Actually, these courses can be beneficial. We do some search engine positioning for clients all over the world and found that particular course helpful with a couple of the engines. However, I would suggest you do a few things before you pay the money they want for the course. 1) get the keyword live program at analogx.com 2) get a good doorway page program like positionweaver.com 3) get a good search engine position software like topdog.com or webposition.com. 4)Go to searchenginewatch.com and read up 5) go to wordspot.com and get the free report. if you can do all these things and still want to take the course, you may get your moneys worth. If not, I can assure you there is no fairy dust that the course can sprinkle on you to make it happen! :-) good luck!
