TAX 635 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I really admire his teaching attitude, his lecture can make you fell not that bored. Besides he will let you try to quote the rule during the test, which is crazy since this the first close book test I've ever heared. But you will feel relief when you got your grades.

Great class with an awesome professor. I took Dr. Lessambo for the second time in Business Tax after having him in Accounting 503. Still cannot believe how someone can excel in both Accounting and tax courses. Well-organized course with loaded practices or homework. He's Great. Don't miss him.

Tax 4362 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Very knowledgeable professor in tax. He takes attendance everyday and calls on people a lot. Just know he isn't picking on you, just trying to encourage thought and give you a participation grade. Wish I could have him for other tax courses.

I took him for Taxation of Foreign Operations (Tax 651) and learned a lot. He is so passionate about these topics and let me on my anger to continue an advanced tax class in Tax 651. Brilliant professor. Would not be surprised to see him within these Ivy League Scholls.

ACC. 630 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great professor. Dr. Lessambo is not a PPT reader as the majority of the professors. Instead he creates a detailed handout for each chapter. He made the most challenging issues in accounting easy and accessible to understand. He is demanding but a fair grader. Work hard, do your weekly assignments, you will secure an A.

I took this class as I was moving toward a Practice in Private Equity. Friends and former students recommended that I attend that course. The Professor is relly brilliant and explains the topics in an easy and accessible way. I learned a lot and would highly recommend that professor. He looks to much serious but he is kind and dedicated.

Tax651 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I'm a tax professional so this course was very important to me. The professor made a very difficult subject very understandable. Our textbook is primarily used by law school students but the lecture covers the material so make sure to attend class! The exams are not easy but going to class, taking notes and studying after-hours will prepare you.
