Video lessons are available in many of the chapters on our site. These videos use voiceovers, clever animations, and informative graphics to educate you on these topics. As instructors talk you through the various concepts, you will see the information come to life on the screen, almost as if you were in your own private classroom. At the end of each video lesson, the instructors provide a summary of all the major topics that were discussed, reinforcing the information even further.

Each of our lessons, both video lessons and article-style lessons, can stand on their own, so you don't have to review the lessons in the order in which they are presented. If you only need to go over a few topics, use the chapter menu to navigate yourself to those specific areas. Of course, with our video lessons, many users enjoy binge-watching. Since each lesson can be completed in 5-10 minutes, it doesn't take long to get through an entire chapter.
