    Anyone else use Khan Academy?

    I've started using Khan academy and it's structured pretty well but some of the videos seem to be mis placed... for example he starts teaching polynomials without first teaching exponents. What I'm trying to say is the videos inside each category don't seem to have structure about them.

    So you start watching them 1 at a time but then realise you have to go searching for a video about something he is talking about before you can start doing the problems... It's almost overwhelming aswell because in each category there are about 12 sub categories, and each sub category has anywhere between 20 - 90 videos :O

    Re: Anyone else use Khan Academy?

    everybody has their own requirements and rules of learning.You are free to select any video and watch it before any other one, you can skip and buffer to get to a certain point in the video.....you just have to suit yourself and adapt to it.But the good thing is Sal is very clear and explains each and every step well (and he has a very soothing voice, btw). There are 20-90 videos..., but remember they are short videos averaging about 13 minutes, which is much less than an average class duration.So, If you want to shorten a tutorial then you can obviously skip to the next part.
    Remember you can have those same problems at a "real" school too, but here you surely control your educational process.Nothing can be perfect for everybody...

    Using Khan Academy is Good. but use only its Videos other things you get better in textbooks. Arrange the Contents by yourself or according to your book which you used.
