The course combines both python coding and statistical concepts and applies into analyzing financial data, such as stock data. By the end of the course, you can achieve the following using python: - Import, pre-process, save and visualize financial data into pandas Dataframe - Manipulate the existing financial data by generating new variables using multiple columns - Recall and apply the important statistical concepts (random variable, frequency, distribution, population and sample, confidence interval, linear regression, etc. ) into financial contexts - Build a trading model using multiple linear regression model - Evaluate the performance of the trading model using different investment indicators Jupyter Notebook environment is configured in the course platform for practicing python coding without installing any client applications....

A very good introduction course to python programming and it has a perfect combination with statistics, which makes financial analysis more interesting and refresh my mind on it, thanks.

Very clear explaining of the significant aspects when structuring a financial analysis, applicable in many forms of data if you don't want to make predictions only for the stock market.

The course was a bit fast-paced and explanations could be more lucid and elaborate. Please increase the number of modules and provide more practice sets.

It's not bad, but it's not great either. I guess it works as a good starting point for further research, but the content is pretty general.

Overall a great experience but was not having a finance background so using these stock market terms for the first time was a challenge.

The course is somehow overlapped with the course ISOM2500.Moreover,i do not think that I have really learned a lot regarding Python.

A per-requsite of statistics is required. One should review the basics of statistics before taking the course. Pace is too fast.

It's a bit difficult for students who have no either coding or statistic background to understand the content of the course.

Overall pretty good, somethings are pretty much just glossed over and you have to figure out yourself or just plain skip.

Do not recommend. Try other courses that specify on the individual topics rather than skimming over all 3 !

Good course! It will be better to put more challenging questions as a practice in the jupyter notebook.

The basics were not explained properly.

A lot of code was unexplained.

Forum doubts were not answered .

Lots of info to learn. Does not challenge you to actually write the code, which is a big drawback.

More time should be devoted on python syntax used and more models and examples should be included

It did deliver the content it was supposed to, but it could be done in a more slow-paced manner.
