TOP REVIEWS FROM THE LANGUAGE AND TOOLS OF FINANCIAL ANALYSIS
Really insightful instruction on the basics of accounting and finance! I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to begin learning about financial analysis. No prior experience is needed.
WOW!!! By far the BEST Course in Coursera catalog! Incredible the tools that are taught. Thanks so much. Absolutely recommended for every person regardless of professional background.
The course is easy to be understood especially if the person has a finance/accounting background. The classes were engaging and gave much information about economic conditions.
A very good starter course for getting into corporate finance. Be warned though, you will need to refer to a lot of material on your own (google!) to keep up with the course.
