This was a good exercise but it wasn't as exciting as it might be.

Good flash exercise, but as other reviewers have mentioned requires prior knowledge without a link to source materisal

Time spent reviewing site: 5 min.

I liked the graphics and interactivity, but it does not teach the student the differences between the three types of business organizations; it just asked them to name them and shows some percentages about the three types. The ads on the site also were distracting for a learning environment.

Seems to require prior introduction or experience with the material. Does not describe the different types of business organizations. Possibly too basic for collegiate level courses.

Quiz gives a good start, but not enough questions to adopt for a class; assumes a base of knowledge that might be better served with a brief mini-lecture (2-3 minutes) before Pie charts were a neat idea

Technical Remarks:

corporation and corporations should both be correct, just as partnership and partnerships should be correct, etc.; thus needs some work on modifying what is a correct answer

This is a nice exercise for students to get an introduction to the forms of
business ownership. It is interactive, and through statistics provides them
with insights on why most successful firms move to the corporate form of
ownership over time. It is
accurate and significant, and yet relatively simple.

Technical Remarks:

I found it easy to use, but I have the flash plug-in loaded on my computer. One
of the things that impressed me was the fact that if you didn't, a link was
provided where you could download it easily prior to use.
