Do you know if this will be offered again? I'd sure like to do it, but don't quite have the money just yet...

WOW! I definitely want to do this course, but I didn't quite understand if it is being offered for PSP yet or just PS7. I use PSP9, is the up and coming course on the 8th going to be compatible with PSP?

I've never used CS or PS, so I can't compare, but I love my PSPX2, and we got it super cheap, around $35. My sister searched for OEM versions, which is the same software, but without the big box and the thick manual, and then ordered copies for all the main computers, since the price was so good. I'd been using PSP 8, so I was already familiar with the software, but Diane never used it before. I found the manual at the library for her, and she never even opened it. She was able to figure everything out by just playing around and using the help screens.
