I've enjoyed this course. Prof. Standen gives a very basic but clear overview of the most common financial topics, wished I had this course a couple of years ago it would have made my life way easier.

The introductory content is all there but some of the material is missing -- the lecturer refers to worked examples, tools to play with and alternative formulations which I could not find anywhere on the system. It also was not clear to me how to ask questions about the construction of some of the terms used, which made it feel like I was not really on a two-way course but rather just in receipt of some stuff. In weeks 3 and 4 the video and transcript starts to jump around a *lot* -- given the rate at which new calculation terms are introduced in these weeks, it makes them very difficult to absorb. The peer reviewed assignment is very good and more worked examples to do at home would be very useful.

It was a good high-level overview, but I felt it was missing some critical details, such as, when calculating the DuPont triangle, one key factor is calculating shareholder equity. Still, the course doesn't callout that you need to use the average shareholder equity to get the calculation correct. The good news is, I researched on other forums and found that out before doing the coursework, and I'll never forget it now!

This is a good course to introduce the novice to financial terms used in common place.

But in my opinion, the instructor could have a gone a bit further, explaining about Markets, Stocks, Bonds etc.

Types of transactions involved.

Maybe its expecting too much, but still, just a suggestion

As a mathematician, the terminology used was not clear enough for me. I would have hoped that there would be no slips and mistakes left in (re-recording). Those were just confusing and too often.

Other than that, I Iiked the lecturer and his energy.

Quick and easy. But I would have liked more examples. For instance, how NPV and IRR actually works on Excel. Luckily, I have some prior knowledge of the subject, but sometimes it was not so clear for a complete beginner.

A solid overview of accounting and finance for the non-financial professional. I have 0 finance and accounting experience, so I valued how broad this course was and I imagine it's a good primer for more in-depth courses.

Adequate course for non-professionals in finance, although I thought they were going to explain many more themes.. to short for my expectations and excesive for the price.

It could be more elaborated. In the 3rd week, there was more equations and hurry to complete the topic, i think. But all in all good. It gives you a brief idea of finance.

The presenter is good and knowledgeable, but the information is barely skimmed over and there isn't any real opportunity to learn. A few worked examples might be good

It was great in the beginning but became a little boring later on. However, content was good on most part though I would recommend adding a few more basic topics.

Good introduction to Finance and Accounting concepts for those with no background in either field, even as students. I liked the valuation module the most!

Good for those looking into learning more about basic finance. I found it was not my cup of tea, but i did learn a few new concepts that i can use.

The course gives a brief but concise overview of Finance. It would have been better if some more concepts and case studies had been incorporated.

The contest is ok, since it provides a general view. Practical examples in Excel would have been great, for determining ratios, cash flows, etc.
