Instructor easily confused. Does not paraphrase material, is dumbfounded by student questions. Posts study guides at last minute. Be prepared to learn exclusively from the text, as instructor is of little help. Not impressed by teaching style, surprised to find such a low rate instructor in a university setting.

Seriously one of the most scatter-brained teachers at western. I'm sure he's a nice man, he just can't teach. Avoid him at all costs.

This teacher is absolutely ridiculous. If you want to go to a class that you must teach yourself and read every chapter and every single key term at the end of the chapter to even have a chance at passing the exams. Sailors is the person you want. Worst teacher I have ever had. Do not recommend him at all. Tests are extremely difficult.

He is extremely knowledgeable about everything within his subject and he will go out of his way to help you if you ask. His teaching style is fairly boring, but if you go to class and read the book you will do alright. I got an "A" but I had to work extremely hard to get it. Not an easy class by any means.

He's a great guy, sweet with all sorts of good stories. Unfortunately he's a bit old and makes mistakes in class. Make sure you READ the book, the nice thing is everything you'll ever need is in the book and that's it. Pretty much a self-teaching class. He'll help you with anything outside of class though.

If you want a class where you have to teach yourself the ENTIRE quarter then take it. But I wouldn't take a class from him again. He stands in front of the class and puts up outlines with like two words on them. And he doesnt teach you how to do the problems, you have to teach yourself.

I actually thought he was an alright teacher. He's older so give him a break, sometimes he gets things mixed up. He's definitely a smart guy, go talk to him during office hours, he will help you with anything and is smart (but a bit absent minded). If you don't like accounting probably shy away from his classes. Make sure you do the homework!!!

I felt really bad for him. He tries SO hard. When a few numbers get mixed up, you know what he means, but kids just light him up! This one girl is ruthless! "Um, thats wrong!...No, still wrong, can I teach!" It's comedy.

Once a professional in the field and no longer able to cut it turned to teaching. His age has caught up with him and he struggles presenting the material to class, fighting with the projector and trying to figure out his errors in calculating can waste a good chunk of the class time, boring teaching doesn't help with an already boring subject.

Not the best teacher. Attendance is definitely not required.. he teaches EVERYTHING straight from the book. It's midway through the quarter and i no longer enjoy going to class because he is so old that he can't figure out what he's doing. Read the book & you'll be fine on exams.

Luckily I have a background from high school. Otherwise I'd be lost. He's knowledgable, but appears clueless and teaches accordingly. He'll frequently switch two variables' values around without realizing it, then switch them back, do the math wrong because of it, waste time backtracking. If you're new to accounting STAY AWAY.

Don't take his class if you don't have to. Terrible teacher. Bad hand writing and never types out anything. Just teach yourself and read the book, attendance not neccessary.

WORST PROFESSOR EVER! He is senile.. he'll say something one minute and forget it the next. Hes also just an awful teacher.. he gives you notes that are just the bold headings in the book and barely explains any further... DO NOT TAKE HIM IF YOU WANT A GOOD GRADE!

The tests are pretty hard and he is not available most of the time to help out with answers. He takes a long time to grade the tests but doesn't explain them that much. Expects you to memorize over 100 vocab words for the test in two week. Nice guy, but I just was unhappy with the class overall.

I was very interested in Accounting when I signed up. But taking this class w/ Sailors scarred me for life! He told us on the first day that after the mid-term half the class will drop (they did), he also considers 80% an A...his examples were terrible, he went WAY too fast, it has extremely difficult to catch up! Take it with someone else!
