This is an introduction to some of the more common investing terms that you may encounter.

Every investment term is explained in detail, with clear and concise article style description and practical examples.

Understand Investment Types

Liked it! Most investment books I've read and listened are generally worthless, with the author's ego and business motives being the highlight. This book helped me understand most of investment terms I encountered. It is a perfect lexicon of facts and information. It describes all the language & terminology. The information provided has given me enough knowledge to begin trying investing on my own.

A wonderful guide

This book covers the things that an average investor needs to know and no more. It is a good book to read and digest when one is just beginning. It also makes a good reference book where one can go back and look things up if they are trying to recall something.

Thomm rocks!

This course is truly refreshing in terms of how it recap some of the key concepts that are delivered in such an uncomplicated manner. Excellent reference to keep handy. In the finance world everything has a title/acronym or some other little name that was given...This helps to define those and clarify other terms used.
