Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I just bought this car and I drove it home from
my mechanic and now it won't start. I've replaced
the battery, starter, and starter solenoid. When I go
to start it I here one click and nothing happens, I've
tried bypassing the solenoid and jumping it still
nothing.

Well I'm trying to do it myself so I can not only cut costs but also learn my own car otherwise I shouldn't bother owning it. is there a way that I can easily find this short? Because I'm updating the electrical and mechanical of the car however restoring the body.
