The professor is very patient, he spends a lot of time making sense of the equations and the calculation process, which helps me comprehend the concepts and their application really a lot. Thank you!

An excellent course overall. I really enjoyed the learning experience and look forward to more courses from Wharton. Special thanks to professor Michael Roberts for providing great value in 1 course.

Excel training on financial should be an integral part of this course. Otherwise, the assignments are impossible to complete. It took me 200% more time to figure out the calculations; which was more complicated than learning the lessons from the professor.

Course should have covered more topics like cost to capital. More practice material on Decision making with DCF, Sensitivity Analysis and ROI would have been beneficial. But whatever was taught by Prof. Michael was good enough for starters.

Good course overall. Some videos were far too long (15+ mins). Too much time spent on manipulating data in Excel and not enough on explaining concepts. Data sheets are distracting and turn most people off when displayed for too long.

The overall course is interesting, however it is my belief that the course lacks structure.

The materials for each week do not seem to have any obvious relationship with each other.

Also, the weekly content could have been more broad.

The quiz was much easier than the previous course in the program "Introduction to Finance and Accounting Specialization". Most quiz questions are repetitive, one the concept is mastered all other questions become formulaic.

Course material is good, some parts missing in between week 2 and week 3. Almost all the quizes have a question or two with incorrect options so that may be frustrating as the staff hasn't addressed these issues yet.

Very shallow introduction; way too much focus on calculating some numbers with easy equations using a calculator; on this level it doesn't matter to crunch numbers, focus should be on understanding general concepts.

No one responds to questions in the forums. For a math-heavy course, there are too many errors in the module to not have response ready. Also, the course does not situate the theory to a broader context.

Even though the lectures are helpful and the professor is great, quizs have a lot of mistakes and duplications. The team should take serious actions to review the quizs and improve the content.

Good course

good quality videos

Would be better if terminology and vocabulary specific to the course was more focused on at some point in the course. Or provide a vocabulary list with definitions

The course is great and taught greatly. I can't give five stars because of the enormous quantity of mistakes in the quizzes, which often didn't include the correct answers to the questions.

Enjoyed and easily understood weeks 1 and 2. Weeks 3 and 4 moved quite quickly and would have liked to have seen more examples and a slower pace to really understand the material.

The course material itself is very good. Unfortunately, practice problems referred to in the videos do not seem to exist and there are an awful lot of mistakes in the quizzes.

C​ourse contents are great.

Q​uizes are very stupid. There are tens of typos and for some of the quizes you cannot find a correct option from the given four due to typos.

The course is good, but there are too many faulty quiz questions. Please fix them, otherwise, they may confuse future students more than reinforce their study.

Some of the quiz questions had serious typos, which was annoying. None of the correct answers were available on multiple quizzes. Embarrassing and disgraceful!

That's a little bit of a pity that so interesting material got a bit went over so quickly. I think there's so much thing in there that hasn't been explained

I knew A BUNCH of this stuff already and I've never taken a finance class. They give a good overview, but definitely does not go in depth on anything

The course was good,But the quiz section on the course was very bad it had way to easy questions and 30% of the questions had wrong answer in them

Much less content than a previous version, lack of answers after solving the assignments does not help to understand where a mistake was made.

Taught well, but practice problems were not available and some test questions had typos with incorrect answers that were marked as correct.

The material was very interesting, and the professor explained everything very well, but there were so many errors on the quizzes.

The course is good, covers some important information, but there are many mistakes in the quiz. Also I think the quiz is too easy.

The professor doesn't really go into much detail. Feels like he rushes the course, but the information he does provide is helpful.

Content was great - videos were super helpful, but the lessons and test didn't give the opportunity to really learn the material
