Hey guys,

I wanted to ask your opinion on starting this coursera MOOC on financial modelling. I have no background in the area, since I am a law grad trying to pivot into finance. I expect to have some asset management/pwm interviews in 2019. Do you think this course would help me enough or is it too basic? Any alternative suggestions maybe?

Thanks in advance

i wouldnt pay for that.

I had zero knowledge and was not a finance major in college. You want: http://pages.stern.nyu.edu/~adamodar/
all free, the best guy in the business, mba and undergrad, all the notes, lecture videos, etc. How NYU allows him to do this who knows but you can literally build your own MBA program with it all and start with having zero financial knowledge

Those courses can't hurt, if that's the route you want to take. Vandelay Industrys is right though, Damodaron is the best you can ask for. A lot of Finance professors at schools other than NYU use his material.

I personally think the Wall Street Prep online material is pretty solid.
