The previous posts have it right search for tutorials, practice, read a book, practice. If you want a more personal way to learn check out taking a class at a local college as continuing ed (or credit if you want to get a education in this field) these classes are cheap usually 70-100 bucks a course at a comunity college. Also with taking a class you get the advantage of learning at least a little of how to really edit not simply how use software. The software is the easy part the hard part is knowing where and why to make a cut, when to use a dissolve and why to not use all of those 100+ transitions that show up in your software. Also read "In the Blink of an Eye" by Walter Murch. It is a great book on editing and a must for any editor. Plus its only like 3-4 bucks on ebay.
