[racket] Request for guidance

I found "Picturing Programs" by Stephen Bloch to be an excellent
introduction to Racket, even better than the htdp docs.

Subject: [racket] Request for guidance


I am a novice programmer - actually a novice learner - and this group and
2HTDP have been invaluable resources for me - really inspirational.


Through this group I learned about the launch of Realm of Racket.  I also
noted the advice by Matthias about the sequence to follow in learning (BSL.
ISL, ASL, racket).


I am in the first third of HTDP/2.  


What I want to know is should I start with Realm of Racket too?  I have
obtained it and seems fun and has Matthias's  name - as a guarantor of
quality - on it.  Or should I complete HTDP and if I do so, will not need to
go through Realm of Racket at all?  Or should I do Realm of Racket first and
then HTDP?


Please give me an opinion.  I know Matthias follows posts and will be very
grateful for his advice.
