Don't bother. Take an automotive course at your local college, and get into a shop or workplace. I know a couple people at some shops around town, and even the Mazda/Subaru dealership I work at would rather pick someone up thats got a little real time experience in the shop, than someone that's fresh out of tech school with his head spinning high. Just their view. I've had friends go and learn nothing, but one has learned some.
