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.

useful, succinct, and fundamental.

Enough for an international high-school student like me!

This class is very challenging

Excellent foundational course for financial markets
