I've known some other first timers who did okay too. But many I've seen trying even after having few days of paddling under their belt don't have the balance yet. If they do succeed on the initial climb up they almost certainly flip trying to get their legs into the cockpit. I do advocate learning it very early, but think that first learning the paddle float gives you a way out when you get tired and can be used as a stepping stone for the learning process.
