"Respected by students" "Would take again" "Inspirational"

Incredible professor. Inspired me to become a certified financial planner. The tests are much easier than the lectures; he does not include the most difficult topics. Very clear and very willing to help during office hours. He gives extra credit essay and curves exams. Taking this class with him will change your perspective on your life financially

"Assignments galore" "Tough Grader"

this was an online course. Assignments had barely anything to do with the tests, and he is not willing to help anyone or give any extra credit to get even one point

Busn law 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

BUSN. 2300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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

BUSN 2300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

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.

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

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!

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

Acct1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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!!!!

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-.
