Overall the course is good but the python codes used are not explained properly. So for python beginners like me, it was difficult to understand.

Relatively easy course that has taught me a number of useful panda tricks. Notebooks are used just for demonstration and not very challenging.

Professor can do hands simultaneously with lecture then it will be more beneficial and easy to understand instead of explaining from slides

A decent beginners guide to financial analytics.

Don't expect much as this is more like a foundation course for more in depth complex once.

Very interesting, but some concepts went too fast. It is also very difficult to learn how to code, other than copy-pasting the lines.

Background required, the course often provides no additional/explaining information about technical details, need to use google)

Overall nice course. Sometimes the instructor skips some logical steps. It would also be nicer to see the coding happening live.
