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

She is a really nice lady. She didn't collect hw this semester (she did the previous semester ) but its still good to do. She will give like 20-30 minute breaks most of the time for her 3 hr classes. We get out early a lot of the times. Her tests are hard BUT you HAVE to read the textbook if u want to do well. Her questions come from there

She is the least clear prof in Ramapo.Very unorganized, u learn nothing from her class cause she just rambles everything.does not give ans online just for few mins in class.Avoid her at all cost if u love ur self, had to take her for Cost acctng cause she was the only on that taught it,but if u can avoid at all cost esp acctng majors.

ACCT221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

If you don't mind sitting in class for 3 hours a session and learning absolutely nothing, then teaching yourself the material on your spare time. Then she is just the right teacher for you! Otherwise I suggest RUN AWAY, Professor is unorganized, cannot effectively explain concepts, talks about unrelated personal issues.

ACCT221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Gives three exams and a final which accounts for, get it...accounts for, 94% of your grade and the other 6% is class participation and attendance. She knows her stuff and she is a CPA. Do not take if you are an accounting major because tests are MC and there is not really any number crunching involved. Finance majors learn what they need though.

ACCT222 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I'm an accounting major and understand this subject quite well but Harvey is a horrible teacher. She does not give good notes and is confusing while trying to teach the content. The semester for managerial accounting I learned nothing. if you are planning on being a Accounting major, avoid her for financial. You need that info for Intermediate.

Seemed very confused when trying to explain something to us.. Not clear and always talks about her personal life. Very unorganized, horrible lectures. Too much hw (not graded btw). Only cancelled twice on us.. Nice lady, cant teach tho. Take someone else definitely.

ACCT222 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Horrible professor. Nice lady, but does not know how to teach. Gave us a million problems a week for homework, yet never collected them. Just showed us the answers, with little or no explanation. 3 tests that were hard and does not curve or give any extra credit, even when most of the class failed the second exam..Stay away from this professor!!!

ACCT411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Harvey is a mess..extremely disorganized. Her notes for a chapter would be a topic followed by a page number. If you want to learn cost accounting, don't take her class...but if you want a relatively easy grade, go for it.

acct411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She was present every scheduled class for my section...so I'm not sure what the others were talking about. Very nice. Does talk about her personal life though. Work related stories are relavant. Disorganized lecturer. I think she might have ADD. However, if you have problems, she'll make the time to help you. Oh yeah, tests are always Mult. choice.

Easy class. You can do whatever you want. Listen or don't. Stuff is mostly simple calculations with easy formulas. Tests are fully multiple choice. Gives extra credit. Almost no graded assignments (except for occasional HW).

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

Class cancelled every week. Seems unlikely, but true. It depends on whether or not she feels like coming in. Personal life rules over teaching life. Spends half the class telling stories and excuses as to why she was not in last week. Does not teach the material at all. You're on your own. Unorganized. The study guide is your best friend.

ACCT222 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I think she might have been nice...but it was kind of hard to tell considering she was hardly ever in class. And when she did decide to show up to class, she is like the fastest talker ever and doesn't explain it well. IF you dare to take this class, it's all about doing the study guides and reading the chapters. She cared less than the students.

She was abesnt for a third of the classes. Her tests were mulpitple choice and very comprehensive. She diverts from the textbook and follows her own formulas and methods.

Cost accounting Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is a great person, but not a good teacher. Half of the stuff in the chapter we did not cover, but she still test us on it. She is always available for help and she is fast in responding to emails. The class was fun and short , but tests were hard so I was not pleased with my final grade.
