I'm pretty bad with finance and financial terms and this is really straightforward. It's repetitive enough to make things stick in your mind. I've learned more in the last 20 mins than in 5 years of GCSEs.

Loved it. Clear, concise and easy, even for a beginner. I feel like I've learned useful concepts in a structured and organised way. I now feel confident in the topic. The interface is very neat. I would have liked to have more exercises though.

I love the way the course material is presented! Very approachable and easy to digest. Plus, the ability to skip forward once you grasp the concept is helpful for those who find the concepts elementary.

It is very clear. It is also very good to emphasize the important concepts multiple times so that you will be alert and will remember them. Interface is simple and good. But need to fill in the answers to text box slowly because the text box may miss my typing sometimes.

Really enjoyed the content. Without a background in business, it was very useful information to learn. It was not too easy while being concise and practical. I really did NOT like that the courses keep track of how much time it takes for you to complete them. I frequently stopped to take notes because that is an effective way for me to learn and it makes it seem like it took me much longer than is expected to complete the course. The time keeping is very distracting and totally unnecessary. Overall, very interesting and a fun and effective way to learn.

Although this topic was covered in an economics course I took as a requirement for my master of science in Information Technology degree, I haven't had to think about it in years so I basically had to relearn it. This format of covering one concept at a time and building up made it so much easier than when I taught it to myself from my textbook the first time. It took a topic that was actually quite boring and made it feel like a fun game.

Extremely interesting to dive into financial calculations. It started easy and at the end it was a little challenging when you were not so deep into mathematics before.

This style of teaching covers one concept at a time which makes learning the process much easier than having to remember multiple concepts prior to one exam review. A great way to learn!

Beautifully organized, clear material that keeps you engaged. The interface is great, you are trying not to miss a single change or interaction as you go. When you set yourself a goal to explain something so that even a child would understand, this is what you should aim for.

Loved it. I've previously studied this topic so for me it was a refresher, but with clear & easily digested concepts. Bite size chunks that are easy to understand and squeeze into a busy day. Recommended.
