"I found this 'short' course [The Use of Terms and Conditions] to be very interesting and informative,...especially: reinforcing to me how to calculate 'annualized interest rate'; what the UCC says about missing terms; and, reminding me to avoid attaching to a PO (&/or signing) sales orders/sales order acknowledgements from suppliers."
