Reviews and tips for 25620

Very tough subject, but a good lecturer.

Anonymous, Semester 2, 2017

Such a useful and relevant subject if you're studying finance. I thoroughly enjoyed it! But If you're looking for an easy finance elective then this is not the subject for you. It's a subject that requires a lot of practice and study in order to do well. But with the right amount of dedication and practice, a D/HD is achievable. Concepts can be tricky but doable with repetition - do all the extra tutorial questions. The self assessment quizzes help as well. The lecturer Vinay Patel is seriously awesome!!! He explains concepts very well in a simple, clear manner and it is clear that he genuinely cares about his students' success in the subject. Prepare early and hard for the midsem and final. The group assignment is not too hard but make sure you get a good group because it's a lot of work.

Derivative is always the tough subjects even for the student with solid fondation of financial knowlege, to survive, the combined knowledge from mathematics, finance and economics were assumed.

Derivative Securities is a must-do subject if you want to land a Finance job, or you want to really gain a deep understanding of how the market works. Not when you just want to get an easy elective. There's quite a bit of Math to do, however as long as you understand the core theories, you would be fine. Exam and quiz are not too hard as long as you attend lectures/tutorials and do pracs
