The course material and examples are very useful. I really like the CF spreadsheet at the end of week 4 as this is very organized CF model and I can use this as reference to build my own. Thank you!

Thank you for the wonderful course. It gave us substantial information to evaluate a project based on NPV and IRR. The sensitivity analyses and the consequent scenarios were spelt out lucidly.

More practical examples on excel as an exercise/assignment would help in making understanding of the the concepts easier.

The professor should add more into the calculating the present value of growing perpetuity as most of the projects are followed by other project or these go for an extended period of time.

This course has felt irrelevant in comparison to some of the other courses in this specialisation and this has a very narrow focus which doesn't help. Not all of us are accountants.

Some modules are better than others. There is a strong emphasis in accounting rather than modelling, which was not what I was looking for.

I think this course could have been a brilliant one if in week 4 they would have explained things in more depth and specially performing the 'what-if analysis' on excel. I feel the pace was high and could have been a bit slower including more examples. Also, there was a lot of confusion in week 2s quiz. Overall, its a good course.

It is a great course, however some practical examples to try would benefit users

not bad, but some of the contents doesn't really teach you much

This course was okay. It could be improved by incorporating some concepts and principles of a previous course, "Modeling Risk and Realities".

Week 4's lectures incorporated some excel work, but none were demonstrated by the lecturers. Would have preferred that they actually do the demonstration on the excel file, rather than explaining via the literature on the slides.
Some concepts like straight-line depreciation are introduced in week 2, but depreciation is properly explained only in week 3. I've studied accounting so this wasn't bothersome for me, but the structure of the course could be better if we are introduced to depreciation fully in Week 2.
Other than that, a solid course.

The information is reviewed quickly through the lectures series and it would have been helpful to have some practice scenarios before taking the quiz. It's more helpful to review different spreadsheet layouts to familiarize how variables are organized.

Too many talking, hard to keep up with the pace.
Too many words in a slide, hard to read or extract the key points.

Some material hard to digest. I felt that some quizzes were more difficult than others and course material was hard to apply to them.

Not very practical, want to learn more modelling skills but what I've learned were just some basic financial theories

Turned out to be a course in financials rather than modeling. The whole specialization could have been designed to make better progress in modeling.

Very little modelling in this course, instead you get some accounting lectures which are pretty difficult to follow if you have no previous accounting knowledge. Very boring lectures, too!

There were a lot of assumptions that they did not thoroughly explain and went over mostly conceptual cash flow movements. Hardly used Excel at all and didn't really relate to the rest of the courses in terms of statistical analysis used.
