I'm really interested in taking the Pragmatic Studio Ruby on Rails video training. But would like to know if any of you guys have taken it and what do you think of it. Is it worth 200? Below is a link to the training that I am talking about

I think it's a really good introduction for Rails beginners. But is it worth $200? That depends on your experience and wallet.
Before purchasing, I would recommend you to try Michael Hartl's free railstutorial at http://ruby.railstutorial.org/. If you don't like it or it's to hard for you, then switch to pragmatic studio.
I'm Jack's complete lack of ruby knowledge.

Personally, I think $200 is overpriced. I'm a beginner but I'm finding great free material all over Google. Definitely take a look at http://ruby.railstutorial.org/, from there I used YouTube to build a blog with & without scaffolding which was really good. I then used RailsCasts, StackOverflow and other blogs to help me further.

I plan on taking the Pragmatic Studio Ruby on Rails video training (getting it for myself as a Christmas gift), so I will be able to jump back in and give you my take on it. I took their Ruby video course and was impressed with it. I am definitely a more visual learner and enjoy the video aspect of training. I have worked through an older version of Michael Hartl's tutorial and came away a little confused, so hoping this will help solidify my admittedly "beginner" level of knowledge.

I'm new in this forum, actually new to any forum I should say and would love to actively participate in discussions about Rails.
So, I would like to start by saying that yes, I took the Ruby on Rails 1 from Pragmatic Studio. I also did Ruby on Rails Tutorial by Michael Hartl, studying with Stuk.io and doing the CoderManual course. Oh and by the way I also finished a few courses in Codecademy and did the Lynda Rails 4 Essential Training course.
Now listing all the courses I have taken and am taking at the moment is not an act of gloating, but more so a testament that I want variety in my learning. Hopefully that makes me at least qualified to give my endorsement to the courses I have experience with. I try to take the best out of every provider and hopefully combine them to be specifically my own style of Rails programming.
Yes, $200.00 is not cheap, especially with the exchange rate of AUD to USD but I got my money's worth. I am redoing the course again and will build all the 3 apps, after which I will take the Rails 2 version. I am confident that I can tackle the other complicated courses better when I finish this. Maybe get even more advanced than what the other courses can provide.
Sorry for the length. My endorsement for the course is long overdue.
