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...)

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Professor smith is an awesome teacher. He is so helpful, and very knowledgable on the subject. I was worried about this class because of how difficult kevin smith is but sheldon is a tiny bit easier and that is only because personally I think he is a better teacher. Smith is a great asset to the accounting major at UVU.

Sheldon is a great teacher! I enjoy going to class because he doesn't waste your time. The class is very challenging but his enthusiasm about the subject makes class likable. The tests are HARD! Study and stay up to date on all the stuff and you should do ok. I wish we had more professors like him at uvu.

I think he is my favorite professor, i'm not just saying that. He is an accountant that knows how to teach. I don't think any other prof could teach the material that he teaches as well as he does. There is one draw back, I don't know if it's the material or his voice but sometimes people fall asleep in class.

Tests are no surprise the are on what he teaches. You have to come to class and you have to study. Gives examples in class that really do help. He is willing to help meaning he cares, while not a teddy bear he will met with you and help you succeed.

Great instructor; always punctual and focus. Always responded email and phone calls timely. Explained class and repeated concepts when they were not clear. His exams were very fair according to his teachings. He is a great teacher if you are a great student.

Always prepared. Organized. Fair. It is a constant lecture each class, needs to allow for more class discussion but there is a lot of material to cover in one semester. Use his handouts to prepare for exams, very helpful. Willing to meet with students and wants you to succeed, but expects you to work hard.

Speaks in monotone and takes roll everyday. If you miss class he will lower your grade. He is very boring and needs to learn how to fluctuate his voice. He is hard!
