It's good, as long as you can truly pay attention to watching yourself play the entire time and be honest with yourself. Some people have boredom problems playing, imagine the boredom at watching yourself fold the majority of the time. If you think you can handle it, and have the free time (that you don't want to use playing), it's a good idea and will probably improve your play more than just reviewing stats and key hands (although I'd still utilize the HA sections here). Good luck
