    Has anyone tried any Khan Academy courses? I'm mainly interested in Economics & Finance, but any other subject opinion is well appreciated too.

    Khan Academy saved my ass in calculus. My teacher sucked and I failed my first quiz. I was lost and was in summer accelerated. Watched Khan Academy videos and did a shit ton of practice problems and got an A on the next test. It's awesome IMO. Udemy is utter trash in comparison.

    It's awesome. I learned Calculus from there before we had even started it in school in order to prepare myself. I aced the course completely thanks to Khan

    Yeah he breaks it down well and makes the videos short and specific. That way you can look up specific things to refresh your understanding easily.

    But in terms of starting a business, you won't have much applicable info.

    Never tried any of their paid content but if it's anything like the free stuff they put up on YT it's probably worth a pretty penny. their free yt vids have helped me through quite a few of the heavier math classes I've had to take.
    That being said I would assume you can find free video guides on just about any topic regarding the stuff usually taught in economic/finance classes - at bach level anyway. For that reason I would have a quick look around yt/google before applying for any paid courses.

    Khan Academy is incredibly useful, I've followed a few courses and the teacher explained very well.

    They are good! By the way, jQuery's creator John Resig works there. Has to be legit ;)

    Great service. I'm actually a donor to it because they are so awesome. I've done a fair amount of statistics and calculus activities on there for my own enrichment. Easy to understand and the gamification is pretty amazing.
