I need to up my UI/UX skill

I am nearly finished my 2 year software engineering schooling and I was never taught how to go about designing a UI or UX. Id like to know what resources I should read or books i should check out on this subject, because, I suck at this.

No idea for books. But working in data entry will familiarize you with efficient and inefficient systems. More importantly, you as a developer will be able to see what the developers had in mind vs how the users actually use those systems. I know, it’s probably best to get a dev job as soon as possible. But if you find yourself needing some scratch, consider data entry.
