That definitely sums up what I meant.Much of the time, practice is much more useful than theory. Some of the most highly regarded professionals in this industry don't neccessarily have paper qualifications, though there is a growing trend towards certifying people. I partially agree with Phantom. Practice is in my opinion still worth more than theory, but it is important to understand at least the basics of the theory, for it will greatly help the practice. Hope that makes sense.
