I wanted to share an interesting resource, Khan Academy. Khan Academy is an excellent online resource to learn through video lectures and exercises. Topics range from Linear Algebra, Investing and Finance to SAT Prep. The founder, Sal Khan, was named #7 in Fast Company's list of 100 Most Creative People in Business 2011.
Khan, who does all the lectures on the site, is also a Silicon Valley resident, former hedge fund manager, has 3 degrees from MIT and an MBA from Harvard. I think he's a qualified lecturer! Khan Academy is a non-profit and access to the 2400 video lectures are free. Schools are using this resource and incorporating it into the curriculum. I imagine this would be a great learning resource for visual learners. In addition, the program tracks your learning progress and to keep things interesting, you have an opportunity to earn badges for accurately completing exercises. What a great resource for parents to suggest to their kids for math, history or SAT help.
I suggest you browse through the different classes offered, I am sure you will find something that you always wanted to know about in there. I think I might try and learn more about P/E ratios!
