I am quite sure that you wont regret it.
This is excellent advice.
If you go to the website: www.dhamma.org
you'll find some introductory material.
Just a few points:
- The manner of instruction is gradual, so you get slightly different instructions each day. It does take some time to develop mental sensitivity before moving onto the main meditation technique of vipassana (vedananupassana).
- The ten-day course is really an (introductory) ten-day course designed for the newbie. On more than one occassion, SN Goenka says This is the kindergarten of Dhamma!
and This path is so long, and you've only taken the first step
