I love the way Investopedia designed their courses. The Academy allows me to have complete on demand access to each course I purchase. Investopedia Academy was perfect in that it allowed me to take the courses at my own pace and I could rewatch any lessons I wanted.

I was a big fan of Investing of Beginners. John Jagerson was extremely precise, very thorough in his explanations, and quite easy to follow.
