Expresso is also a really superb tool.
 
Yes, indeed it is.

The best suggestion I have is to find (or invent) some interesting problems, then play with Expresso to solve them (in as many ways as you can think of).
Having said that, remember that regex is not the universal solution for string processing. There are many cases where regex is not the appropriate tool.
(Remember the old saw "When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail." Don't let regex become your hammer.)

Cheers,
