"Participation matters" "Tough Grader" "Would take again"

Aaron Carter was right...I WANT CANDY. Bianco is an amazing professor who brings the real world into the class room. No class ends before her attempts at jokes which are hilarious. Very good professor and teaches material needed.

"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader" "Lectures are long"

She is a nice lady who is willing to help if you come to her office hours, but is better at the finance part of business and lectures can be boring at times.

"There for you" "Gives good feedback" "Respected by students"

Good teacher, helpful and makes class interesting. She does the review sessions for all the tests so she knows what to teach in class and how it will be on the test.

Gb 212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She's a great person, but teaching wise she focuses a lot on finance rather than accounting. Very helpful if you ask her questions. You have to put time into her class to get a good grade.

Bianca is a great professor and knows what she's talking about in the class. She sometimes may get a little boring but it is up to the student to show interest in the class and participate. She does notice and appreciate if you participate and is even more willing to help you if you do. She doesn't give points away on tests and is fair.

GB 112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

She is a decent teacher. Explains material as well as any other professor. Do the homework and attend review sessions and you will learn the material. However, she is an extremely difficult and picky grader. Most students in the class get below an 80 on the exams and don't do as well as other classes on the course project

GB 212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She clearly knows what she is talking about, but sometimes she knows too much. Sometimes she will just talk to the chalkboard for the entire class and it is nearly impossible to follow what she is saying. She is very helpful, but also is a pretty tough grader. She has good stories to share though and her outfits are always entertaining.

GB212 is a hard class, no matter which professor you take. But Bianco knows her stuff and is very very willing to help students at anytime. Do the readings, homework, study hard and you will get a 3.7 no problem.

The class is pretty tough but not unbareable. Do the homework and actually study and you'll be just fne. She tells you everything you need to know before each test and the tests aren't THAT hard.

Bianco just states the obvious all the time, flies through difficult material and spends entire classes on the most obvious topics... not recommended

GB212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The last post was from Prof Bianco I just came from that class & she said those EXACT words none of which are true. No one believes that more than 50% of the class got over an 80. Her grading is not fair for how difficult the tests are. Tests make up your entire grade & are extremely difficult. This class DOES NOT have to be as hard as they make it

Difficult class but extremely fair grader. Consistantly 50% of the class gets atleast an 80 which in GB212 is good. On second test graded 3 times to make sure it was fair and gave you the highest of the 3 different styles. Responds to emails, always willing to help in office hours, and has a ton of experience. Just GB 212 is a hard course.

the gb curiculum in general is very flawed. bianco is an ok teacher who will help but she is not great. when under pressure she rushes through material and you learn nothing. when she is calm and there are no tests in the near future she can sometimes be good. in general she is average at best. its hard to teach GB 212 bc the whole class's backward

GB112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

GB112 follows a strict syllabus with no extra credit. Her tests are pretty hard and her classes are based on powerpoints. She lets you have laptops out during class which is a major distraction. I say she is a picky grader/fair grader. She is picky in what she wants, but if she feels that she took off unnecessary points, she will give them back.

all the GB112 profs are terrible. bianco knows a lot, but doesn't boil it down to the basics very well. shes a very picky grader too. i don't think i hold too much against her, as much as i do about the course. bentley hasn't figured out how to teach it yet. all things considered, she's not too bad.

I would recommend her. She is a fair grader who is always willing to go over your test with you and will change your grade if she took off unnecessary points. She responds to emails and is always willing to help at office hours. Pay attention in class and you will be fine, she explains things clearly enough you won't need to do much extra.

Not recommended, not clear on due dates, leaves most of the learning to the homework that is due before the class that explains it.
