This is great! I took calculus-based economics and statistics at U of Chicago many years ago and had to learn this some of this material for that program. I had forgotten some of it and the way you just re-taught it to me was so much easier than when I learned it years ago. Congrats on a great format! I hope to do the full MBA.

This active learning method is really something. So much better than even some of the best education money can buy in this country! Personally, I'm money-conscious and fairly good with numbers, but I didn't know any of the jargon. Smartly explained all of it in a simple, easy-to-understand format without being patronizing. Awesome experience.

This is fantastic! Compounding and discounting can be a difficult concept for many students to grasp (take this from someone who has taught both in math), and this introduces it with patience and encouragement in clear and concise examples. Really well done!

Very well-designed course, worth taking for anyone interested in the subject (or in online class design!). Could've used a real-world example or two, rather than toy examples, but I understand the writers' reluctance to bring in something too complex.

I have greatly enjoyed the lessons thus far, very engaging, easy to understand format, crisp visuals and animations. On the whole not much to critique, and it's accessibility is definitely a strong point. If my classes in college were this smooth and purely interesting, I wouldn't have graduated, just stayed in class. Ok, slight exaggeration there, but seriously, try this system out and see how nicely the lessons are packaged together. One thing I have noticed so far is that the sounds are actually a little distracting, or at the very least repetitive. This might be a little too persnickety, but I'd love it if you included variance in sounds, such as more celebratory cheers when you complete a lesson section. Another possibility would be changing the sounds based on the questions themselves, though this could be too time intensive. Anyways, incredible tool overall and awesome explanation of cash flows!

Excellent work both content and provider. Lessons are awesome. Very very conducive for learning. Everyone will be benefited for this lesson. While I was studying the lessons, I feel I was in game. I was just spellbound. The lessons engaged me all time because of its quiz and real life mini examples/case fashion. In fact, You learn all the matter with enjoying a lot, but you do not perceive you are learning.

Kudos to the editorial staff for the Interactive content, which, of course, is far more effective than videos, audios, or text alone or interpolated. I would love to download some of the learning from the course to my computer, provided it's packaged in the proper format. Back in 1995, the 'De Facto' Microsoft format was .chm (compressed html), also used for Microsoft Help Files. Compressed html let's you interpolate animations, videos, audios, and text through all your content. It seems to have fallen out of favor to .pdf because .pdf is easily scanned even though it is bulky, inanimate, and impossible to manipulate. I would encourage the use of .chm for all learning material. It had been used for Microsoft Help Files for a long while, but in 1995 the Encarta Dictionary and most likely even the subsequent encyclopedias were published in this format. There were very handy .chm compilers available, back in the late...

There were very handy .chm compilers available, back in the late '80s and early '90s, that let you compile .html into chm. ============================================ I have never come across Android ,iOS and Windows apps or marketing offers of any value, so I was very skeptical, and wouldn't have even bothered to register if I wasn't waiting for download to complete and didn't have anything to do in the meanwhile. I have been so disgusted with worthless offers and apps that I would usually block the sites, but this to my pleasant surprise turned out to be even better than what I would expect from formal professional course. I'm giving it 5 stars because it pays attention to small little details like the subscripts for PV which doesn't have a subscript because it is always for the year-zero, and C (capital) which has a subscript of 0 when calculating future values and a subscript equal to the number of years when calculating a present value. It also clarifies that "r" is a return, not an interest percentage, so a decimal value, and that the exponent is also equal to the compounding or discounting period because the periods are marked at the end of each year and you have the same value multiplying (compounding) or dividing (discounting) the earlier value. It also helped establish the difference between discounting and compounding, how we could tell from problems if we needed to compound or discount, and why one was a multiplication and the other a division. Aside from that, examples that forensically looked at calculations and asked you to ascertain what the periods and interest rates were helped you look at the problems from every possible angle and for each possible scenario for a complete comprehension of the underlying concepts. This is a 5-star course because there is nothing that has been left to the imagination and nothing that needs further elaboration.

Basic, but very good. Most text books won't pay attention to the subscripts for the present value which doesn't need a subscript since all values are discounted to time zero, but since the cash flows are progressive, they do need a subscript. Since future values are calculated to progressive values in the future, both the subscripts for the future values and the initial capital changes because the inflows even progress across the years.

This is a great skill and I will be back to reinforce my knowledge in the future. I don't deal a lot with finance at work, but have always been interested in it. I believe that interest will be compounding now that I have this resource. :)

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.
