ACC 380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Respect this man.Take him if you can! Not an easy prof by any means, but he is necessary. Acc is a tough major, but he teaches what is needed to excel in the business world. He's always willing to help during office hrs. Go to class, he has a wealth of knowledge so take advantage; Just ask the plethora of former student(successful business people).

ACC302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Transferred to WCU. I don't think he deserves as many negative comments as he gets. This was the 1st ACC prof I've had at WCU who ACTUALLY TAUGHT ACC with enthusiasm. And his exams were not terrible in comparison to other profs. He can be obnoxious but I'd take him again, definitely. Extremely helpful office hours and truly cares for students.

ACC301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

In a 50 minute class he gives 15 minutes of "joke of the day" or "current events". You do not go into debits and credits until week 4. first exam week 5. If your like me and love accounting for the black and white aspect, Derstine not for you. His teaching resembles what you would see in a marketing classroom. (powerpoint slides with definitions)

ACCMany Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Derstine is one of the smartest ACC professors you'll take at Kutztown. I'm currently a Senior and if you take him for your foundation courses, you'll be off to a great start. His test are HARD! STUDY! He's always willing to help, even if you're not currently taking his class. Stay in his good graces.

ACC121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Derstine doesn't UNDERSTAND that first time accounting students don't automatically follow everything he is saying. He goes too fast and interrupts everyone whenever they answer a question or ask one. I do not recommend him as a professor.

Learn as much as you can from this professor! Accounting is difficult and the classes that follow have horrid professors. Do well in his class and it will help you going forward! Learn as much as you can from him! He is one of the best!

Dr. Derstine is probably one of the best professors here at Kutztown. Accounting can be a difficult subject but he teaches it very well. You need to attend all the lectures but he is the type of professor you don't want to disappoint so ultimately you do well.
