I have a big problem with regard to the course resources since my PC could not recognize the type of the file so can you tell me what is the extension of the resources files?

Ein wenig "stotterig" und nicht wirklich stringent über die gesamte Argumentation. Warum ein Haus als Beispiel? Ein Haus erwirtschaftet nichts - und ist in keinster Weise zu einer Firma in Verbindung zu bringen. Darüber hinaus zu wenig konzeptionell und zu "hands on" - zu beispiellastig und zu wenig präzise wenn es dann wirklich darauf ankommt.

It is good; but not worth 5 stars yet. It is hard to retain some of the information based on how he explains it with very little examples at times. We shall see how it continues!

As with the other courses I've taken from Wall Street Prep, the delivery is really good. They resent topics in a clear, unintimidating manner following a sound logical progression.
