I am beginning with the site, and never knew that the numbers and formulas could be so interesting. I actually learnt the core concepts and was able to relate with the problems given. Great content and learning experience. Look forward to more.

I couldn’t say much more to this course as aside from it being very informative, the explanation and variety of examples are also so relevant that it anyone without a very deep understanding of business will be able to clearly get the message of every chapter. I was surprise that there is such thing like this online and I would love to explore and take additional courses.

The interface was wonderful, though coddling at times. Since I took a high school math course and understand how arithmetic works, the only benefit from this entire course was the four new terms I learned.

I love the format of the course, and that it's straightforward. I feel this is an easy system to use for a beginner. I like that the system interface has a clean, streamlined design and that it looks aesthetically pleasing. I loved that the math involved allows for time to do the calculations without a rush. A free education is always appreciated, especially in this day and age.

I was really pleased with the content and format in which this was taught. Also the UI was fantastic, looks great. As someone who has learned this stuff years ago, this was a good refresher course and in a fraction of the time to learn it.

I am very happy with this course! I learned a lot of information in a very short amount of time that I probably would have never learned otherwise. I was always curious how calculating interest rates over time was applied and now I know. Also, I learned how easy it can be to make money on your money in an investment savings account. I can't thank you enough! :)

These lessons about the time value of money are great. This is a very interesting way to learn as this is very simple and easy to understand. The examples that are provided at the end also help to give the details more context and allows the user to retain the information.

It's a refresher for me because I was a Business major in college. Great refresher and executed flawlessly if you are new to the business basics. Even though I stumbled on a couple of the concepts, I was still able to manage and complete the course with an 86% course grade. Everyone will learn from this course. And the all of this is absolutely free with no strings attached to debt! Just amazing!

I studied finance, so this was pretty breezy. However, I also wish I had this when I studied finance, because it was extremely well-explained and much better than the boring methods I used in university. Looking forward to seeing what the actual program is like!

loved every second of it, this is the future of education! content was straight forward, easy to understand and very concise in its message. I also didn't feel penalized for being wrong, unlike traditional schooling systems, when I was wrong, it felt okay because I knew that with every failure came progress and that makes all the difference in education

Free education that teaches finance equations and terminology is awesome; when combined with the simplicity that they've incorporated into the lessons.

Its awesome. I always thought that videos can explain better. But the alternative to video here at smartly saves time and very effective even more than video lectures.

The mechanism of learning is really great ! and specially for beginners like me who dont know much of the profession :) the matrix match type questions should be more challenging for a clear insight into the topic otherwise overall is really good !

Like the course so far (I'm still in progress). Content seems to be designed both for beginners and people who need some refreshment on their prior knowledge. User interface is a bit too bright and playful to my taste but anyway I'm going to take more courses on Smart.ly platform.

Really good so far, what would make this perfect is a downloadable outline of the lesson after you complete it. And if the certificate we get can be printed and updated to our linkedin profiles.

I have a hard time doing more than one at a time. This is not the case with other learning aides. I believe the addition of sound would be a great option.

The speed is little bit slow. Since most of the fundamentals are already done in school. Otherwise the courses are awesome and add to my skills. The course material classification is also well done. It is easier to understand concepts in small chunks rather than learning all of it together.

I like the interface of how the Time Value of Money course was set up. It was enjoyable to click through and answer questions. I have never taken any finance courses.
