this is not an experts judgement, so here are my two cents to this more or less "unprecise" question - you didn't say, what you want to do with bitcoin (use case):

*short term: try a mobile (SPV) wallet or the bitcoin-QT, play some faucets, and start understanding the wording around bitcoin. Very little ressources required, only little knowledge required (reading some forums and bitcoin.org, of course).

*mid term: buy your bitcoins on an exchange or other provider (here in Switzerland we have the railway service - every of their terminals allows you to buy bitcoins). Get prepared to understand the security model of bitcoin - you are your own bank! You don't need special skills, just a good financial understanding.

*long term: develop in any language a trx analyzer or similiar, to understand the logic (and pitfalls) of the environment. This requires programming skills, and a developper machine...
