Un curso con una perceptiva muy refrescante en cuanto a los conceptos técnico-estadísticos y sumamente prácticos. e incluso baratos, de implementar dentro del mundo de la inversión. Muy buen trabajo.
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.

The ppt slides are very nice. The concepts are explained in a very simple way, and the Python codes are helpful.
But for the 4th quiz, the links do not give the right places to go for answering the questions. I would recommend to include snapshot pictures in the questions rather than having links there.
This course can be very helpful for people who are taking Financial Mathematics course, in particular for those who do not know how to use Python yet. Following the course and steps given by this course can really save these students tons of time on their assignments.

Xuhu made a commendable effort in the early part of the class in teaching the basics of this course. Over the last 2 weeks of content however, significant external reading is required for students to do independently from the course content (not a bad thing) but know that extra effort is required to pass the later stages. For the most part, you should have the basics of python prior to taking this course or you will struggle midway. Nonetheless, it was definitely a commendable effort from this course.
par Surendranath M•
Either content should be split into more modules or more lectures to be added in existing modules such that details are covered with a slightly more elaboration. Notebooks must include exercises rather than passive demos of techniques. Students may be provided with reading materials/links as followed by Coursera in other courses.
This course gave me an idea of financial analysis tools available and its usage in Python. Thank you for the free course

Overall good, the professor is delicated and responds to the forum actively. But the course could be better designed. Even though I have learned the knowledge of statistics, econometric, and python and got a 100% certificate, the course is still difficult for me to digest. I have to pause the video and think 5-8 times per video. The pace is so fast that some usages of the python or applicaions of finance equations lack sufficient illustration.
par Andrew C•
I wish the concepts in this course were gone into more in depth. They aren't necessarily difficult but they can get complex and when the instructor spends an accumulation of 30 or less per module it is hard to fully understand. More practice is needed as well. All the code was done for you except for just a few lines. People who learn by application will not gain much from this course.
par Muhammad U K•
Though, the course has got potential to be further refined with the inclusion of some of the foundational concepts of finance.
I would rate it 3 out of 5, because of slight difficulty in understanding lectures due to speech delivery, lack of challenge in the form of already filled labs, however, there are some good foundational concepts as well to get yourself started in stock trading.

Pros: Learn some python code and review statistical knowledge (SLR, MLR)
Cons: The python code is outdated and may not usable. So time consuming to update the code.
For Example: pd.DataFrame.from_csv(..\...\AAA.csv) which is commonly used in the course
It is not usable as DataFrame.from_csv has been replaced by pd.read_csv(r'...)
Also for loc has significant changes
par Dawid V•
The statistics element is basic and there is very little practice coding with Python. Instead, it is more of a demonstration how Python can be used to implement some regressions and basic trading strategies. Informative in showing this, however overall a bit disappointing as there was less Python learning and practice as anticipated/advertised.
par Sanson P•
The course is trying to cover multiple area of skills (python, statistics, and financal analysis) in a short period of time. It might be difficult for people who do not know much computer programming experience to follow the Python part. Vice versa, it might be difficult for people to pick up much financial concepts as an amateur.

Interesting and easy to understand for people with basic background or have basic knowledge about finance or statistic. However, I wish some of the videos may have explained more about how to use the data to solve real life issues. Even though some of the practices may explore it, it appears not deep enough for me
par Alexander D•
This is overall a good course; it is well explained and very quick. However, it would benefit with assigning more exercises or ensuring that the labs are more interactive. In this topic, practice makes perfect and is very necessary. Also, the quizzes require clicking on links that do not work.
par Miranda G•
Good course but I think that economic concepts should be explained in more depth so that we can work better on Jupyter (which is a great way to teach / learn). I also think that more written material with illustrative examples could be included, not just lines of code that generate results.
par Cesar D•
Course content is valuable from Statistics applied in Python code. Unfortunately, it didn't give enough examples or use cases for Financial Analysis. I'd like to see more stocks market predictions, studies and models using the Statistics concepts explained on this course.
par Eduardo F R•
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.
par Mingyue W•
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.
par Sushil K•
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.
par William B•
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.
par 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.
par YI L•
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.
par Abhay N•
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.
par 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.
par Joao V R d S•
Acho que falta exercicios para praticar e colocar em pratica tudo que foi visto.
O curso é muito rápido e muito denso em conteúdo porém acho que esse ponto deve ser melhorado
par Michael O•
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!
par 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.
