this course is really beneficial, I highly recommend it to people of any age. I was in doubt about it because I read it is good for young people, but I learned a lot from this course. Thank you all.

I learned a lot, things are very well explained and slow so that you don't miss anything and so that you understand everything perfectly. Its perfect for beginners and for young adults.

Great introductory level course to know about the basics of financial planning. Course material and subject matter is relevant for everyone (not just young adults) who needs (or wants) to educate themselves about the subject. Coursework is very easy to grasp and not demanding in any way.
Some links related to optional reading/discussion materials are broken and need to be updated.

One of the best course for people who are just beginning for the people who are new to finance. Very comprehensive and well explained with great examples. The reason for 4 stars is because it sometimes feels overstreched and sometimes a topic is not given full explaination. If you find any concept difficult just use google. All the best.

During the pre-recorded lectures, the camera goes away from the PowerPoint slides and onto the person who is talking. It is difficult to take notes if the video does not spend much time on the PowerPoint slides with the important information. To start and stop the video to take notes is annoying.

I found this course a great overview of the concepts of financial planning: budgeting, borrowing, lending, and investing. The content was thorough and clearly laid out. I would recommend this course to someone who is interested in having an introduction to this topic or as a refresher.

Good introduction to the life skills need to begin saving early.Wish I had taken a course like this soon in life and began saving sooner as well. But the tips that I have learned throughout this class can still help me save for retirement.

Pretty good about explaining financial concepts. This is not a course you should take if you're looking for advice, rather it gives a high-level overview of the important financial concepts you'll be dealing with in your life.

For someone who is just entering his/her twenties, I found this course very helpful in managing finances. It's like this is an introductory course to financial independence and a lifelong relationship with money.

Great class overall. I would like to see more updated information, as many of the links no longer work and the material is from about 2012. I would also love to see more diversity in the vignettes.

Financial planning as a career seems too forceful at the end of the course.
Other then that, it is a very good course with good contents and interesting videos for easy understanding.

This course is so rich is nature and in content. It improves various financial aspects of individuals especially young adults and also ensures we secure a good financial future.

I think some contents need to update, such as tech-finance is becoming more now. Therefore, it's really important for update our knowledge and classes tho.

Weeks dedicated to saving and investing were very interesting and useful. The insurance topic (week 4) was too long and not much relevant for my country.

The course is elaborate and comprehensive, though a little too elementary. Mostly suitable for people with no prior financial knowledge.
