Best course of action?

Where is the best place to get advice on how to efficiently get through QBO training?  I am a 28 year IT employee now looking to use my old Accounting degree and skills to learn how to use QBO.  I learn software fast by using it and my accounting skills are still pretty viable, definitely in bookkeeping where I created my own small accounting system for myself in WP and MYSQL.


Give that advanced set of details, I am getting VERY frustrated with Donna Kay's QBO "Computer Accounting with QBO".  It looks great other than the very fragile pages, but it seems there are a lot of inconsistent instructions with the online fake company.  I know QBO changes, but I am going so slow that I feel like just reading it all, take the test and find out even if I end up failing and wasting the money.  It will take forever to read and use.


Am I sound lost, or ignorant?  Is there anyone if QB with some similar issues?  It is hard to find a proper "guidance counselor".  I do not seek resolution more than just some hints about what I think I can do.  Perhaps
