How do I Learn Investing: Accounting and Corporate Finance Videos

Dear Students of Investing: Hello!

You’ll agree that you can’t build a strong house on a weak foundation.

Learning investing is no different. As serious students of Security Analysis and Portfolio Management (aka SAPM), we must have a working familiarity with two basic courses – Financial Accounting and Corporate Finance.

So before we begin with SAPM, let us first revise our basics. These days there are excellent videos available on the internet, which make our task easier. For example, I found these 3 sources to be great for revising corporate finance:

1. Prof. Aswath Damodaran’s Video Lectures

2. MIT Open Course Ware

3. Learnerstv

All three sources are useful. But I think Learnerstv is particularly well-suited for our purposes.
