So, let's say we've got a 1 HD medium-sized spellcaster with Precocious Apprentice feat who's able to cast Alter Self at first character level and has an Aberration type. The Alter Self limits the change to one step on the size chart, caster's type only, as well as "no more than your HD with 5 HD as the cap". What can this spellcaster change himself into that would do more than making him a deadweight?

There is an entire thread devoted to the spell here.
The relevant parts (Aberrations):
You can always take stronger aberrations and weaken them.
Elans are a one HD aberration, which are identical to humans so you turn yourself into what ever race you are and elan/human. I do get the sense you might already be an elan though :)
Stick on a +0LA template such as Unseelie Fey and do change type and thus could change into Fey and use the 1st level spell "Aberrate" to pick use the table shown. At higher levels you gain access to other spells that can change your type to Outsider and Elemental
