Wonderful course, she explains the basics of investment and why it is important, for a beginner that's the best class ever.

Straight to the point basic investment advice. I would say following her conservative strategy is great for the long haul of low-risk saving for retirement. And a great way to ease into investing without worrying about losing your sbirt.
