I'd recommend it as well.  I took the first 2 parts with Mark Street 
(frequent list contibutor), but then they cancelled the course before I 
could take the 3rd part.  I then (gasp) got a job instead.  I'd still 
consider taking that 3rd part if it's offered again (and if I have the 
time in my present life).

It's true that you could learn much of the material on your own, but I 
found that while I already knew a lot of the basics going in, a lot of 
the classwork and assignments reinforced that knowledge and a good 
portion of it was stuff I probably wouldn't have learned without the 
class.  By that I mean stuff that I  wouldn't have come across in my own 
fooling around unless I forced myself to learn it.
