About the Course

Finance for Everyone: Decisions will introduce you to the workings of the free markets and the foundations of finance. You will learn how free markets and their “creative destruction” provide the architecture for the global economy and how those same markets move money in ways that create and destroy wealth. Your financial toolkit will include timeless concepts like compounding, discounting, annuities, effective interest rates, and more. You will also learn how to simplify important financial calculations and apply that knowledge to real-life decisions that can influence everything from how you pay for your car to where you live. Through peer review you will publish your view on an issue important to you. You will also discover how your applied decisions connect to bigger questions relating to changing market conditions as you prepare for the second course in F4E: Markets....

This course makes the task easier by carefully defining each line item in the statement, noting the differing forms of allowable presentation, and illustrating how the statement can be assembled. Cash flow statement makes financial market easier to bifurcate instrument of stocks and securities.

Good course for new learners. Switching back and forth between Time Value of Money and the Decisions framework can be off-putting, though. Organisation of material is not necessarily the best, but the course is definitely worth taking for Finance newbies.

A good course for someone with zero finance knowledge but they discuss very few topics in this first course and majority of this course relies upon solving questions while using just 2-3 simple finance formulas.

the course was ambiguous and didn't understand the concept of the course at all, although I have already complete five other Coursera courses but this one was very ambiguous

It is not friendly to people who struggle with note taking and is fairly one demensional. The teacher also presents information too quickly.
