I either own the codex or my friend does so i have access to all of them. One of the best ways i found is occasional they do a tactics article for an army in WD, reading these can give a great insight into how an army works.
You could ask the others at your club if you could take a look in their codex. I'm sure they wouldn't mind you reading it. (Unless you're about to play them )
There was a thread here in General a while ago where they talked about temporarily trading army with your freind and play eachother using your freind's army. Sounded like a great way to familiarize yourself with another race aswell.
Well I do buy the codeses of my foes as they are released. I also write up armylists for possible forces so I know what to expect.....(this quite often leads to buying the army in question......darn) making particular note of weapons that are of concern for my army. I also add the weapon stats to a form which I attach to all my armylist printouts.
Obviously the best way to learn is to play against the foe.....and, if you can, swap armies for a game or two. This gives you seriouse aprsiation for the strengths of your foe and lets you study what should be prioratised.

I ask questions and post topics here at LO. I find there are enough knowledgable people to help prepare me somewhat for the possabilities, or I just learn the hard way, at the table during the battle! It can actually be fun to be surprised by what some units do. And then figuring out on the fly how do deal with them!
I have never even seen the Ogre Kingdoms army book, and yet I know most things about them, except some points costs. So I learn from forums mostly, but I also read my friends' army books.
My friend buys all he codices so i just use him as info..........either that or I play against the other armies.

I have been known to go down to my GW and browse through the army books on display :shifty: They have never stopped me in the past and that is where I find out the most, and by playing of course, just reading an army book will not give you the realisation of playing against them.
In the end there is only war.
Basically by playing them and picking up stuff on these here forums.
