True enough. I have booked myself into courses at times, only because it would force me to spend the time immersed in the new technology, and would guarantee that I had the time to do it justice. The courses were usually not nearly worth the money paid (re: the instructor, the materials, the curriculum, etc.), but just spending the time concentrating on the subject mattere meant that I got a lot of value from the "training", albeit in a rather roundabout way.
