This module explains the return on equity (Du Pont) ratio. The tutorial walks one through the steps of calculating the ratio by examining the books of a fictitious company. Though it is informative, the information provided is not extensive enough to get a good grasp of the concept. A few more examples would have helped so the tutorial remains at best a study sheet rather than an effective teaching tool.
