WSO Community Resource list

So, I thought that I can spare new users from making new threads regarding what kind of sites they should visit and study from as well as where they can get resources to study for. Anyone is free to add sites and other stuff to this list, just reply in the thread and i'll add your suggestion and your name.

Finance & economics resources through torrents:
http://thepiratebay.se/user/moneymakestheworldgoro...
http://kickass.to/usearch/finance%20category%3Aboo...

[To properly use TPB,you must sort the files either through seeders or "SE", and if you want to see if there were new to torrents upload,click the "Uploaded" tab.

Also there is plenty of content that isn't uploaded to public trackers, so I recommend trying to get your hands an account on private trackers such as TheVault.

GMAT resources through torrents:
http://thepiratebay.se/search/GMAT/0/7/0

Finance & economics resources through DDL:
http://tvbb.org/Forum-Download-Business-Materials (I wouldn't really recommend this, but it's still OK)
(Still have to work on this,but until then I would recommend the P2P program SoulSeek,it's really efficient)

For those who are new to torrenting, I would recommend 2.2.1 Utorrent version, as for other clients I can't really give any recommendations.

SoulSeek is really easy to use,and there are plenty of guides on how to use it.

IT'S UP TO YOUR CHOICE WHETHER YOU WILL USE THE SITES MENTIONED ABOVE,REMEMBER THAT IT IS ILLEGAL TO DOWNLOAD PAID CONTENT,I RECOMMEND YOU BUY THE BOOKS AND CONTENTS YOU FIND THE INTERNET THROUGH LEGITIMATE CHANNELS.
(Unless your country doesn't have laws regarding downloading stuff off the internet or doesn't really care).

(I have to make this list more detailed,suggestions on how to arrange them are much more than appreciated)

I would also recommend following these sites on twitter,if they have one.

I love this idea. However, since so many resources could potentially be listed, maybe everyone could write a concise, 1 sentence description beside/below each resource they list. That way, readers will know if they would like to explore that resource further - otherwise, you'll have to google each thing to figure out what the heck it is in the first place. Just a suggestion.

Prof. Aswath Damodaran's webpage - tons of useful datasets that will help you with discount rates, betas, risk premia, cap structures, organized by industry and region. Really good stuff... trust me.
