Yep, that is correct. Dan Shafer's book is a great place to start. Also, 
  there are video tutorials, some of which you can already download. 
Check the RevOnline button.

You can learn more about the Advanced Learning Pack at:

It's basically more online video tutorials to help you get started.

 From the website:
The Dreamcard Update Pack entitles you to a full year of updates to your 
Dreamcard product. This means you will be able to download and unlock 
every new release of Dreamcard during your license period, giving you 
access to new features, improvements and bug fixes as they happen.

Y'know, last I heard, the online Docs ran about 4000 pages, that's why 
they're so expensive to print and can't be included in the $99 base price.
