Where to learn small engine repair?

I am looking to learn small engine repair and maybe starting my own side business eventually. Any suggestions on cheap repair books or DVDs or maybe free training online? I know pennfoster and sci have training courses available but they are rather expensive. I found a free small engine repair course at eVoc Learning but should be I concentrating more on repairing engines in my garage with a good repair book while getting some repair practice more than anything else?

    I took ICS many years ago which is now Penn foster I believe. Looks like Evoc is offering just a free lesson then you have to pay for the course if you continue.
    Most repair books are very helpful but some of them require that you know certain info already.

    Lots of very good YouTube videos, I enjoy watching Taryls videos, donyboys are also good. Forums are also helpful. Just be careful on some advice given on both, some is good and some is junk.
    However nothing is going to be better than hands on experience, you will learn a lot in the process.

    Okay, thanks for the pointers. I'll check out the You Tube videos you mentioned Mike.
