Great course! Very didatic explanations about financial and statistical concepts also with some interesting practical Python for Finance! Looking forward for new courses from same Univ. and prof.!
A very good introduction course to python programming and it has a perfect combination with statistics, which makes financial analysis more interesting and refresh my mind on it, thanks.

It has wide explanation of statistics basics on the other hand the model development with python applied in finance has too few examples. I would also suggest data acquisition with Yahoo Finance or Google to be explained as it is widely used in financial analysis.

Tough for a person not familiar with statistics and completely new to python. Would have been good to provide more basics to python as well. However, i would believe it'll be very beneficial for one who has already strong foundation in statistics to follow.

first and 4th week was fun and relevent. but the 2nd and 3rd weeks were quite difficult to understand and also lack clarity of what we are learning is how that is going to relate in the trading programming.

Could have done with some more opportunities to write pieces of code in different scenarios; many of the notebooks consisted of just running the prewritten code snippets in order and observing the effects.
von Ricardo P•
Overall good course but needs to clean/improve some of the code/quizes to be consistent. Does not explain Statistics or financial models well but shows basic idea of how to find/use them in Python.

Videos are not really connected to the practice. Some finance and statistic stuff is simply mentioned and directly used without enough explanation. I finished the course with help from Google.

This course is good for someone familiar with the concepts of statistics and linear regression. However, for a complete beginner, it's a little difficult to understand everything taught here.
von Anand S•
This is a course more for statistics than python. All we understand is how to use the Python libraries and their functions to compute statistical data.

It's kind of hard to understand to understand the lecturer/professor, but the course material is interesting. I was hoping for a little more programming in Python though!
von Ketan V•
The video tutorial could have been better, however the notebooks and quiz were perfectly prepared and were instrumental in verifying our understanding of concepts.
von Sagnik S•
this course is really good course to understand python programming
1.you need basic and intermediate knowledge of statistics
2. basic knowledge of finance

I think the most valuable part of the course is in week 4 but It was rushed by fast
explanations and I was hoping a better pace in these important topics.
von Shashank G•
The course was a bit fast-paced and explanations could be more lucid and elaborate. Please increase the number of modules and provide more practice sets.
von Lisa W•
It's not bad, but it's not great either. I guess it works as a good starting point for further research, but the content is pretty general.
von Mridul w•
Overall a great experience but was not having a finance background so using these stock market terms for the first time was a challenge.
von King Y C•
The course is somehow overlapped with the course ISOM2500.Moreover,i do not think that I have really learned a lot regarding Python.
von Lui M C•
A per-requsite of statistics is required. One should review the basics of statistics before taking the course. Pace is too fast.
von Sui W T•
It's a bit difficult for students who have no either coding or statistic background to understand the content of the course.
von Christopher B•
Overall pretty good, somethings are pretty much just glossed over and you have to figure out yourself or just plain skip.
von Sam N•
Do not recommend. Try other courses that specify on the individual topics rather than skimming over all 3 !
von Wynona R N•
Good course! It will be better to put more challenging questions as a practice in the jupyter notebook.
von Arihant J•
The basics were not explained properly.
A lot of code was unexplained.
Forum doubts were not answered .
von Luke L•
Lots of info to learn. Does not challenge you to actually write the code, which is a big drawback.
von Prateek J•
More time should be devoted on python syntax used and more models and examples should be included
von Hugo L M•
It did deliver the content it was supposed to, but it could be done in a more slow-paced manner.
