Start from part one and don't move from one section to the next until you understand the one you're looking at. Most theory is built upon some basic concepts and elabourated from there so make sure you build a solid foundation.

best answer - looking at a load of patterns isn't actually going to teach you much of anything

I recommend that you start with Pentatonic scales. They're used in almost every style of music. The patterns are easy to memorize. Once you have them down, diatonic scales, (major, minor and the modes), will be easy because you're only adding two notes.

What I usually do with my students is give them some basic rock/blues chord progressions and have them start out with practicing minor pentatonic scales over them from the root positions. It's easy to visualize and they catch on fast. It's easy to sound decent almost immediately so it encourages them more. From there you can try other scales and get a good feel for the different sounds each scale produces.

From there you can try finger exercises to run the scales back and forth with diferent patterns and speed.
