Learning from others is the best way to learn something. At least I think so. Sometimes we dont only look at those good designs, but also the bad ones. So that we will keep in mind that we will not follow them.
Web Pages That Suck is a web that provide bad design examples to the visitors. So that you can learn what are the DOs and DONTs in web design and usability. You may visit and learn from them daily in the sector - Daily Sucker or you can read some of the articles that they distributed.One of the point that they mentioned is quite good. That is the 5 Wheres
