This is a very fun and clear methodology to learn. Nice to be here learning and refreshing some concepts that were already cover with dust. This first approach to SMARTLY methodology really motivates to continue..

The concept of PV, FV, and NPV has explained very well. I understand fully without any stress. It became my skill which can be used instantly by its well-designed curriculum.

I love the fact that you can set your own pace, do extra work if you want and do it all at a convenient time. It is really easy to navigate and the learning process is super easy.

Already knew all the concepts from university but it was a fun reminder for the time it took to refresh on almost a whole course. Although a bit tidious. Most of the questions were the same 2 equations over and over. But that's an elementary level course.

Very easy going. Way better taught that at university! I had a hard time grabbing these concepts at the U. I wish it would have been as easy as in here.

Loving this way of learning: very tangible, related to clear examples, with application and hand-on exercises. Makes learning fun, fast and almost effortless. Especially good for me who always need to do many exercises to get a grip on maths!

So far I have noticed a clever concept of transmitting knowledge. A similar way to the Rosetta Stone method of learning languages. I am intrigued and motivated by it.

Fantastic short course for a beginner, clear explanations, even if a mistake is made, a better explanation shows you where the error is made. Worth all the time and effort.

This was a really fun course. I loved the interactive way they have set up the platform. My one critique is that because the answers were always there it was easy to use logic and not the math behind it. Maybe less guided questions.

Love how the course contents are set up! The contents were described in concise, clear words, visuals were excellent, and the frequent quizzes kept me engaged in throughout. Recommended if you want to learn or learn again fundamental business knowledge.

This is an amazing way of presenting the course material. I've done this with mimo, learning how to code but this is awesome! It's revolutionary in that they found a way to make tertiary level courses fun and intuitive.

Excellent material and a very immersive combination of UI/UX. Love the "test to learn" methodology. Great end-of-course resources e.g. course summary and terminology cribsheet

Been through this stuff before so it was a useful and fun reminder. I withheld 1/2 mark from the content, since I believe that there should be at least one problem in each section without any help at all, which would encourage and test remembering the concepts formulas and techniques. That would of course require perhaps taking notes, certainly pen, paper and a calculator, which does not lend itself for doing this course on-the-go i.e. via a smartphone or tablet. The provider full marks are for having provisioned from network disruption which I had a couple. The page remained greyed with a retry button, which saves losing it and finding it again (e.g. re-logging etc). Use of screen area diagrams and colors was easy to follow, so a good design too.

It was interesting to go through what I learned in my undergrad that quickly. I started wondering if this style of learning is far more conducive to student success, and I wish traditional institutions modernized in this way. Great learning style. Expertly conceived.

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.
