paris for two days. Does that sound like a good ticket to purchase?

I appreciate any help that could be given. Thanks.

If you do not have too much luggage, the best solution is to take RER B to Gare du Nord as you stated, then take the metro to Anvers. In Gare du Nord, check and find the connection (Correspondance) toward line 2. You will then walk in a fairly long corridor and arrive in "La Chapelle" metro station. Take the direction of "Porte Dauphine" and you arrive in Anvers after 2 or 3 stations.

Concerning the tickets, the one you buy in CDG is valid until you exit the RER + metro system, i.e. you do not need to buy a second one in Gare du Nord. For your 2 days in Paris a carnet (a set of 10 individual tickets) is a good solution

To save some walking at Gare du Nord, try to determine which end is the back of the train at CDG and sit there. The connection to metro line 2 at La Chapelle is at the end of the train.

There are escalators after the long corridor, then a flight of about 12 steps and then more escalators to get up to the elevated La Chapelle station.
