MKTG 446 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Gives good feedback" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Pop quiz master"

Although alot of people didn't like her class, I did! If you pass her first exam you don't have to take the 2nd one. However, the final was a little tough but if you prepare a good index card hen you'll be fine. Just make sure you know what to study. I would recommend you take her class if you want to learn. JUST KEEP UP, SHE WRITES FAST!

"Better Like Group Projects" "Skip class? You won't pass."

The word "Satan" comes to mind when I think of Susanna. She is TOUGH, NOT clear, and you better enjoy group projects. Overall, I did learn a lot .... on my own. She's the devil in disguise and I would not miss a class. However, it is all do-able, and she isn't that bad of a grader.

"Pop quiz master" "Better Like Group Projects"

by far the worst prof i have taken at Montclair. The tests and course materialbook is easy enough but the GROUP PROJECT is complete hell and she gives little to no guidance at all. Most of the financial models that are needed in the project are not even lectured on. they seriously need a financial modeling class as a prerequisite for this class.

FINC 326 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A-

The only difficult part of this class in the group project. She doesn't help you with it and it requires a LOT of time and teaching yourself. You pick your group so make sure you pick the right people. The tests are all of the homework questions we go over in class. Lowest grade is dropped of the 1st 2 exams- final is madatory.

Make sure you go to class. No need to jot everything down because she gives her own lecture notes. Quizzes and Projects in group. Very easy. Exams are straight from lecture notes and previous exams/quizzes. Easy. She is harsh, rude but awesome. I loved her class. Be nice to her otherwise you are screwed. Do NOT ask stupid questions...not here!

FINC322 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

Susanna Yu is extremely rude and loves to belittle her students. What she needs to understand is the students are keeping her employed. She gives weekly quizzes and daily HW. The textbook is useless and her lectures just as bad. Study as much as you can from previous quizzes and HW assignments. Most of the course is group work.

FINC-326-02 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

After the first class, I wanted to drop this course so bad. I do not like her teaching style, but she is a fair grader. She gives you everything you need for exams. If you do good on first exam, then you don’t need to take the 2nd exam, but final is mandatory plus there is a group project (paper and presentation). Not easy class.

"D" is for doggy, "C" is for meow...(those who took her would know what I mean); Susana is quite quirky, but fair. Exams are straight forward and nearly identical to her lecture notes and h/w. Be patient. Towards the end of the semester she had some pleasant surprises up her sleeve (i.e. one take home exam and a group exam).

She's crazyyyy but I love it and hate it. She gives you everything you need to learn. (notes, powerpts, answers to hw/pop quizzes) and even lets you bring in an index card of anything you want to the exam but you have to study and keep up with her. She goes mad fast. Overall I did learn alot from her than I did from Mezziani.

If you take her seminar class, enjoy the all nighters doing your capstone project. I learned a lot but also took on a great amount of stress, I taught myself more with the project than she did in class. She has a secretive side and a few helpful things up her sleeve towards the end of the semester. You will get through it though.

Seminar was difficult than other seminar sections but did learn A LOT from the semester long project. don't take her if you slack and want the easy way out, she makes you work for your grade..what effort you put in is how much you get out of the course.

She's very short tempered and you can't interrupt her or ask for clarification. She'll tell you to check your class notes, if she's in a good mood she'll answer your questions.However, she is a fair grader, tells you exactly what to study for and drops the lower grades out of 3 exams. If you don't mind her temper and want to learn - take her.

I actually really enjoyed this class. Her exams were pretty simple and are based off of everything she tells you to study from. She is a little fast paced and impatient but if you take the time to understand the concepts, you will succeed. Overall, I liked her a lot and would re-take her again for other finance classes.

She’s very rude, extremely short tempered. If you get a good grade you defiantly deserve it because it was not based on her teaching style.

You will do really good if you know the basics of finance,if not,you may have a little trouble in her class. she goes quick so it's best to review her notes and ppt before and after classes, she can be a little hostile when asking questions but she's nice though.

I cannot believe that a college would allow her to teach a class. Her attitude is more like she's just there to collect a paycheck and go on her power trips. She has no respect for any of the students and in my opinion, does not deserve the respect of any student. I would be surprise to see anyone look at her as a role model or mentor in any way

She is tough as mentioned previously but she is one of the best professors I've come across at MSU. She can come off as rude, but she is a great prof. I would take her again. Her 3 exams allow a note card and counts your best one twice. Walked out with an A, only take her if you try hard in classes and like to achieve.

SERIOUSLY the worst teacher I have ever had! I am an Accounting major and have never scored below a B+, but I was lucky enough to escape with a C+ for this course. She has no idea how to teach, and I learned absolutely NOTHING! Sure she gives your multiple choice exams, and a notecard to fill out and use, but don't be fooled. It doesn't help. GL

If you can take someone else. No more extra credit, FINAL IS MANDATORY NOW, AND GIVES 5 LONG AND TIME CONSUMING CASES. Quizes were fair but she does not know how to teach.

She is a great teacher, I strongly recommend her, tests are fair, she goes over hw and gives the right answers which is helpful to study for tests and quizzes. Extra credit available, you won't regret taking this class, she is a very fair grader.
