A)You can take the courses simultaneously, but I don't recommend it.  Most of
the people that have tried to take both courses simultaneously usually have to
drop out of NC151 and retake it when it is offered next.  There is just too
much material to cover in just six weeks.

B)Even if you were an experienced Stata user I would recommend that you take
both NC101 and NC151.  Both courses flow together so you might be lost if you
just took NC151.  Plus NC101 contains a lot of great information and tips on
working with Stata.

Also, I wanted to tell you that if you take NC101 and you don't want to wait to
take the next offering of NC151 in the fall you can sign up for NetCourse 151

NetCourse 151 Now has the same material as the normal NetCourse, but you can
take it whenever you want, you have longer to finish the course, and you have
your own instructor to help you through the course.

StataCorp will be offering sessions of NC-101, NC-151, and NC-461 starting
June 15th. The NetCourses are available on the Internet using a web-based
system to deliver lectures, problem sets, and solutions. Course participants and Stata course leaders interact through a bulletin board to
discuss the course and to ask and answer questions.
Kevin, I'm a semi-newbie to Stata ... used it about 10 years ago and don't
even know which version it was, and have recently started a position
requiring me to use Stata 9.
I'm interested in the NetCourses, but I'm not sure which to participate in.
I believe I'm somewhere between/within NC-101 and NC-151, and would benefit
from portions of both of those courses. So my questions are:

a. Is it possible, permissible, and appropriate to take NC-101 and NC-151
b. If not, is NC-151 basic enough that a semi-newbie will be able to follow
along? (yes, I'm aware that you can't know my personal familiarity level
with the program ... I'm just soliciting general opinions).
