It was fast, clear and very useful. I have refreshed what I already knew, and I like the format, it is easy to understand and to remember, because visualising works on 150 percent for me. Thank you!

Great course to take to get an introductory understanding of money flow. The lesson were easy to follow, especially if you are a visual learner. I suggest everyone to take this free course if they are interested in studying business or starting their own.

Very straight forward, no tricks, and fun to do. Good refresher to get the brain warmed up. I’ve not enjoyed learning this much for a while. Modules are just the right length to do between other tasks.

A fun and easy intro into the time value of money. It was a little bit easy but I guess that was the point at this time. The animations are incredible.

These Courses are Incredible. They were very easy for me but for someone that hasn't had the expertise, it guides anyone through the simple process of compounding, PV, FV and Etc.

Well laid out with simple, easy to understand instructions. Great for someone with limited knowledge of the material. I appreciated the option to do extra work or move forward if I "got it".

Clear concise and effective. If only all schools can modernize and deliver knowledge this way. Still i'd say there are benefits to having a classroom environment with lecturers providing context and personal examples for added emphasis + networking :)

Very useful and educative. Studying was fun and it's making me want to start schooling again. I have a finance background but this makes it more clear and the understanding is easy. I also like the fact that you could go back for verification and really graphs it before moving forward. They made it easy for people at every level. It's step by steps, not rigid at all. It's definitely one of the best online causes i have ever embark on.

The course builds up on knowledge and principles to aid easy understanding and graps; personally, I consolidated my knowledge on the concept of "Time Value of Money" beyond just a simple formular, to a better, practical application. And on the medium of delivery, it's quite interactive; I enjoyed my first class. Well done, Smartly!

I've been afraid of numbers and formulas my whole life. I took a chance with this course and I don't regret it - I actually fared well and it's making me see that pedagogy is paramount when it comes to making people understand math. How Smartly teaches suits me and I'd recommend it to anyone.

I can't believe this exists online for free. This is more intuitive, and faster-paced than I've ever seen online. It's visually easy to see/use and it's fun. I found myself losing time doing problems and not really thinking about the fact that I was learning.

This is so much more accessible than the poorly written textbooks I used to read! The material is clear and well explained. The interactivity means any mistakes made are explained clearly such that you are quickly put to right. And the course takes you through the thinking incrementally rather than dumping all the info on you.
