LOVE this guy! I don't think I've enjoyed any class to date as much as I enjoyed his class. He made it interesting and also made sure we understood what was going on. Allowed make up exams for extenuating circumstances which most don't allow. You will have to do the work, but an A is very achievable in his class

Shakun is the man!!!!!! He's a really friendly guy, lectures are interesting because he incorporates real life examples into his teaching, and workload isn't bad, though there'e alot of reading. Take this guy if you want to learn alot and have a good time doing it.

He's a really nice guy, but he's extremely lazy. He doesn't review much for exams (which are really hard) and he refuses to go over them. He even made us hand the exams back in after seeing our grade. Your textbook will be your only friend in this class.

Professor Shakun is a great professor. He really does try to make sure you understand what you're learning, and presents in with real life examples. Read the assigned chapters, do homework, and ask questions, and you'll do well. If not, you'll fail miserably. Exams are somewhat difficult, but again, study, and you'll be fine.

Shakun wants you to do well. Although there's a lot of homework, you really have to do all of it to do well. Ask questions and you should be fine!

He's a funny guy but takes awhile to get used to. He makes accounting easy and fun to understand and is always available if you need help. DO THE HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS AND BE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO DO EXCEL otherwise you're out of luck. Study review problems and hw and you'll surely pass.

Shakun is a good guy, but his humor can take a little while to get used to. He may attempt to appear intimidating at the beginning of the semester, but he's mostly a laid back guy. Do the work he assigns, refer to book examples for guidelines, ask questions if you're confused. If you do your assignments, you will pass; more effort = better grade.

This class is extremely hard. It requires an insane amount of reading and the material is confusing. Shakun makes it as enjoyable as possible and is always there to help any student. He explains things well and knows what he's doing. Tests are hard. His humor makes class enjoyable.

Professor Shakun is absolutely awesome. Hands down the best teacher i have had at central. He's hilarious and going to class is always entertaining.Accounting is NOT an easy class, whoever you take it with you're going to have to put the time in. If you go to every class and make a noticing presence an show you care,you WILL do well in his class.

I'm not sure what everyone else is saying at all, his tests were difficult yes, but accounting isn't easy. Pay attention in class and do homework. Be proactive, make appointments, he'll be there when you need him trust me, he saved me on the final project EVEN ON THE PHONE. Pay attention don't skip class, show respect you'll get the grade you want.

Very funny guy! Makes class enjoyable. Picks on students he like...it's pretty hilarious. Talks about life stories, many of which are relevant to the class. He's the only class that I never skipped. Tests aren't too bad. Go to class, do the work and you will do well in the class.

I'm not quite sure what everyone else is talking about. He isn't funny or even very helpful at all. His exams were extremely hard and his class was very boring.

He wasn't helpful at all. Before taking the class I heard that his exams were from hell, and they definitely were. I emailed him everytime I was absent to find out what I missed and always somehow forgot to tell me we would be having an exam. I definitely wouldn't recommend him unless you did very well in AC 211

I planned to just read the book and pay attention to his real life examples. Didn't need to buy hiom a soda nor talk about the giants. I got an A on this class. I recommend to practice the book wesite material like quizes, glosary and powerpoint, that helps.

Definitely take Shakun!!! He is lively and entertaining...he makes class fly by with funny stories or just making fun of people in the class. His lectures are OVERLY simplified. Read book and make sure to do ALL homework and you'll pass the exams.

Shakun is the man, take his course. You'll have to read the book to pass the exams. I look forward to his classes; He's funny, he wakes you up when he enters class by yelling, "Good Morning Children!" Shakun tells it how it is. He teaches well and throws in a couple funny life stories(related to the subject) to keep you interested.

This guy is crazy in a good way. I had him for 3 hrs a day Mon-Fri during a summer session. I had to get up every day at 6 to get there yet I was sad when the class was over. I had a blast and I learned a ton. You should definitely take him.

This guy is a great professsor. He is very funny. Buy him a diet coke and talk to him about the Giants and you will get on his good side. His tests are not bad. If you do the tax problems and homework you will do fine.
