    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    I really enjoyed learning about the various types of securities, learning time value of money, and mortgage calculations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take notes and review regularly. finding practice questions online are a great way to master the time value of money portion of this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I've had to take this course two times! I'm a finance major so I needed a 'B' or better to satisfy my graduation requirements. I got a 'C' the first time and ended up getting an 'A' the second time. I have to say that the reason I got my 'A' is half credited to Professor Byrd. He teaches his course in a very digestible and organized way. He gives many real life examples to explain the material and he's a really nice guy. The first time I took this course, I took it with Anne White who uses the same PowerPoint slides and textbook as Byrd but her teaching style is different and less organized. She's not the reason I got a 'C' in this course the first time, that was all me, but I definitely feel like I could understand the material better and faster watching Byrd's lectures over White's.

    Course highlights:

    The best parts of the course is understanding how much simpler the financial calculator makes your life and all the things it can do. I enjoyed the chapter on Capital Budgeting, and comparing two projects' Net Present Value and Payback period, all with a few strokes of my financial calculator. Also I really liked learning how corporations are taxed, the different tax breaks they get, and the reasons behind those tax breaks. A very interesting chapter and very applicable to real world situations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you can take this course with Byrd I think that would be your first step towards success in this course. Other than that, I would recommend getting the reading guide mentioned in the syllabus(made by Byrd himself). It follows along with the lectures and math examples in class and has spaces to input your answers. A very useful study tool. Also, I would buy your financial calculator way before your second exam because the functions on there are something that must also be learned and the sooner the better!
