This is a 19 lecture course that, if followed, will give you a reasonable chance of picking up an A level - perhaps at a very high grade - in a short period of time. This is no empty boast - some of my students have passed at grade C and above after as little as 4 (yes...four!) hours of tuition. These 19 very very brief lectures provide you with the basics of covering a huge chunk of the A level course.
And all for a price way way below what you could spend on textbooks - never mind two years at school!
But you must a) have an interest in business b) be willing to learn from your surroundings c) keep yourself aware of business activities and d) ask questions!
The initial lecture encourages a shift of mindset. This is expanded on in lecture 7. By lecture 8 we are looking at past examination questions.
Remember, though, a lot of your learning will come as you go about your day to day activities - this course merely 'primes' you.
It has worked for others - and the evidence is there - so why not let it work for you?
Welcome to the course!
