Not too easy. Not too difficult.
i would highly recommend this course because is to expose undergraduate and graduate students to the mathematical concepts and techniques used in the financial industry. Mathematics lectures are mixed with lectures illustrating the corresponding application in the financial industry. MIT mathematicians teach the mathematics part while industry professionals give the lectures on applications in finance.
in taking this course i learned about the financial planning behind the market. Ability to understand and interpret numerical and statistical data.

Advice for students:
A finance major would learn how to advise others in making strong investments, and in how to manage funds and finances. They would gain such skills as being able to establish and manage budgets; being able to monitor important financial markets and economies use that information for practical effect; and advising and assisting in important investment decisions. i suggest the student to give it a try although is not so easy but once you get the hang of it, it would make you understand it better.
