Yea I agree with you regarding it being a case by case basis. I'm more of a
"tactile kenetic learner" or one that needs to actually experience things
first hand to understand them(at least that's what they told me when i was
failing out of grade school ;).

I guess what I should have asked is if people have had any experience with
these online training courses. From what I know about these guy's I think
they would do OK in a structured environment, but what I *don't* know is if
these courses are just online tutorials that cost money.
