Good and succinct introduction to financial markets and instruments. Clear valuation formulas and intuitive explanation of treatment of cash-flows to define future and present values.

The course was well structured with a lot of practice questions. I personally struggled with the week 1 financial mathematics. I suggest that the formulas be included in the summary notes.

Probably a little elementary for most people signing up for this series of classes, but it was a good review and would be a great intro for those with zero experience with investing.

Course was very advanced. It was mainly focused more on sums and real life problem solving pedagogy rather than teaching basic financial terminology and and its understanding.

1. some in video questions pop up before the concept is being introduced or covered; 2. this course gives a pretty good high-level illustration on some basic concepts

In general a course is very informative and useful. The issues were only some misconceptions, especially in formulas, between video examples and quiz questions.

Pretty Formula heavy but covers a decent relevant range of topics. A lot of personal research is needed to understand the content more thoroughly.

Overall, the course is fine, however there were several annoying typos / rounding issues, which would prevent you from getting the correct answer.
