I've gone through training periods where I did no direct arm work and other periods where I did. My arms were a lot bigger when I did direct work in addition to indirect work.

For me:

1. Barbell curls
2. Seated incline curls
3. Reverse curls
4. Lying triceps extensions
5. Overhead DB extensions

Edit to add: sorry, just noticed this was on the Beginner's Forum. I still think that even beginners can benefit from direct arm work (try and stop 'em, anyway), but better results overall would come from spending most of their energy elsewhere.
