Professor Christou is clearly passionate about teaching and wants to spread the knowledge to the class. He's a very approachable if you have any question regarding either the course material or guidance. Overall, I recommend this course to you if you are interested in analyzing the stock market data with R in future, or if you are interested in getting guidance from a very knowledgeable professor.
I found this Fiat Lux pretty enjoyable overall - but granted I had prior experience with statistics and programming unlike many of my other classmates.
Professor Christou really loves the subject and teaches with a lot of enthusiasm but he definitely did require some prior knowledge. When the original section of this fiat lux was filled up he went out of his way to open up a new section to accommodate everyone he wanted to take the class.
If you know nothing about the subject before the fiat lux do not take this class.
I went to every class and learned nothing I was completely confused the entire time. You need to have an understanding of coding and stock portfolio risk management before taking this class if you want to know what's going on. I thought the fiat lux would explain what stock portfolio risk management was but instead you just copy and paste things into R and are supposed to know what it means without much of an explanation from the professor
this fiat lux was a disaster
no one knew what he was talking about, and if you tried to ask a question, he would get pissed off and yell back "why dont you already know that!"
it was all stats formulas and had nothing to do with the topic. as long as you dont miss more than 2 classes, youll pass
he doesnt really care if you do the one and only homework assignment correctly.
maybe this guy is good for an actual stats class, but this fait lux was horrible!
Professor Christou was a riot in class, even if he sounds like he was yelling at the class a lot. His homework wasn't that hard, and he teaches the basics of using Stata, if you are taking a Stats course later.
I highly recommend him for a Fiat Lux seminar, as a first semester freshmen class.
