discussion forum in 4 reviews

Check the discussion forum for week 3, everybody seems stuck.I was really looking forward to this course, but unfortunately it has been a complete waste of time.

Also, active participation in the discussion forum is healthy and appreciated from mentors.

The discussion forum is similar to the summary I have written here.

The Prof just spends minutes reading out numbers up to the 2nd decimal from the slides without any explanations as to how to implement it.

Good attempt .. expect more examples and clarity .. reading out slides is not the best teaching method .. Good course for trading basics.

It is too much of just reading what is on slide and no explaining whatsoever.

The instructor is just reading the numbers from the slides without explaining any formulas properly.

additional resources in 2 reviews

There should be additional resources which include questions about the material because the questions in between the lectures were very easy and irrelevant in my opinion.

These additional resources I mention, should have questions and answers with lengthy explanations so that one can get a better picture of what we are learning.
