This module helps explain the concept of the price to earnings ratio and some of its financial implications. The module merely walks one through the calculations of a fictitious company. There are no examples nor is there any kind of interactive section where one would get to practice calculating the P/E ratio. The module does not suffice as an effective teaching medium.
