    Default Study.com - Any New Business Courses Coming Soon?

    Since I know a Study.com rep reads the forum, and since some of you seem to be in the know as well, I'm wondering - does Study.com have any new business course offerings in the works? If so, can you share the details?

    They said they were working on English Comp 2 to be ready in the coming months, so I would expect some other new courses at the same time. A finance class would be pretty cool to have as an option to use in the AOS. I'm still on the lookout for the updated transfer guide for TESU with the courses they added about a month ago.

    My son just took Personal Finance and Principles of Finance at Study.com - the latter course kicked his butt, but he's only 17 and had no prior exposure to most of the concepts. He's hoping for no more finance courses, EVER, after passing it by the skin of his teeth today.

    In particular, I'd love to see them add an Employment Law course.

    I'm sure you'll do fine - my son has been homeschooled all his life and hasn't had much exposure to closed-book tests - he's used to reading and learning for its own sake, so cramming principles of finance for 2 weeks and taking a closed-book final threw him for a bit of a loop. Happy he passed, though, and now he'll move on to HR Management tomorrow!

    Principles of Finance is one of the harder courses you have to take for a business major (in my opinion) so don't look at it as a barometer. I can't imagine taking that without years of experience in Accounting/HR that I have, and I had a difficult time with it (not from Study.com).

    After that class, he should find a lot of them a piece of cake!

    You should be good, I think Rowan555's son lacked the exposure to certain finance principles that you may or may not have. Principles of Finance is just about as easy as Personal Finance was for me. It has a lot of accounting and economic references in it. Class is much easier if you have Microeconomics and Financial Accounting principles already known. I plan to take the final sometime this week. Aiming for tomorrow I will let you know how it goes.

    I am on the guardian scholarship right now and this course has been really well done. It seems easy to me but I have a lot of business classes including accounting so i know a lot of the material in this course already...

    So then it would probably be smarter for me to take Micro and Macro first and then maybe one or two of the Accounting courses before trying Principles of Finance? I just assumed it would be smart to go right from Personal Finance into Principles.
