I think the first and most important thing is the experience of the game, when you play a lot and get a lot of situations to study, when you play correctly, when you don't. There are a lot of opponents and it's impossible to study each one, you have to be able to find weaknesses during the tournament. Try to play from yourself style and game plan. If you have collected a bankroll well in a year of playing, then you know and understand how to play. Take your time, gradually you will get a good level of play for yourself.

Buy some of the top poker e books and put them on your phone. E books are only a few dollars on amazon and you can read them in your spare time when you got a few minutes during your day.

Utilise the various materials on cardschat, get your hands on poker strategy books (the more the merrier), watch videos on YouTube and things of this nature.

Be selective with your source material and work through the various concepts/tactics and then start practicing/implementing them in your play.

Posts spots/hands in the hand analysis sections of cardschat to get feedback on what you're doing.

Bear in mind that studying/learning poker is a constant process of refinement rather than something we ever master, achieve or 'complete'.

Even top pros spend time in the lab, studying, using solvers and the suchlike.

So study short stack play (< 40BB) - you need to master 40BB, 20-25BB, and 10BB, 5BB - focus on when to call - shoving too loose or too tight is usually a small mistake; calling too tight or too wide is a disaster; and study ICM. For ICM study especially bubble play (money bubble and final table bubble) and final table play. You will often spend a large percentage of the tournament at 20BB.

Most of the shove/call a shove can be learned from Snapshove (subscription) or Preflop+ (free version has both shoves and calls, but subscription is worthwhile), for ICM - ICMizer is a common recommendation (It is a subscription to use the quiz based trainer).

2+2 Publishing has a whole library of Hold "em books, along with studies of specific hands. My favorite is "Harrington on Hold 'em." I've learned a lot here.
