    Well, before you build them for clients... you should learn how to build it for yourself.

    Have you ever considered by any chance to read the online documentation of WP?
    That's where you should start... Main Page « WordPress Codex

    If you find the codex a bit unintuitive, and don't mind spending $27, the best overall guide, in terms of layout, organization and ease of access is Digging into WordPress

    I pick up wordpress fairly quickly. Probably because I have HTML, CSS, PHP background already and I learn on my own.

    Best way to learn it's to start building sites with wordpress for yourself. Go for the hands on approach.

    if you come across obstacles do a search on...

    How to add ___________ on wordpress?
    How to edit ___________ on wordpress?
    How to remove __________ on wordpress?

    etc etc.

  • Check out Lynda.com, $25 a month, access unlimited videos on wordpress. TONS of good info, and everything is on video. I personally like video learning versus book learning when it comes to WP. Hope that helps.
