Hard class. Very hard grader, u must read book 2 before the exam, in addition, there will be few questions that he never covers in class. 2midt+final. Curve is based on hw, so don't miss any, it will save u! I would still recommend him, very interesting and funny professor.

He makes you think that HE knows everything and that he is super smart. You can imagine what can of ego I'm pointing out here.Many of the hard finance tools that he explains are not accurate (have fun discussing).Also, he asks for an extra text, the one that he wrote (personal finance for dummies kind of thing, that was never used).Exams are easy

Prof. Davidoff is a very intelligent man. He knows a lot about the topic and makes personal finance a useful and very interesting class. You will learn a lot from his lectures. Topics were interesting especially learning about stocks.Read the book!! You will need to bring it to class too. Tests are difficult but not if you read every chapter!

Professor Davidoff is a high quality professor, and is extremely knowledgeable. This shouldn't come as a surprise since he is a CPA, Attorney, and has authored several books! If your interested in learning you wont regret, if your looking for a pushover look elsewhere.

Great professor when it comes to teaching the class but he is pretty hard and gives assignment every week. You will read the whole book, that's for sure!!!!!If you attend his lectures, do hw's and read EVERY chapter you will do fine , good luck !

Professor Davidoff created the personal finance course himself in 2005 and has been teaching it since, so he is the proverbial go-to prof for personal finance. He really tells you like it is. He is tough and expects a lot of work. For those who complained, grow up! It's college. If I wasn't a senior, I would've declared acct as my major.

Acct3201, fully online. Discussion board and assignment to do every week. I mean it! It's not mandatory to do them, but for each week you do, it is +1 credit to your grade. One midterm and one final. Not cumulative. However, the exams are tough. Does not curve. Davidoff is brilliant and knows much about his profession. Received A- for hard work!

RECOMMENDED ONLY FOR SELF LEARNERS! He knows what he is talking about but his exams are very hard. Has a nice sense of humor and knows how to keep people awake(you could hear his voice down the hall)

first of all hes not a bad prof. he jus expects students to read the textbook prior to the lecture and he jus reviews and explains the key points of the chapter. topics are not that hard but if u expect an A your best bet is to try hard..midterm final and one paper.. not that hardd

People just don't try hard enough, and more than half the class was gone after the Midterm. I thought I was going to fail because I was being lazy and not studying, but ended up passing because of the final.

Save yourself the trouble. Doesn't teach to let the students understand. Run far away!!! Attendance is not mandatory. 1 paper, 2 exams (midterm & Final) If you really want to get a decent grade, choose a different professor. Prof. is not helpful at all!!!!

Great guy, very funny, very smart, does give hard test and a lot of reading, 2 midterms (30% ea.) and 1 final (40%)..JUST READ THE CHAPTERS and you will do fine, I got an A- and i read each chapter once and Re-read the definitions before exams. I dont like Bus Law but i might take Bus Law 2 with Davidoff.

Took him for Business law 1, alot of reading but it is worth it. I came late to class everyday. This guy knows everything and is very funny and interesting. He covers alot of material. Read what you have to read and you will get a easy 90. 3 exams i got 2 80s and a 90 and he gave me a A-.

Great Professor! The class is hard but it is useful to you when you are in the real world, even if you aren't a business major. He relates all the textbook terms to real life situations and only goes over the important stuff. If you attend class, read and participate you should do just fine.
