I think a better use of your time would be learning the various focus and metering modes your camera offers. Between this, shooting in raw and learning some basic post-processing, you will get the results you're after a lot faster.

Sorry, but I do not fully agree.

There are many different ways to approach photography.

Learning to shoot manual IMHO is a great way to lock down the exposure triangle and really work out the effects of ISO vs Aperture vs Shutter Speed.

By going manual . . . if you don't nail it . . . the camera is not there to save you . . . the image doesn't turn out. It's kinda like getting your hands slapped! LOL. Hurts . . . but you might remember more from the failure than the camera saving you IMHO . . .

If you figure out the exposure triangle inside and out . . . understanding all the metering modes become a breeze.

That's what I had to go through on my dad's Pentax SV.
