However, I don't want to rely on 2 hour classes to learn anything. It would be appreciated if you could point me to some good Python guides.

The official documentation is of course a good starting point: http://www.python.org/doc/

In particular, the tutorial should be pretty useful for learning from scratch: http://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/

I see this Google tutorial recommended a fair bit: https://developers.google.com/edu/python/

There's also Codecademy, although it can be a bit hit and miss: http://www.codecademy.com/tracks/python

Wow, that's one dedicated university. Even the ATMs give lessons!

I laughed really hard.

And thanks luigi. I'm on my phone right now and can't quote more than two posts.

This is how I picked up Python personally:

Well structured and the author encourages you to go do your own thing on a consistent basis.

Class notes, slides, textbook, programming projects. The other resources supplied by your class for use outside of class.

I don't know what level you're at, but if this is beyond a 2000 level course, the language is largely irrelevant. In my Data Structures class we almost no code in class, and have very little on quizzes and tests. It's all conceptual.

This looks like a decent resource that someone else posted:

I'm just wondering why it takes 28 lessons to get to booleans, ifs, and loops.

Every programming class I've ever taken basically assumes you have no knowledge whatsoever and they'll spend 3 or 4 weeks to get to basic constructs like conditionals and loops.

You're much better off reading ahead in the book and doing it yourself.
Or check online tutorials. Python's pretty damn easy from what I've done with it.

I think this is the best guide to python.

It covers everything really and even contains a short video covering history of the content within.

Videoception.
