Comments on the course

Due to COVID (and I believe this class is normally in REAL format), you have to teach yourself. I was excited to take finance because I wanted to know more about that realm but unfortunately the content is bland. Byrd uses the same lectures from 2018 (you would think he would post updated lectures to highlight how COVID has changed our markets) so the learning material is outdated. You have a few quizzes a semester that are basically graded practice exams (he also gives practice exams but they're not graded). The quizzes and practice exams are very similar to the actual tests. There are no assignments which is nice. If you genuinely want to learn finance you have to teach yourself because of the outdated lectures and trying to contact the TAs and the professor can be annoying sometimes.

Advice

Do practice problems, there's a lot of formulas (you're given a formula sheet)!
