Comment: Toughest class I've taken at Cal thus far. Professor Bhandari really challenged me to think critically. A LOT of reading, but we did not have any papers. Two midterms, one final. He didn't try and trip us up on the exams, all were fair.. He was really helpful in telling us what we needed to study. Concepts can be a little hard to grasp sometimes though.

Comment: His lectures are hard to follow (no slides, or slides don't match with what he is saying) but if you pay attention they can be super helpful for the tests. He is also very willing to help with your essays during office hours.

Comment: Excellent Class. Probably the most helpful and enthusiastic professor I have ever had. You will read a ton. You will read dense material. You will be smarter because of it.

Comment: Lecture has nothing to do with reading which has nothing to do with the exams. DO NOT take this course if you are not in love with Marx/Ingham etc. Bhandari is very excited about the course, and thus speaks a mile a minute but spends most of the time explaining his pet theories and what the finance industry should have done. Lecture is pretty much a waste of time, and unless you are very good at extracting meaning from the (dry, dense and boring) text, (again) DO NOT TAKE THIS COURSE!

Comment: This class was extremely interesting and professor Bhandari did a great job of getting students involved. My favorite professor at cal so far. A lot of reading required and a few essays. (Apparently this is a lighter semester than usual). He is very helpful if you talk to him!
