But if you only have two days, a lesson at 8:30 am for two hours will do you right.
Yeah, the key here is the limited time available. Learning on your own is kind of probabilistic in that you may or may not master a key concept quickly. Even if you're naturally athletic, some things can sometimes be sticking points. I'd just go with what is most likely to give you the quickest results -- which as usual is of course the most expensive. TANSTAAFL.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
