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.

First it might look like she is different, but she is fair and good grader. Prepares you for test. If you do good on first two you don't have to take final. This is a plus. Don't say anything during class, you have to study yourself since She talks really fast. Study from the notes. No need to buy book. Now I think she is the best.

I had her for 326 AND 322. She's very loud, and although she was nice to me, I seriously disagreed with her teaching style. She writes notes on the board, and while she writes, you MUST keep your pen on the desk. I've never had a teacher who wouldn't let you copy notes until after she went through them. Easily one of the worst teachers I ever had

She is crazy to say the least... She is a control freak, rude and very fast paced. Exams are fair though, study the homework and notes. AVOID if possible, she's not very pleasant, especially if she chooses to pick on you in class. Proceed with CAUTION if unavoidable.

Susana has a method that will blow you away at first, but she gets better- trust me. Study hard and get a good grade on the first two tests. Go to the FMES meetings, get a good group, do the homework!! study from the H/W and lecture notes for the tests and you will be fine! Oh and DON'T ask questions, even tho she says to, trust me...

Thought she was crazy when the semester started. You realize her passion for the material. Do well on the tests, do the homework, and get into a good group and you are SET! Prof. Yu is amazing, funny, and I wish she taught every FINC class at MSU.
