BUS 320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The first two exams are easy if you study the homework problems. The final exam is not really like the other, and there is no opportunity for partial credit on the final. Attendance is required, but does not count towards participation. Bite the bullet and answer something in class, otherwise your participation is zero, which brings your grade down

BUS 320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I struggled and had questions about my exam and the only answer I got back was "We did this in class" - Not one to take the time to help his students

BUS 320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The exams during the semester are pretty easy and reflect the homework problems exactly. Final is ridiculously hard and the questions do not reflect the homework problems at all. Nice guy though, dont have to do much work during the semester which is nice. Text book is useless.

BUS 320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: C

Horrible class, he is very unclear and when you ask him to explain something he doesn't answer your question and tries to make you sound like an idiot. His final exam is completely unfair, all multiple choice questions, half of which we were never taught. Not a horrible guy, just a horrible teacher.

BUS 320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

Gary K is a very condescending professor who does not give his students the time of day. Do not try answering questions in class because he will only belittle you and act as if you are the most stupid person in the class. Overall worst professor I have ever had a class with in the business school. Oh yeah and sitting through his lectures is awful

He is a very unclear teacher. Don't get the copy of the wall st journal, it's not required. He goes over the HW each class without explaining anything. I'm assuming if I had the past tests for this class they would look exactly the same and I would have gotten an A. Attendance is required but don't expect to learn anything during class.

First, don't bother getting the Wall St. Journal that he suggests you need for the class. Second, he does not explain things real well enough to learn it, and you do the HW questions in class, I would not recommend him to be honest. Too bad you can't avoid this class altogether, but do yourself a favor and don't take it Dr. K.

Gary K. is the best finance professor I've ever had. As long as you attend EVERY class he will like you and you will do great. 2 midterms, an EASY group paper, and a final. You might hate him at the beginning of the semester but I have grown to really love him. We are best friends now actually. TAKE GARY K. LEARN ABOUT DR. K's ICE CREAM SHOP.

After reading the reviews, I was not looking forward to his class. His class was great. I hate finance, but he got me to understand and even start to enjoy it. Two exams, one group paper, and the cumulative final..that's ALL we were graded on. He was really nice and really helpful.
