FINA 351 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Good teacher, if you follow along you will do fine. write down all the problems and steps he has on the board, they will help in studying. Problems on tests are hardest part, and they aren't that hard.

FINA 351 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Never prepared for class, makes mistakes in lecture, can't speak clear English, and doesn't answer questions. I don't know how he's still teaching here.

FINA 351 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Difficult to understand, scattered lectures, and exam material that was different than what was discussed in class/textbook. If possible take a different professor.

Fina 351 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Bad, awful, uncooperative and difficult. Try not to take a class with him although you don't have much of a choice. Passed the class without gaining any knowledge.

FINA351 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He has a lot of knowledge but he does not that much skills to delivered the info so he will make you confused :) .. Even if you ask him about whatever mostly he does not know and he will never look it up online . I wish Finance department has someone better because we are here to learn not to be confused

FINAMany Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Had him 3 times. If you're finance you probably can't dodge him. He struggles to explain concepts and students often correct his errors in class. Reading the book is always more helpful than his lectures. His curve is generous which helps make up for the quality of teaching. Structure is 2-3 midterms, one MC final, and quizzes.

FIN655 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Biggest waste of my time. Did not learn anything. Professor did not stick to syllabus outline, changed due dates, and did not live up to his promises. Difficult to understand and could have just read the book on my own time. Very disappointing.

FINA307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He has a difficult time explaining the concepts, lectures are hard to follow. Definitely be prepared to apply yourself and teach yourself the chapters. Office hours are useless unless you know exactly what you want answered (ie. specific problem) I had to work for my B- and I was really excited to receive that :) It could be worse though.

FINA481 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Confusing. You can do well on his quizzes but completely fail his exams. It is as if he is trying to trick his students and make it extremely hard for them to do well on anything. Do the homework problems and you will do fine on the quizzes, study the quizzes and you will do better on the exams. 60% is a C usually. Lectures are confusing.

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

One of the best FINA professors? That previous comment is a joke. He is very unclear, there no homework but I feel it should've been required in order to succeed. I came into this class hoping I will be able to apply it to the real world. I have a B right now and have not learned anything useful. BE PREPARED TO LEARN IT ON YOUR OWN!

No Idea how this guy got any good comments. Terrible teacher lectures are so hard to follow, his tests contain material that we didn't go over. I was extremely disappointed, and don't recommend him to anyone.

FINA307 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class was ridiculous. He doesn't actually teach or explain the material; instead he just goes over example problems all class period, and then tests on a ton of stuff he's never even mentioned. Prepare to read A LOT to understand and basically teach yourself. I'm extremely disappointed with the class.

Great teacher, willing to help any of his students. He can take complicated material and break it down so the class can understand. Best in the finance department. Likes to tell jokes to lighten the mood.

Soooooo glad I had him. He was a great teacher. Easy. Don't know how anyone could not get at least an A- from him.

fin analysis Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Teacher is one of the best in Finance department. He's helpful, clear, and tries to make difficult materials easy. He's laid back and approachable, and unlike most business professors, walk around with an air of superiority.

Ponarul is the man. His lectures are somewhat scattered if you don't pay attention you'll get lost. He is willing to take the time to help you if you don't understand something and he wants to make sure that you understand what he is talking about.
