Amazing way of learning. I totally like the content and how it is presented to the student. I would love to have a pdf or printout to have these infos afterwards as well and don't need to write everything down on my own. That would help my learning process a lot.

Very well thought out course. Extremely important for beginners to understand the time value of money and make some investment decisions based on the net present value.

The course was great. The course content is very user friendly, flexible and very useful. I found the experience that I had with the two chapters that I studied very easy to learn. I really enjoyed the experience. The training material is important and vital for any business. It is an appropriate way to learn and offers the participant and opportunity to review the lesson by moving back to the previous page and retake the lessons. Smartly offers a training portfolio that is unique and convenient for a busy life style. One can easily learn, work and continue with normal life. I thoroughly learning on the go and filled in travel time with learning. I also managed to learn more concepts on the time value of money more that any class that I had ever taken. I needed support and when I reached out the turnaround time to getting the response was impressive.

Excellent content! Very clear.I struggled for many years to study the practical use of NPV. Now I understand everything very clearly. In investments, this is a very scientific approach. Both courses have been developed such a way even a new comer to the field would understand these concepts easily.

Really enjoyed this! It was so much Fun, the exercises and lessons are set up interactive and makes it so more interesting! Loved to visit the timelines, present and future value as well as making informed decisions with regards to business decisions. It does visit previous experience and reinforced the knowledge base as well as brought back facts that were sadly forgotten. Well done with the compilation of this course. Looking forward to so much more from your company. Congratulations on a job well done.

I love it it makes financing way more understandable. When I took financing in college it was so confusing and too much info crammed at once. I look forward to seeing more from the course. I have no complaints at this point in the course. Hopefully I'm accepted so I can continue my education.

I wish I had learned everything I know the exact same way Smartly is delivering content. I already feel better just knowing I can understand something that always seemed complicated to me, because it's not!

The information is presented cumulatively, digestibly, and logically with reviews of past lessons opening up each successive lesson. This is an effective way to present information in a way that anyone can understand and apply in the real world. I'm looking forward to learning more through Smartly.

Explains the basics clearly, I do think it would be interesting to add a more advanced section at the end as an additional challenge. I particularly enjoyed the case study approach of Chapter 2 Lesson 5.
