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.
