Default What type of CMS would you recommend?

I'm working on a new site. It's an online xhtml + css course. I'll be releasing it in parts. Everytime I finish a chapter it will be published on the website. I'm not sure what type of CMS I will use, or if I want to use a CMS at all. I could write a simple script myself too.
I hope to get some suggestions, maybe from people who made similar sites with a tutorial, course or articles.

I have. Initially I wanted to add I line of text saying that wordpress does not fullfill all my needs. It's too blog-like. However, I am thinking of making a custom script for the course and maybe something like wordpress for additional articles and news items.

Textpattern might be an option if you are after something simple.

Etomite is my favourite lightweight CMS though - http://www.etomite.org

I suggest you check out http://moodle.org/ its an open source course management system. Its meant for online learning courses and is something that would fit your needs perfectly.

Wordpress is my nightmare right now (I seem to be quite limited with it )

I am still using Etomite in many sites. It's a nice simple CMS and I can create my layout from zero and then place the snippets of the CMS
