Question ASA105 & ASA107 Classes

I know of a local school which offers both the ASA105 & ASA107 classes via correspondence/instructional DVD. Any opinions on if this would be sufficent instruction? Would I be better to wait for an actual class? Thoughts?

Thanks!!

Steve

Re: ASA105 & ASA107 Classes

If you already have a grasp of navigation, ASA 105 via correspondence is probably a good way to go. ASA 107 not so much, unless you are already comfortable using a sextant.

Re: ASA105 & ASA107 Classes

I had a lot of fun doing the ASA 105 class with other students. I don't think my learning would have been as effective if it was all by myself.

Re: ASA105 & ASA107 Classes

As was said on the 107 class. I took it last year and having an instructor was very helpful. I think it would be nice to have one for the 105 as well, always good to have your questions answered right away.
