Not necessarily an expert. Rails will force you to use some of Ruby's features more than others, so you will most likely re-learn them while learning Rails should you forget how they work. The Ruby part of Rails is rather easy - the challenge lies in proper understanding of the framework. Knowing some tricks that make the Ruby code concise will definitely help.

I would suggest doing Ruby Basics and Foundations on Treehouse and maybe reinforce your understanding through Codecademy. This should be enough to start doing Rails.

Thanks man,I will start rails after completing those ruby course,I already completed few ;-)
