Actually it is a great material and amazing instructor, I got a lot of information during the course and even from the references he kindly mentioned. Thanks a lot professor, and thanks coursera.
This course is built in a write way, every lecture has a review, new material and a summery which is very helpful.
The prof. is very clear and understandable and the homework really helps!
This is a nice introductory course but it seems very light on material, especially what you are paying for. Believe it should be more thorough and cover more topics. Michael Roberts was great.
Excellent and concise course! I've dealt with IRR and NPV for my job for years and did not fully understand their origins and limitations, and this course helped clearly articulate that for me.
