Very clear and articulate explanation of the concepts. He doesn't skip a step in the sequencing ideas, drawing comparisons and differences, and illustrating both visually and story-telling. Excellent.
Very nice course for beginner, the mathematic level is not high (around french baccalaureat) so available to everyone. I enjoyed a lot this course that show how simple math can be used in real life.

It is very easy and somehow less impacting on real business problem. I hope this Microdegree will get into some kind of complexity otherwise will remain high school level.

If you have taken a statistics course in the past, this course is not super useful besides understanding which models are used for specific business problems.

Explanations not clear. Difficult to follow equations in slides (variables and equations are not repeated from slide to slide).

Personally, did not like the pace of the course. The course can be a bit more interesting with real-life case studies.
von Andrey V•
Just the basics. No concrete explanations of models. You have to study them on your own.

Very basic and the lectures are short in duration. Not what I expected from this course.

Too difficult for a beginner, lecture fails to reach to the main point directly

Professor didn't communicate the material in a way that was easy to understand

at some point it was a little bit complicated for me
A first year undergraduate student can pass this
Really theoretical and not detailed

I do not intend this to be mean, but I could not listen to Richard Waterman. I am British and I understand that Richard was born in the UK but spent a great many years in the US. If he had a BritiI really struggled to listen to him as his accent crosses the Atlantic several times a sentence. I found I couldn't listen to WHAT he was saying because I was so distracted by HOW he was saying it. I am sorry, there is probably nothing that he can do about it and the course looked very interesting but I simply could not bring myself to continue.

Beware of Coursera and the $49 charges. I found that I am being charged $49 per month for each class that I signed up for. The $49 charges continue FOREVER, long the classes have been completed. When the credit card expired, I was kicked out of the class that I was in the middle of without warning. I am unable to reach anyone at Coursera to attempt to resolve the problems.

This is pure statistics, not exactly financial modeling like the course it belongs to. Also, the lecturer speeds through concepts. You should already be familiar with statistics so that you don't have to rely on the speaker's explanations.

The course is poor. Exams are too easy, video lessons are boring and not engaging. Content is poor too. Did not like the course.
von Matheus V•
I thought that course was more specific. I will expect more applications examples.
von Shaina K•
It's too easy ... I can learn this on google.

boring, it doesn't like other quants course.
