FIN 205 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: Not sure yet
"Lectures are long" "Would take again" "Respected by students"

Shes so easy to approach and is always thinking of your best interest. extremely knowledgeable so pay attention, the stuff she talks about are life lessons. Her lectures can get a bit boring because all she does is talk and go over the book but I cant complain, she was great, learned alot. 1 book, you watch a video everyday. Tests you on the videos

FIN 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She's a great teacher. Basically what you do in class is watch films every class make sure to take notes. Her tests are made up questions from the films and she will go over what you need to know from the book. Study that because it's exactly what's on the test. It was an interesting class! Take her!

FIN 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Favorite class so far. I recommend attending class with the book and a highlighter to mark things she covers so you'll know what to study. Pay attention, don't slack off, read the book (its easy), and if you miss a class or two no harm done but remember to STUDY (even the night before it'll make a difference)! No homework just 2 writing assignments

FIN 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is a great teacher! I learned a lot from this business law class. You watch a movie at the end of every class period and it's about law suits and court trials. The tests are full of word play so becareful on that. Book is rarely touched, and mostly on her lecture. She doesn't test on anything outside of class. Didn't need to read to get an A-.

MGMT 308 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Had Boss for Fin 205, 305 and MGMT 308. Professor Boss is AWESOME! She is very well-spoken and an expert on her subject material. She is an expert in legal issues and if you are a pre-law major make sure you take her! She does cover a lot of material but if you read the book and handouts and take video notes you'll get and A! HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION

Mgmt 479 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Lots of readings for this class. Exams are essay format and you better write a lot. The tests are not difficult if you read what she says. There is a video during the last hour of class and you've got to take notes. The good news is that she gives chances for extra credit. She provides lots of newspapers articles to read. She is cool overall.

MGMT 479 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is a nice professor who likes to help students. She offers a lot of opportunities for extra credit. Midterm and Final are all essay format. She hands out a lot of articles that will be on tests. There is a video every class which will also be on tests. There is a lot of information to study for tests, but it is manageable.

FIN 205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

There is only 1 homework assignment for the class which is due on the 10th week. It's just to summarize cases. She is strict on grammar for exams. Video every class period. She only tests on material covered in class. You don't need to read the book, but you need it to follow during class. Her tests are tricky based on wording. Great professor.

FIN205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

genius in law but really confusing to follow she jumps around a lot and doesnt go in order, my notes were super messy. She will ONLY REPEAT THINGS ONCE!! So make sure you jot them down quick. 2 major tests. If you study the book and go over all the exam strategies and multiple choice in the book you will do fine.

She's so nice. She has a lot of knowledge in law. Her tests is MC, TrueFalse, short essay, fill in blank. The short essay is from cases in bk and movies. She is very kind to her students and lets you turn stuff in a little late.my advice is to read the cases in the bk,it'll help u know whats going on (affirmative, reversed, reversed and remanded)

Four case studies for homework, one midterm and a final. She reads everything for homework. She cares about writing, which is very hard for me. The midterm was very hard......

She was amazing. She explains everything perfectly. You leave that class with a better understanding of Business Law. She was very approachable. She never played favorites. She just gave a grand 'ol smile all the time. 1 Midterm 1 Final and summarizing a few cases for HW. She likes to see students succeed. She is BOSS!!!

Fin305 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

I have taken two classes with professor MKB. She is a very professional and has extensive knowledge of legal and business academia. She is not easy in term that you have to work for your grade. Yet if you are a good student it should not be hard to get the grade you desire. Attend class, study the case and most important watch the videos twice.
