Hi Team,

Course is good.

Videos and contents need to be updated on regular basis, sometimes data discussed is bit outdated.

The course content is excellent.. but it has a huge problem from my point of view.

Me as a person who had no background at all about company capitals and finance topics, found it extremely difficult to cope with the course specially the first week.

I needed one month of study from other sources before being able to complete the first week.

I suggest that the content should be adjusted to give a basic introduction for beginners.
