A good bit of information. , Thursday, June 19, 2014

There was a good bit of information in this course. At times the information was contradictory, although this really seemed to be the result of poor editing rather than real misinformation. As other reviews have indicated, at a few points the 'exercises' to the right did not mirror the text, and in a few cases led to wrong answers because the system expected an incorrect answer! However, this was really minor in the grand scheme of the course. Some of the formulas could have been simplified with a bit of algebraic manipulation (particularly the markdown and markup formulas), but perhaps some people like to work in multiple steps. Overall, the course was worthwhile to me, someone skilled in mathematics but lacking in business and retail knowledge.

Solid introductory class , Tuesday, April 01, 2014

I learned a lot of the basics in a relevant manner. The material had examples that were easy to relate to and made working through the course very smooth. I feel prepared after completing it.

However, I found a mistake in the math in the "Maintained Markup" section. The course equation says to use (1 - %markup/100) but in the example, they use .45 as %markup instead of 45. In the course's math, that would be (1 - .45/100) or (1 - .0045) which equals .9955 but they answer they were looking for was .55.

Other than that mistake, everything was great.

Found the course to be very helpful. When the course tells you the correct answer to the problems, I would have preferred if they had explained how they got the answer they came to. THis would have helped me determine how to go about coming to that conclusion.
