Global Financial Markets and Instruments is a MUST. Excellent instruction! I truly appreciate the opportunity to receive this course from such a prestigious University - Rice University.

Good and succinct introduction to financial markets and instruments. Clear valuation formulas and intuitive explanation of treatment of cash-flows to define future and present values.

I like that the course material is divided up such that someone who is busy with a day job can also find time to listen to the lectures and do the quizzes. Also like that the course gets you familiar with the way the financial market is organized and helps one get familiar with the terms. However, I personally felt there was insufficient coverage on the math and many of the quiz questions were not at all easy to understand the terms and apply the formulas. There need to be more examples of such problems so that there is more familiarity with the math especially for those completely new to this field.

The Instructor is very very energetic and creates focus, but only reason for a 4 star is that the questions asked are much more harder than what taught in the lectures and sometimes out of what was taught in the lecture, so it felt pretty hard to solve the practice questions. I'm sorry to say but I had to take help from internet for understanding some aspects of course because the instructor did'nt teach about that but was given in the questions.

Good introductory course! It gives an overview of the global financial market-as the course name suggests. The math problems are a bit hard though. Improvement can be made for the pop up quiz during the lecture--it suddenly cut the lecture; thus disrupting my concentration. It think it needs to be properly placed during the lecture so as to help in reviewing the lesson, not disrupt the student's focus.

The course was very informative. The material is well summarized for a beginner or as a fresher course. However I wish the quiz module was more user friendly. Sometimes it got questions wrong because it did not recognize a number format when it was not specified.
Also if its possible can old articles be added in PDF. Some links didn't work for nonsubscriber.

Personally I enjoyed getting to "sit in class" again. The lecturer made things pretty clear cut as well. Not 5 stars because I believe there are some small errors for the quizzes, especially when some answers are correct but registered as an error due to decimal places or having and extra symbol like %.
For those who are determined to learn, you'll do fine.

This course was very helpful for me as a complete newbie to the subject, it provided me with an impulse to learn more. I would rate it at full 5 stars if learning videos were more concrete and went into more detail as I want to deeply understand the subject I'm studying in a complex manner and not only in definitions and limited applications.

Great Course which provides students with a strong option for entering the financial planning field, taking less time than a extensive course and allowing students to study on their own time, without having to make major sacrifices in their professional or personal lives.

I'd like more details in the course -- more of the mathematical derivations of the equations -- and I'd be willing to pay more a course like that. I also think that the transcription could be easily cleaned up so that the text matches the lecture.

The course was well structured with a lot of practice questions. I personally struggled with the week 1 financial mathematics. I suggest that the formulas be included in the summary notes.

Probably a little elementary for most people signing up for this series of classes, but it was a good review and would be a great intro for those with zero experience with investing.

Course was very advanced. It was mainly focused more on sums and real life problem solving pedagogy rather than teaching basic financial terminology and and its understanding.

1. some in video questions pop up before the concept is being introduced or covered; 2. this course gives a pretty good high-level illustration on some basic concepts

In general a course is very informative and useful. The issues were only some misconceptions, especially in formulas, between video examples and quiz questions.

Overall, the course is fine, however there were several annoying typos / rounding issues, which would prevent you from getting the correct answer.

Decent course, some mistakes however in some of the answers. Some topics could've been explained more in depth.
