Fast Forward was my friend in this course. 6 weeks took 2 afternoons. It was, however, very useful and interesting.

Very good, and even philosophical, teaching! The assignment problems are pretty difficult though. Really makes you think. Would be good to have a background in solving math word problems. Definitely take good notes so you are prepared for the difficulty of the questions, and don't have to go back through the videos to fish for the concept or formula you need to solve the problems. (Although re-watching wouldn't be a bad thing.) Also, learn excel keyboard shortcuts! Makes life easier.

Excellent Course and Specialization. Clear Explanation of TVM. Looking Forward to Enjoy The Rest of The Specialization.
