AC 302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Took him for income tax. He has his own firm and he will make connections to the material from it. The class should probably be open book because it has TONS of if/that/then scenarios because tax law is complicated. Read the assigned chapters and make sure he knows your name and participate as much as possible and you will do fine.

AC 302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Definitely the toughest class I've ever taken, but you will be fine if you read the textbook. Lectures are interesting, but not enough to learn the material. It is a lot of information so make sure you understand the chapters inside and out before taking the exams. Exams have a lot of T/F questions that will trick you if you don't. DO THE HOMEWORK.

ACT 211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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

AC 302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

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.

AC212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.
