The issue I have is knowing how to get the right settings for the enviroment, I know I could keep doing test shots and play around with the settings that way but is there not a faster way a rule of thumb to use to gauge the settings required?

Generally... no. The best way to learn something is practice. Ansel Adams roughly said "your first 10,000 frames are crap." In the digital age, I'd bump that to 100,000.
So... just get practicing. Post images everywhere and ask for tips. Find photographers who inspire you and follow their blogs/work/books.

Bracket your photos. It helps you to find the perfect exposure. Common thing to do in the days of film.

I really like it, You've cropped it perfectly imo
Looks good in my opinion. Just ask yourself this question: does the picture look like the real life scene? If yes then you did a fine job.
Only thing i can say is get a couple of books about photography, check out pictures of other people on flickr. And most important of all, keep on shooting!
The subject in your photo is underexposed.Read the following PDF to get an idea of how exposure works and essentially how to use spot metering to get good exposure - http://backroom.rend...metering%20.pdf
