Pretty easy, overall.
General corporate finance. Definitely not a joke. Grade is heavily dependent on performance in exams. Make sure you study the book and do the book problems. They are important. Videos online of Wellman are fantastic. They make the course easier so keep up with them. Learn how to use the financial calculator early on. It's not difficult.
Learn about financial market, stocks and ways to value them, bonds, systemic risk in the market, relate all the concepts to the industry and how investment banks in particular operate. You also learn about ways a company can manage its shares in the market. Things you learn in this class carry over to the rest of your finance courses. In fact, specialization Corporate Finance I is sort of an exact copy of this course, may be even easier. So make sure you master this class.

Advice for students:
Read the book. Solve the book problems. Listen to the videos. Go to each recitation. Lectures aren't essential but useful to a degree. Reading the book and solving the chapter problems is the most important thing.
