G is right on all counts.  I would add that the brain is marvelous at
relating information.  If  you read enough, even with little
understanding, the common information will begin to become coherent and
you will learn.  That said, if you start with a few beginner articles,
and please do the exercises they have, you will learn.  The exercises
are important to lock the information with the potential errors that you
will encounter, and the effort needed to correct them.

Like G, I started a long time ago, from vacuum tubes, and while the
circuits have changed, the elements of design and software have not.
Almost everything I ever learned has benefited me.

Go for it!
