Resource Review: Morningstar's Classroom

As I have mentioned before I subscribe to the Morningstar premium service. But they have a lot of stuff that is free without that subscription. A really great and free feature I do not hear much discussion about is the "Investing Classroom" that they have on the website here. It may go unnoticed for the simple fact that it is not easy to find on the Morningstar website.

What is great about it is that it provides interactive tutorials where one can learn about stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and asset allocation. Each course takes you through short study sessions on subjects like how to read financial statements and how to value a company.

Here is how Morningstar describes it:

"Our courses cover everything you need to know, from the basics to advanced techniques. And our courses are conveniently short. You can complete each course in about 10 minutes."

If you are a new investor looking for a structured learning experience this is a good place to start.
