Don’t pass this up great introduction to personal finance

This teacher is informative and engaging. He provides information on a breadth of personal finance topics in a way that is approachable. I enjoyed this format because I could focus on the sections that interested me most and review sections as much as I needed. The information is great for non-business majors that want to learn how to begin to manage our personal finances.

Very Useful

I've been using your tip on putting back 10% for the past couple of months and have managed to save over $500. It's such a simple concept that should be easily recognized but is overlooked until you layout the numbers. The other information that is provided I highly recommend also. A few hours of listening can change your outlook on life from a financial stand point. I feel like high schools should invest more time in courses such as these opposed to physics or calculus. A lot of very smart people find themselves in bankruptcy because they do not know the value of a dollar.

Thank you for your information
