This topic came up in another thread, and I thought it deserves its on thread. So if you didn't know, several of the most famous and prestigious universitites put their courses and study materials online for FREE, thus you don't need to get a degree and a huge debt if you just want to have KNOWLEDGE. http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/index.htm âThe idea is simple: to publish all of our course materials online and make them widely available to everyone.â Dick K.P. Yue, Professor, MIT School of Engineering "MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity." By the way here are some trading related ones: Game theory for Managers: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/sloan-sc...rs-spring-2004/ " The course is structured around three "themes for acquiring advantage in games": commitment / strategic moves, exploiting hidden information, and limited rationality." Fundamentals of Probability: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electric...lity-fall-2008/ Statistical thinking and Data Analysis: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/sloan-sc...ysis-fall-2011/ Advanced Stochastic Processes: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/sloan-sc...sses-fall-2005/ Financial Management: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/sloan-sc...nt-summer-2003/ There are dozens of more about Finance, you can find them under Sloan School of Management... If you look around the net, there are also video lectures, so you can have the feeling of classroom, without the distraction of deep cleavages. Now get your sorry ass ready and start to study!
