Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The professor is very helpful and will work with you out of class if you can only meet at weird hours. He truly enjoys what he does. The material can be challenging at first, but if you use the sample problems in the back of the book and work with the professor then the class will make sense and by the end of the semester it will even seem easy. This professor let us use cheat sheets for the formulas. The main concepts covered will have a formula associated with it so just include all of those and you will do just fine on the exams.
Course highlights:
I learned how to evaluate the returns of different stocks and bonds. The final project is an amalgamation of the whole semester and nicely ties the second half of the class together, which is about capital budgeting and risk evaluation.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do the sample problems in the back of the book. This really helped me cement the concepts presented in this class. By doing those and comparing them to the examples in class then that will drive the concept home. The math is not hard and you can use a cheat sheet for the formulas so it is not really challenging but you must stay organized with your work.
