Question about calculating descent

Hi everyone!

I have been playing for a while and I do read up on flight procedures in order to get a realistic experience but the one thing I still have trouble with is calculating my descent. I know there are various factors involved but still, in general how many miles out do start my descent? I usually fly between 20 and 30,000ft depending on the region.
