"I have played the resource stocks for many years. The Petro-Ed 'Oil and Gas for Investors' course, has greatly improved my understanding of oil and gas fundamentals, and the significance of such factors as the type of petroleum system and style of sedimentary basin in assessing exploration risk. I'd recommend this course for anyone who wants to make more informed investment decisions - expert or layman alike! Very well put together and very well presented!"
