Incredibly simply explained. A great learning experience.

However, a small request for the editing team, there are couple of videos, out of sync with the images, and a few numbers as well, esp in the fourth week

It would be nice to have the spreadsheets available to do the calculations

Improve audio

Excellent content of the course although in my opinion it is necessary to see more basic financial mathematics

While the course provides a relevant insight into the key aspects of investments and trading, the end of week quiz does not provide a holistic representation of the topic covered in the course

Apparently there is a missing part when the professor is talking about the calculation of beta, it doesn't introduce the concepts of covariance and suddenly it appears in the video.

Course structure is good, it covers almost everything but if you are looking for an understanding its not for you. They have a script and its all bookish knowledge. so all the best!

Some places slides are different from what the instructor is teaching. The instructor could have spent less time on reading numerals and use this time to explain concepts

Good for beginner but would recommend to have a bit knowledge about trading as it will be easy to grasp, Also WEEK 3 will be very challenging as its just MATH

The course was good. But some points were not illustrated in the videos but have relevant relation with the course. So I have to check them on the internet.

A general brief about how you can make calculated and broad assumptions on the tock market. Not a specialized course but is helpful in getting the basics.

On the three it got i little bit complicated because it was a lack of information about a spetific topic (The CAPM) But the rest was really great. Thanks

The asset pricing model calculation and calculation of covariance is not explained at all which is a drawback because it is considered a beginner course

Week 2 quiz has precision errors on answers and week 4 videos have audio issues, overall week 1 and week 4 are the best of the course to a beginner
