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.

The concepts are clearly explained and reinforced by the examples. The interface is user friendly and enhances the learning process. This is the most detailed and best explanation of TVM concepts that I have had the pleasure of learning. Thank you very much.

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 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 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

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.
