Bought a couple of courses on Udemy, most are not very in depth, but the discussion boards are pretty nice. i don't know about lynda. instructors there seem more professional ? WHat do you think of lynda.com? @ubersnuggy
The tutorials are nice and take you step by step pretty well, but I don't remember watching many general tutorials, just certain techniques and tricks.
I know people sell accs for pretty cheap. If you can pick one up cheap enough get it.
