Great content and range in topics. The powerpoint presentation could use a little improvements and small corrections. I would like a little more explanation on the formulas or examples of them in use before the quizzes. Thank you!

Excellent content in this course. Did not give five stars because the discussion portion of the course is non existent so you pretty much have to figure some things out on your own if you have questions. Overall the course was great and the instructor was very insightful. Thank you ISB.

The asset pricing model calculation and calculation of covariance is not explained at all which is a drawback because it is considered a beginner course

The explanation can be made a lot more lively. Otherwise, the instructor is extremely knowledgeable and gives good idea of the subject.

Course is very good for beginners, but it has some mistakes which users has pointed out but hasn't been fixed.

Will recommend to fix the typo errors as receivers may be following up the in-correct teachings.

Thus 3 stars. Would have marked 5 star if the mistakes would had been fixed in time.

Good overview of trade basics

Presentation could be improved on passing on the message and less focusing on reading the numbers in the examples.
