booyaa: Ah, I remember starting that (the one by Andrew Ng), it was really nice. Unfortunately, I had to quit when my exams started, but I feel like signing up again for the Sep 15 session.

The math was indeed a little challenging, and I've no idea how advanced it'll be in later chapters. I was thinking about building a simple perceptron; maybe some hands-on practice will help me understand the math better.
