Tests are very straightforward... material tested is directly from the ppt slides. Like most finance classes here the textbook is not required. You will never use it, as he never tests on material that isn't already in the slides. Tests are 75 fill in the blank.. not MC, T/F, etc. Be prepared to spend hours memorizing before each exam. Not bad

He's really sweet but he just reads off the slides. There's not much point in going besides the WSJ articles he goes over; a few test questions come from them. Studying for tests required only memorizing the slides. Besides that, it's really straight forward.

Berger is a nice guy, but he literally reads straight from the slides in class. Even though I went every day, I really understand why more than half the class never showed up. Studying for the tests required repeated reading of the slides and straight memorization (at least for me). Ended up with an A but it required a lot of time and effort.

Really nice guy. You get out of class early every day. All he does is read straight off the boring slides about banking. Tests are 69 questions, all fill in the answers yourself. I went to class. No need need to though. He wears the same thing every day. Kind of weird. I rented the textbook, but no need for it. Never cracked it open.

3 test. Professor Berger is a good guy and knows how fu**ed up the banking industry is. He worked at the Fed for like 30 years. The subject may be boring but if you ask questions and talk he will answer how he feels. what you think is busted he agrees. Good Guy. ill probaly get a B+
