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.

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!

Prof James is approachable and a nice person, but not fit to be a teacher. She is not organized and does not lecture. All she does is ask questions as if the students were experts. If you don't know what's going on in the class, then you are basically screwed on the project. Hwk confusing & book doesn't help.

Don't take her! If you're planning to take advanced accounting, Japson is much better.

She is horrible. Take someone else if you can. If you do take her, the tests are based on her lectures, take great notes.

BAD ENOUGH THAT YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND THAT ACCENT; BUT SHE PUTS ALMOST ALL HER POINTS INTO THE EXAMS...DON'T PASS THOSE & FIND THAT YOU WON'T PASS EITHER. SHE 'DOUBLE-STANDARDS' HER EXAM QUESTIONS SO TO HAVE YOU MISS IT. PICK ANOTHER IF YOU WANT TO PASS

She brags about all her past accounting experience in the field, and how she got only "A's" in college, and how she's so upset when she got one "B". She takes things too seriously for students who are just learning the material, bombarding you with projects. She treats everyone as if they are accountants already, and should be at her level.

This professor is horrible at teaching. I worked really hard in this class ACCT320B, did all the work, the project, studied all night, only to end up with a "D" in the class. 5 other people that I know who took ACCT320A with her also did not pass. This professor will ruin your motivation, causing you to second guess yourself about majoring in acct.

She is a very nice teacher, explains well and she encourages to ask questions. do so, she will always make things clear. read the book before you go to class, it makes the lecture easier. above all, she is a sweet teacher. Do your homeowrk and come to class. Ask questions if ever unclear, she takes the time to always answer them...

Dr. James is very helpful and knowledgeable in accounting. But her lectures are somewhat unclear. I realized that her lectures make a lot more sense if you read the book material BEFORE going to lecture. Other than that, the class is really easy. She lets you have notes on exams, so I'm not complaining. I highly recommend her!
