Have you checked out some of the free training videos on the Sony creative site? Here is a link. There is one on the color scopes. Not necessarily for version 12 but most still applies.
To be not too technical, skip theoritical details (books plenty to read). Since you are practical and probably mostly interested to make film, keep to following line of process:
1) check exposure (balance light / dark)
2) check saturation (do not overdrive)
3) check color (do only what need to be done)
Just stay within the lines, succes
