Some good points above. I was down this journey 4 years back. Here are my ideas

Read Intelligent investor and maybe Phil Fishers book. I would add Joel Gs Little book / Magic Formula and Peter Lynch's two books. That gives you a few approaches.

Then, start with simple businesses. Small businesses. Simple balance sheets. Read the annual report / 10K and few 10Q. See if you can understand the business and the financials. If you need primer on accoun ting, you should do that as well.

Try to write up your thoughts. Maybe start a blog.

Also, i use ValueLine. its great to get to know companies over time.

Read blogs.

Read write ups by analysts on Valuesinvestorsclub (guest access).

Invest a bit if you can and learn from that. Document your investments in a diary or blog or someplace...Do retrospectives..
