ACC 3020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

Professor Smith talks a lot. It is very hard to follow. He assumes common knowledge and it is sometimes difficult to read all the material before going to class. I would have rather studied on my own instead of wasting my time attending class. If you want to succeed in this class, disregard professor Smith's methods and go to the lab to study hard.

Prof SS is the real deal. If you study hard and do your homework, you will do well in class and also later in your career. (making 250k +/yr here...)

ACC 3020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

First off class time is completely useless to anyone who does not learn audibly. There is close to no interaction, he gives you next to no time to work out in class examples on your own, and solicits little if any interaction from students. He will find the most minute flaws in student's work to avoid giving a 100 on anything. He is half robot.

ACC 4020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Hard class but his notes are very helpful and make the class easier. Stay on top of the material and ask questions when you need help.

He is willing to give detailed help if you go to his office or email him. Go to class, read, take notes, etc, and this class is doable. DO NOT get intimidated. I was so intimidated by this class but hard work was all I needed for a good grade.

Having just received my MAcc from the University of Utah, I can honesty say Sheldon prepares you better for graduate school incredibly well. UVU students were constantly ahead of other students because of the preparation Sheldon provided He is tough, but know it is well worth it.

Acc4029 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Tests are long & hard. His lectures are monotonous and never gives real world examples. You can boost your test scores w/ perfect attendance and participation, but to get full participation points you need to interrupt EVERY lecture to share an example from your life/experience otherwise you get 75-80% by default. So be a chatterbox and kiss butt.

ACC 3020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Extremely difficult and goes over material extremely fast. Has office hours where you can meet. Attendance is mandatory. You can get a 100% on homework, attendance, projects, etc. but do poorly on the tests and it will kill your grade since they are worth so much. I really wish UVU would get another teacher to teach this subject. Book is terrible

ACC4020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Smith is a very knowledgeable and quite a good lecturer. He lets you know what is expected. The class is extremely difficult, but that is more because of the subject matter. This course is required if you are going to graduate school. I worked extremely hard for my not-so-good grade, but learned a ton.
