    To each their own - I was able to (finally) master the concepts with
    just self-study alone (and have never had any "formal" classroom celnav
    training) - which might be the reason for our differing perceptions on
    this particular issue.

    On that we can agree...

    I disagree - reading the article through the eyes of a rank beginner I
    would have been totally put off and figured the subject was way too
    complicated for mere mortals like me to even dream of ever
    comprehending.

    The technique in the article is quite valid, however I would question
    its viability for someone without any prior background in celnav.
