Very clear and articulate explanation of the concepts. He doesn't skip a step in the sequencing ideas, drawing comparisons and differences, and illustrating both visually and story-telling. Excellent.

Very nice course for beginner, the mathematic level is not high (around french baccalaureat) so available to everyone. I enjoyed a lot this course that show how simple math can be used in real life.

It would have been easier to solve practical quiz questions if the module included some information on how to actually solve the problems.

Would be nice to get the answers to the end of module questions so you can revise where you went wrong.

A good course to have an overview of the fundamentals for Financial Modeling, I think it is intended just to refresh your previous knowledge about these topics because there is no deeper content.

Good overview. However, much of this information was even more basic than I had anticipated.

It is very basic module without any insight into the mathematical details of the topic

Covers all concepts, but mostly focused on the theoretical aspects.

The course is informative and does its job of introducing the approach to modeling pretty nicely. It could be made more rigorous by going in-depth about probabilistic models, particularly the Monte Carlo simulations and the Markov models.
I would like to thank Prof. Richard Waterman and the Coursera team for making this course available. Prof. Waterman is precise and to the point. Those who find the video lectures to be slow paced (which includes me as well ) can watch it at 1.5-2X speed.

I am exactly looking for this course since 7-8 months recently i come across and immedietly registered .
I am going through the concepts covered here. Nice and elaborative. Thank you Dr

Just finished the course.Well designed and explained.The explanation of some equation could make it more understandable. I would have given it 5star if there was some exercise for practice.

The course is extremely well crafted but brief, Don't expect a Full Fledged Analytics Deep dive rather a hawk eye understanding of the analytical business modelling methodologies.

Course was very interesting, However I wish there were easier ways to explain to details also the instruction , I would recommend to grab the students attention more to make it more understandable.

The course teaches the fundamentals of modelling and it fits the needs of people with no previous knowledge in finance.

Felt a little rudimentary until the last week. I hope the specialization picks up after this point.

This is essentially a statistics course couched in business terms, with a smattering of finance. The term quantitative modelling' is just how 'stats' has been 'rebranded' in the modern era. That is not a criticism from my point of view, but worth mentioning.
Ultra-challenging for non-mathematician 'analysts'. The material is also structured sub-optimally. More cohesion would aid understanding. But the course is often rivetting and informative in ways that other groundings in stats fail to be, in my experience.
Difficult, but well worth the effort.

I was expecting the course to provide insight on how to use spread sheet and its respective formulae in mathematical modelling.

Nice primer for modeling, but wish there were more workable problems to help hit the point home.

the questions, even though the niveau is quite low but you don't really get any great insight and may be wrong if you didn't hear or read a word., Even though you've understood it.
