"Respected by students" "Tough Grader"

Graybeal is quite disorganized sometimes. she assigns extra work, and her exams are poorly worded and ambiguous. But she's a great person. She's very knowledgeable, makes herself available 247 to meet with students and help... and you can tell she really cares about students. She's not perfect but she's a good teacher. She has my recommendation.

"Hilarious" "Papers? More like novels"

Likes to badmouth finance people, when in reality finance is very closely related to accounting. There is the option to take this course as a Finance Elective and get credit to graduate with a Finance degree. Up until 2012 people used to double major in accounting and finance. Avoid taking this class during summer A, I did. Take summer C or D notA

In my opinion, she explains the material really well. She is always willing to help students both inside and outside of the classroom. I will be finishing my undergraduate soon, and she is one of the best professors I have encountered.

Awesome teacher. Very helpful, very fair, and always willing to meet with students one on one for extra help. The course is very difficult though, but its the material that makes it difficult, not the teacher. Accounting is not easy!

Professor Graybeal is the most helpful, and clear teacher on this subject. I have learned so much from her already--have not even completed the class, but can tell if you want to actually "learn" the accounting process this is the professor to choose. Also, she gives real world examples without divulging private client information.

Tough teacher but also tough subject. Ms. Graybeal is worth the time and effort she challenges you with. If you don't get the foundation you'll never get the rest!

While I have no doubt she's a competent and experienced accountant, she leaves very much to be desired as a teacher. Though she certainly knows what she's talking about from a career perspective, her teaching ability is very limited, and she'd be better off where she was before. I truly cannot recommend her to anyone, there's better choices.

I was very hesitant to take her reading prior comments. I'm glad I didn't listen! Prof Graybeal is awesome! You are doing yourself a injustice if you do not take her. She takes your future success very seriously & makes sure you understand the material before she moves on. Attend class and do WileyPlus then you can easily pass this class with a B!

Though she doesn't take attendance, you would be an idiot to skip this class. Attendance is pertinent to a good grade! She covers heavy test material in class. WILEY PLUS is your FRIEND, do not make it your enemy. Don't procrastinate and make use of the supplemental videos on Wiley chapter sections and you will do great. HW helps you prepare a lot!

Professor Graybeal is an absolute pleasure. She is very clear on what she expects. She has a sweet heart but she is tough! She really does care for the success of her students and is very helpful. She does give you a study guide and if a topic is on there, LEARN IT! She is not a hard teacher; the subject is difficult so don't expect a breeze!

People are being unfair. Ms. Graybeal is very helpful. She moves test around if she feels her class isn't ready. She works problems in class and does her best to explain the concepts. She is an active accountant and tries to bring real life experience to the class. She's also prepping you for the CPA exam. Take summer to avoid written exams.

ACG3131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This class is not extremely difficult if you keep up with the work and practice. The last two tests are tough, but if you do well on the first two tests (which aren't very difficult) and get close to 100% on the online homework and perdisco project (not hard to do with multiple attempts) then you should be fine. The summer course is time consuming.

Not an easy A by any means. You must study HARD!! Lots of test questions from homework sections in book,do all the problems--she provides the answers.Everything else comes from worksheets she gives out-save them all to study from. You must understand comprehensive side of ACG to pass this class! Good luck!!!

Very hard professor. She had her favorites during class and hardly ever explained anything. Just simply restated the book and never taught class to you as a student but talked to you as if you were in a firm working for her. Everyone in her class was failing exams that's just not right. Take Scott Smith instead he's more helpful and nicer.

ACG3131, Semester covered 13 Chapters divided among 5 exams, with the final exam being worth 20%. Had to purchase a Perdisco Practice set online from an Australian company (Buy the supplement if you want to pass). Did not curve throughout semester. Class started with 45 students and ended with about 10. Class average of 50% per exam - Tough class!!

The key to be successful is to practice, practice, and practice. If you understand all of handout materials and all of textbook exercises, you are ready to get an A.

Shes very rude. Talks about how all of the students have received a "free-ride" until her class to justify ridiculous tests.When I started the class there was at least 45 people. Last class I attended there was like 15. I actually work at an accounting firm. Be smart and avoid this one...

I never comment on here, but this class was the most disciplined I have ever had to be in a class. Not easy by any means, however, if you stay dedicated and put the time in that the class truly deserves, you will do well. Received a B+..she really is a good professor. The grade is just up to you and how determined you are to do well.

This is a hard course. She doesn't write a single thing on the board so you have to go along with her at all times. She does provide packets with practice problems for almost every chapter. Make sure to study and practice and you should be able to attain at least a B.
