Summer Programming class

Do you guys think it would be a wise choice to take an into to programming class online if you've never had experience with it before?

I'm going to transfer to a state university next year, but I need a few basic programming classes first. The college I'm at right now doesn't offer the ones I need, but I just got the opportunity to take CS 115 Intro to Computer Programming online, over summer.

I'm good with computers as far as literacy goes. I can use Word, Excel, Spreadsheet, etc. - just never had any programmimg experience.

Please let me know what you think. Thanks.

I think that if you haven't ever programmed before, taking a course over the summer (rather than spring-fall or not at all) is a good idea.
