how do i learn about managing finances?

This sounds ridiculous but I know pretty much nothing about personal finances and banking. My parents have managed all that for me up to now, and all I know is basically how to login to my account and transfer funds. I dont know anything about banking terms, or even what interest is accumulating on my credit-line etc. I know I'm not the only one in this predicament and a lot of young punjabi women don't get taught this. I always kind of thought maybe after I'd get married my husband will manage the money and now I'm realizing I need to learn this for myself. Where do I start? When I go to the bank i have no idea what they are talking about. Up till now I just signed what my parents told me to sign (I realize how horrible that sounds but its true!). I have a lot owing due to my schooling.
