2 one page group reports, 2 midterms, and 1 final. ALL exams are cumulative. You will find questions from E1 in E2 & so on. Exams are based on chapter problems he assigns (he provides the answers to them). He curves. Writes lectures on the board. Explains things fairly well. He is a little mean/rude, sarcastic, and will ignore you.

No helpful, the exams are not from the lecture, you have to study youself. He just doesn't seem to care.

Took him for 173A. The "sample" exams are going to help you A LOT he literally will take the same questions and put it on there. But then the final was really hard just try hard on the midterms take advantage of extra credit and you should pas. He doesn't like to answer questions though kinda just rambles on.

Don't take this professor. His class is pretty boring and he doesn't have anything to teach. You basically don't learn anything new in this class.

Hard to understand what's not to like about Reza. The project is way easier compared to Pagani. I just attended most of the classes and read the chapters, then i passed. Didn't even look at the homework problems. If you are just looking for a class to regurgitate info on tests then this is not for you.

This teacher is not easy, however he is more than willing to help you if you need it. He teaching style is more of a discussion, where students should come knowing the material. His exams are hard, but he curves based on an average of a C. Lastly, he used exam one questions on exam 2, and final.

He is a very good professor who loves to deliver his knowledge and experience to students. His exams are very hard but all are from his lectures. Just pay attention to his lectures and take note carefully. Do not need the book but the book is very helpful if you want to learn some definitions. Recommend to take him.

I enjoy studying in his class. He's always open for discussions. I like the atmosphere- very open and friendly. Tests are not hard. You can get an A easily if you spend a little time on the assigned HW and scan through the book. Study whatever he teaches in class. That's enough for an A.

I definitely would not recommend this instructor. He teaches something else, and the tests are different than what he teaches. His midterms and finals were difficult. I really don't like his teaching style.

This professor is the most boring and worst professor I have out of all my classes right now. The rest of my finance professors are interesting. The way they teach the material makes you actually stay focused and keeps you in tune. This guy is horrible. Take someone else if you can. He looks lost most of the time or is always correcting himself.

If you want to learn some thing important about finance, please take him. He has a Versatile knowledge with practical experience which most profs lack in SJSU. He uses the last 20-30 minutes to tutor those who have any questions. Exams are not hard if you understand the concept. Understand his lectures, read his notes, and the text book, sweet A.

Prof Reza is most knowledgeable and teaches finance with passion. No flashy publisher PPTs. His lecture notes are piece of cake that helps you understand what is written in the textbook. He uploads them on the Blackboard. Understanding the subject matter is very important; not memorization.

A great professor, with great knowledge of finance. I would not say the class is easy but its not hard either. He will help you in his office hours like anything, will be clear on whats going to be in the exams, curves and tries to help. However, reading the book is must as most of the test depends on the reading. Recommended.

He's actually not a bad teacher. He really tries to make sure everyone understands the material before he moves on. He'll even go as far as to waste class time to answer questions. There were 2 tests and a final, which were all pretty hard, but he curves. There were no surprises, so if you read the book and study his notes, you should do well.

This guy is the most useless professor. He treats students like crap, and makes numerous errors grading a MULTIPLE CHOICE EXAM! I took his class and did well on the first midterm, not so good on the second and did well on the final and I got a C. He doesn't know what he is talking about. Keeps asking the class if he is correct. Take someone else!!

60% first two midterms, 40% final. Approx. 30 questions per exam, so each is worth 1-2% of your grade. Reza's lectures are not engaging. Just study the book RELIGIOUSLY and do all homework problems. His exams are tricky and test your in-depth knowledge of the material, not just memorization.

I thought he was a good proff. Not the best, but i liked the structure of his class and his exams are pretty straight forward. read the chapters and work the problems at the end.... honestly anyone who says he was to hard must not have put the time in.. just read the chapters and work problems.. cake
