This lesson laid a very clear foundation of NPV. The examples helped really explain it purpose and how to calculate different scenarios in excel. The instructor is very easy to listen to.

I really enjoyed this overview of NPV. Examples using tables and excel were very helpful. My only complaint is that the last 2 quiz questions were not covered in the material.
