MGMT 306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B-

Warning! If you want an easy grade and to leave class early this is not the professor for you. On the other hand, if you want to acquire valuable problem solving skills I highly recommend this professor. This is the most valuable class I have taken and the best professor. Take notes and do not miss class because everything is covered on the exams.

MGMT 306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very knowledgeable professor! Extremely information filled class. NOT an easy A but not impossible either. Don't expect to be excused early. Recommend attending class, taking detailed notes, and reviewing for exams. Virtually no homework other than some chapter problems (on exams). No textbook req. just case studies booklet.

MGNT 306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Keeps you till 10:00pm. There is midterm and final. You need to study everything, he will cover it all on the exams. He curves the midterm and final grade. The lecture is very boring.

MGMT306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Case studies are done the first half of class then a 30 min break followed by lecture. Keeps you their till 10:00pm. Not an easy class but the professor is very knowledgeable in this course. You really need to study on the mid term (40%) and final (60%) to get a decent grade.

MGMT460 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This teacher is very nice and calm. He likes to teach. He is not difficult. You'll stay the entire class. Sometimes the case studies will be boring. If you read the book, his quizzes and tests will be a piece of cake. There are quizzes every week (M/C questions). Grades on a curve (massive help). 1 mid and final (T/F and M/C questions).

MGMT306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

WILL KEEP YOU UNTIL 10PM ALWAYS! A lot of information to absorb, extremely interesting class especially the case studies, but the statistical computations were dry and boring to me. I would have done way better if it wasn't for that. The great thing is if you attend class, listen, take notes, and read you'll pass. Especially since grade is curved

MGMT306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Be prepared to stay until 10pm on the dot. Read all cases before class and come to class for lecture. Only 2 tests and no homework. Tests are pretty easy if you follow along. All True/False and multiple choice. He is pretty boring, but the material is very easy to learn. His books are very cheap and one is online for free.

MGMT306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's got a lisp and is very systamatic. Never lets you out early, uses every last minute of class even if the material could be covered in much less time. Overall the midterm is not too bad but the final is pretty challenging. Personally I in the beginning i liked the class but towards the end i couldn't stand it. Insanely boring.

MGMT306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Forgot to add that the tests are curved, and so is the class! Which is a good thing, and makes up for exams that are not necessarily easy. 1 midterm worth 40% of grade, and 1 final worth 60% along with a take home final. Closed book, no notes. Must read to keep up and pass. Practice the homework problems for Chapters 4 and on!

MGMT306 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Lectures entire time. Has his own texts; $16.50 "Cases" book is all you need. Attendance recommended because discusses cases in class, other than that lectures get kind of boring. Be prepared for cases because he picks on you. Takes photo of you to remember your name! Has an annoying lisp. Needs some effort; make sure to read and practice problems

this is like a computer class, you use a software to build models for hws, midterm/final. Not hard as long as you do the work and ask for help if you don't understand.

Lots of reading and you have to attend class and stay the entire time since his exams are based on case study discussions. Text book is really cheap and you do use it.
