MBA 725 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr Davis knows what he is talking abt & his class is actually not bad to attend. Dry humor, but funny @ times. Outside work for audit is insane. If you have a full-time job forget abt it, you will have a full time job when you get home too & its your prob, not his. Grad students also get extra papers. Final Project grading is pretty unfair.

MBA711 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Your goal going into this class needs to be to LEARN. If your aim is to just get by then you're lucky if you pass. Davis is a great teacher in that he teaches you real world applications. If something is unclear and you're afraid to visit him at his office that's your own fault. As others have said, he's incredibly approachable. I got a B-

ACC211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

Homework and lecture notes didn't prepare you well enough for the exams that counted 90% of your grade. Felt confident on the second test and got the same result as I did on the first, a 40.

ACC 425 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If you enjoy being told how dumb you are then this is the class for you. Apple Blossom is the biggest joke, he takes off 1 pt for missing a tick mark, as such. He does not teach anything and you could put a monkey in place of him and learn more. He laughs at the amount of work he assigns and thinks it is fun to demoralize students.

ACC301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Not meant to be an easy class...but Davis will make you do the work and in turn your going to learn a lot despite most likely not getting an A...prepares you well for the rest of the accounting courses at Canisius

MBA725 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Gave a zero if you didn't get 60% on the final apple blossom case. Gave a zero for MBA assignments and homework if you didn't get 60% for the semester. Gave a zero if you didn't do assignments his way, without telling you, so gave a zero for not reading his mind. Gave a zero for using pen, staples, short-hand, having a bad day, as such, etc. etc.

MBA725 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

For those of us in the evening MBA program because we work full time, this class is impossible. The amount of time that Apple Blossom requires drastically cuts into the time necessary to prepare for exams, and it's only worth 10%. Either make it worth more and cut out other homework assignments,or require only some parts to be done.

ACC301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Very much the monster people make him out to be. His mission is "weed people out", but he doesn't stop here. He demoralizes students, tests on whether or not you can decipher the wording of his questions, not on how well you know the material. I don't care if Canisius students have a 100% CPA pass rates. Don't treat people like this.

ACC301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

You get what you put into it. Obviously, people who get it will have less work to do than people who struggled through principles. That's life, deal with it. He is approachable, and not this monster people make him out to be. If you want to learn, seek him out. If you want to be a zombie and get an "easy A", there are other teachers...

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

Ignore the review below; only the mentally deranged would think that about this man. His tests are extremely difficult and have a lot of irrelevant questions, flies through powerpoints and expects you to know it all, directions are unclear at best and so is he in what in wants. Miserable, ancient, and unapproachable. As such, etc etc
