A Khan Academy account will get you access to hundreds of video lectures and exercises on a wide variety of topics, many of them narrated by the site's founder and executive director Sal Khan.
The site is especially useful if you want to learn specific topics rather than an entire subject, like how the stock market works and how to build a balance sheet.
