I say just jump into it and slowly work at it. Don't be overly ambitious and trying to create something really amazing. Start small and use reference images, Blender will allow you to set background images to see as you model. I'm also currently taking a college course that is an introduction to Blender, I could send you some of the practices/homework we have, if you're interested.
