How to learn the different types of rock?

I would like to be able to point to a piece of rock and say that is rock type *such and such*. I have tried learning but it literally seems like an endless list of types and sub types and the pictures don’t really seem to help me. Short of a person taking me out and physically handing me rock specimens, is there any easy way to self learn the different types?
