This was a fantastic course, with a realistically attainable amount of material, and a humble, knowledgable professor whose teaching style makes a normally difficult topic very easy to understand.
Professor Weisbenner is fabulous! He is able to make anyone understand complex investment topics through his delivery and curriculum design. You are missing out not taking Investments from him!

The course lost focus on what it wants to deliver, go ways into unimportant matters yet spending little time on tutorials. I have to do extra research to answer assignment questions. There is no active moderator so discussion forum isnt very helpful if students got questions.

Too much content in a single course. Some topics are off the track and not explained properly as discussed before.

Ok up to Module 3. Module 4 very convoluted.

Awesome topic, but videos are WAY too long. So many sidebars, tangents, and extra details that ultimately detract away from the lesson. I found myself finishing videos not understanding what it was I had just learned. My recommendation would be to really consolidate the information down to only what is critical to understand the topic.

The professor needs to use more examples with illustrations. I thought I could get more from the videos. There were so many places where I felt he just read the slide without explaining the formula or concept with numbers of figures etc.

This is NOT a Beginner level course. At best, its intermediate. There is a lot of math that is expected to have already known which puts the learner behind.

It is way too long. Things can be summarize further to get the learning objectives across. Please.

Hardest classes I've taken. Soooo much content. Way too technical and in-depth for my taste

I did not like the course. I am a visual learner and learn by reading and seeing. Most of the times important material (like formula, conclusions etc.) were left out from the course material. Formulas are given without explanations of individual components. It means that you have to go back to lectures and listen really hard to understand. Maybe the teachers should have given a text book instead.
I don't understand the concept of peer graded assignments - seems to me an absolute waste of everyones time

Will never use this information again, wish it was created so that no matter your background and job it would help you understand the market. The use of excel to calculate numbers I will never be able to find on a company does not help my career in anyway.

Instructor know's his stuff, but there are sooooo many "ahh" and "umm". It is impossible to follow. I expect better from U of I. Really ashamed. I counted it up and on average in one video he says it about every 10-12 seconds.

Poorly taught and overcomplicated, I have been in finance for 6 years and this stuff is much more simple in real life. If you just want to stick to academia, this is a perfect course.

Professor goes off-topic very often and is not concise. Poor quality in general.

This course is a shameful mess.
