This class is great for a very basic introduction to Financial Literacy. It gives you the framework from which to build a financial plan for your life including learning how to save, how to create a budget, and how to invest. It is not a very in depth course, which is the only downfall to it, and it only takes probably an hour an a half for each week of work. But Professor Mordaunt is concise and at times entertaining.

Emma Abbott audited this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
This is a great course on the basics of everyday financial planning. I audited this course as I didn't really need the certificate but I really enjoyed it - I learnt a good deal about goal setting and getting a financial plan in place. Take it!

A decent overview of personal finance, but nothing terribly specific is covered. A lot of the material could be summarized with "don't be an idiot with your money, save, etc."
