acct320A B Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Get ready to read" "Tests are tough" "Skip class? You won't pass."

nice, knowledgeable willing to help during office hrs. test are EXTREMELY hard but curves and sometimes gives extra credit. strictly lectures so no powerpoint and she rarely writes notes on board, if you're a visual learner avoid her class. 1 midterm 1 cumulative final, online homework due every week. read chapters assigned at least 2x

ACCT 420 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Marianne James is a nice person. Nevertheless, she does not know how to teach. She assumes you know everything. She writes on the chalk board and just keeps speaking. How is that of any help to the student? Drink al ot of coffee and prepare for every lecture because she is extremely boring. I do not care about how you passed your CPA exam. Teach.

Acct-320A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I'm taking her this quarter for 320b and for 320A I felt she was a great teacher. You really do need to read the materials and understand them prior to lecture though. This is NOT a class you can get through if you do not read and comprehend accounting before each class.

She is nice and tries to help but her midterm and final are very tricky and challenging. I don't know why she wants the student to be suffer from her trickiness. She also let u use 1 page cheat sheet but that would not help a lot cuz her exams are extremely TRICKY. Two midterm, one group project and a final. Good luck!

This class is challenging and her exams are made up of multiple choice and problems. The multiple choice is very difficult because of the wording. I understand the material and could never get a good grade on the multiple choice. HW is mandatory. She does not explain the material and the book is useless!
