Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class greatly helped me develop a general understanding of the very basics of finance. Professor Filante provides ample real life examples in order to make sure the students understand the material.
I learned how to value a bond, the players involved in the financial intermediary network, how macro factors could affect everything and to what degree it is affected, and the basics of what a portfolio is.

Advice for students:
Take notes, and lots of them. The tests are derived directly from the notes. Then study the notes every day. Even if it's just re-reading them to get a better understanding.
