Great course! Very didatic explanations about financial and statistical concepts also with some interesting practical Python for Finance! Looking forward for new courses from same Univ. and prof.!
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.
Part of the code doesn't work. To fix it it is needed to go to Python documentation and do research
A lot of statistics concept are not quite well explained. The course should include more detailed explanations or at lease some links where the this information can be studied
The results of the trading system implemented in the curse are not the one that you will obtain

Too many mistakes in the use of English throughout the course made it hard for me to follow the course properly without getting annoyed. The instructor's English was terrible as well, just too many mistakes, which made it impossible to follow without subtitles. The content was good though which is why it deserves two points.

I was hoping for a little more from this course. While it effectively combines statistics, finance and python, it does not go into great detail in any of the three. There are spelling mistakes and the audio quality is not great. For me the most useful part was learning the python functions and syntax.

Course is good but (a) some Python bits are not up-to-date and (b) final week exam questions should be updated and brought in sync with either lectures or the lectures need to be updated. If Google has a different answer than the course, well, that's not a great place to be in.

i am happy with subject and course syllabus but if the data that the lecturer worked on them, was available the course would be much more useful,
without the data, it was just some code that we were watching.
thank you coursera :)

I would change the title. It has little practical content on trade, and explains more statistical methods.I would call it "how to use and graph statistics in python, with some trade samples".

The course tried to cover a lot but wasn't really helpful for those who didn't have basic knowledge of either Python or Statistics

Poor Explanation of topics, was in a very hurry to complete than in explaining the concepts in depth. Did not reach expectations.

More coding please. I was looking for more linear modeling examples and implementation. The rest was relatively easy.

Lectures are not very informative. Things are said directly and not explained well. Sadly I paid $50 for this.

The teacher need to learn better pronunciation and slower pacing
video lecturing lacks clarity and big picture context

not improving python skills

This course teaches statistics more than Python coding. The codes are not well explained or even not explained by the instructor. The instructor spent more time on statistics concepts than going through the Python coding. I learned very little about Python in this course.

Should be better explained. Could not get past the first few lines in the practical. Looked at the discussion board and people were saying it was because the course is outdated and the code he explained might not even work with the version we were using

1- the language spoken is not clear (I had t oread the subtitles more than listening which was a horrible experience)
2- the labs are bot built in the right way, lots of errors and lots of data changes that effected the application of the commands
by Jack M•
Horribly worded questions. Difficult to understand the lecturer. Week 1 was good to practice python. Week 2 was awful.
by Sean S•
The code examples and quizzes have not been properly reviewed and there were multiple mistakes in them.
by Marshall T•
codes are not updated to python 3. Also little opportunity to apply codes in IDLE/Anacdona yourself.
by Christeen P•
Disorganized, and the quizzes are not testing abilities nor knowledge but just quantitative skills.
by Avnish A•
very vague and non detailed explanations from week 2. almost impossible to catch up.
week 1 was good
by Pedro J G R•
Very complex explanations (even if you learnt statistic before) and then zero practice. A fake!

Very poor delivery by the instructor. Course title inappropriate for the content.
by Ohad s•
the instructor is not understandable and don't really explain the material
A lot of formulas but it miss some example too generalist sometimes
