I felt very happy of completion of the course and Coursera designing the course structure by and flexibility to reschedule the deadline. Importantly the instructor knowledge on the subject is superb.

This course is very helpful to really get a taste of the financial models used for investing. If you are one of those who love to break down a problem and base your decisions on an in depth analysis, then this is the course for you. This course only talks about stocks and not other financial securities, however the main advantage of this course is that you would learn concepts, ideas and logics that could very well be extended to other financial securities. The course is easy to understand but it is always a good idea to have basics of economics and mathematics brushed up beforehand.

Interesting and math heavy course with introductions to CAPM, APT and single factor models. The one gripe I have is that I feel like I lost the plot somewhere along way. Even though I was learning how to calculate a whole bunch of things, I wasn't sure of how to connect that back to the underlying concepts. I wish this was reinforced more and the math was a complement to the concepts. I would maybe reduce one unit and focus instead of deepening the connections between the math and the concepts over the rest of the units.

I find this course very helpful and knowledgeable for a finance enthusiast. i also believe this course can facilitate easy entry into investment field. having said that there are some change that need to be done. like some topics need to be more elaborated in the course. they come abrupt to student and become more challenging which can be avoided and be communicated with more examples and background.

Lots of Mathmatics. I think there is far too much mathematics being put into portfolio management and not enough emphasis on behavioral models of investment nor consumer driven markets. Like much of the investment world, this is going far too quantitative and searching for too many scientific mathematical relationships that don´t always pan out for real stock prices.

Great learning of basic concepts. However it could have been better had the reading section included a few practical problems . It could help us to better our skills in understanding the theoretical portions of the course.

The professor did a great job simplifying the material down. The short videos really helped me get acclimated to the format of Coursera. The examples were very clear and easy to understand.

A good course for someone interested in knowing the mathematical intuitions behind the theories and the final assignment helps a lot in revising all major concepts in a detailed manner,

It is a good course. Lecture material (transcript, slides, etc) and reading references are valuable. Reading equations from slides as part of the lecture is not necessary.

I loved the course content. I only wish there was more practical training, especially some thats done in the indian market. Not the American one. Afterall it is ISB.

Although the selection of concepts was up to the mark, the course went a little haphazard. A few concepts were repeated with different terminologies and the significance of another few concepts were never discussed. Overall, it is a great course for someone who has knowledge of basic statistics and finance

Course was a little dry. A downloadable sheet of Functions and definitions would go a long way to making this course more enjoyable. Otherwise, for those new to the terminology it is one big game of trying to figure out what is being said or asked in the assignments.

Not bad for a general overview but it's lacking explanations to make it stand on its own.
