Interesting course, easy to follow with appropriate hands-on exercises (including some good tools for financial analysis). Thank you! Definitely enrolling for the whole specialisation!
Enjoyed the course insights and assignments in this course although Finance is not one of my best subjects, I hope there is as much interest and challenge in the second course

Material is interesting and relevant. Well explained. John is engaging and clear as an instructor. I wish there was a way to ask questions. The discussion board doesn't get much discussion - mostly comments that go there to die hehe. The transcript of the text is so full of mistakes. Sometimes completely different than what is being spoken. The tests are generally quite easy. The assignments are very relevant and practical which is great. However, the details on the instructions page and the submission page sometimes differ or are somewhat unclear. The peer-review is fairly straightforward, however there is no support is the peer who has corrected your assignment misreads your answers and fails you. You have to resubmit and wait, sometimes weeks for someone to finally review your work. Some questions only require you to complete portion (A) or portion (B), for example. However, when comes the time to correct someones work, you have to give points to both sections, which leaves it up to the corrector to give "free" points or take away points. This, in turn, can affect the student's final grade. Overall this is a good course that I would recommend. Only a few technical glitch that would require fixing for more stars.

Sloppy setup of the quizzes and assignments.
