I use transistors all over the place in my designs. And
IMXO, the single most useful topic when teaching/studying/learning
electronics is to spend a "lot" of time/effort to get down a complete
understanding of NPN inverter operation - biasing, gain, ac operation,
bandwidth, leakage, coupling, power dissipation, linear versus
nonlinear operation, on and on. Once you really understand how "all"
of these aspects integrate together in the design of a typical circuit,
the rest of electronics is cake.
[BTW, you don't quite get the same level of understanding if
you jump to MOSFETs too soon in the process].
