I used this learning material for teaching myself about credit cards and interest rates. I found it very helpful and took lots of time to go through the entire quiz sections to learn as much as I could. I think this is a great resource for students and while some of the links for student credit cards may be more focused on selling credit cards, the learning material is very good.
