Rated 5 out of 5 by from great course! the only thing i would change is to keep the numbers of the questions on the quizzes farther from the actual questions. they blended together. if that's all i can come up with - i guess i'm pretty happy with the course. thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was an interesting class. The real life examples were interesting. It was a bit tilted toward AMCs. The Dodd Frank information was a bit dated.
