    Knowledge is power, the more info you can get the better off you'll be. I'd say go for it (if it's not too expensive). Though, there are quite a few free courses available.

    A class in IM is like taking a class on riding a bike.

    It isn't worth shit compared to trying it and failing and going from there.

    Don't mind the harsh words, i'm just saying too much knowledge and no action is worth nothing :)

    College teaches you what you can't do, not what you can do. From a guy that has two BS degrees and a Masters. Unless you are driven to begin with and have a no prisoners attitude, teaching a person what they can't do takes the creativity out of a person. College, even entrepreneur classes, teach a person to work for others and not themselves. College is a hustle and a con game in which the education establishment uses propaganda to inform you that you will be successful only with their approved curriculum. Funny too, that curriculum, and the requirements vary from college to college.

    Think about it, Bill gates dropped out of College to start Microsoft. Thomas Edison finished his High School studies in the caboose of a train while working as a porter and never did have a high school diploma.

    You can learn more, and faster on your own. More importantly, you can learn what you can do rather than what you cannot do; this is important because you will find out soon enough what you cannot do.

    Excellent!! Well put!!

    It is not bad to learn more about as I am also taking a class on it, but most of that stuff can be found on the net and learns through trials and tribulations.
