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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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...

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

Dr.a Davis is the man. His power points are hilarious and he may be the most approachable prof. I've ever had. Extremely fair grader and he never tests on anything that he does not go over in class. With the Apple Blossom Audit Case he clearly outlines the assignment and there are little to no surprises. Overall a great experience and great prof.

This class is truly the worst experience you may ever have at school. I really do enjoy accounting, but this man could make you change your major. Incredibly angry and jarring. Intimidating to say the least, and creates the WORST atmosphere in his classroom. Unbearable...

This is the most miserable man in the universe. He is not helpful and does not care if you understand the course material. Go ahead and read the textbook and do the homework but then when you get to class he will tell you that "his way is the only way, how could you people not know what I want just b/c it wasn't in the textbook.. as such, etc. etc.

Absolutely horrible teacher, gives 5 hours of homework each night that is only worth 5% of your grade. Doesn't care if you are confused or have a problem. Extremely hard tests. Caused me to switch my major from accounting. As such, etc, etc.

This class is NOT an easy A, you have to work hard with Dr Davis. He is a tough teacher with a sarcastic dry sense of humor. He does come across a bit scary at first but then once you get used to him its not that bad. Read before coming to class, take notes, ask questions.

Dr. Davis was the worst professor I have ever had. He apparently hates teaching & made it clear that he thought we were all idiots. We had to group together outside of class to learn the material that he didn't teach. You work for hundreds of hrs on a project but if you don't pass the last part you get a zero on the whole thing. What a waste.

Prof. Davis is probably one of the best professors I have had at Canisius. It is true, this class is not for the faint at heart, but if you put the time in, you will learn. Attendance is mandatory and the tests are extremely difficult. He is passionate about what he does and he is credited for the supreme passing rates on the CPA exam.

Mr. Davis is the worst professor I have had in my time at Canisius. He flips through slides and gets off on giving people bad grades. He turns everyone off of wanting to be an accountant in their last semester before graduation. Get luck getting a job when they see your D or F in his class. Hes asks irrelevant questions on exams

The class is fairly difficult and there is no grading on a curve. Tests are much more difficult than the homework assignments and the in-class examples. The course project was quite easy and is a good opportinmity to raise your overall grade. You will work very hard in this class and will most likely not get an A. ..As such.

There was homework due on the very first day of class. Homeworks typically take about 2.5 hours to do, sometimes more. Quizzes are tricky. The lecture isn't that helpful since it happens only AFTER you've done the homework already. The final was extremely difficult. Study and put your time in and you'll do fine, but don't even dream of an A.

Dr. Davis comes across as a tough guy that doesn't care about his students, but it's a front. He's a great professor, you'll learn a lot, but you have to work hard. The only drawback is that he doesn't grade on a curve and his final exam is extremely difficult.
