ACCT 3300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

If you want to learn the material, he isn't the prof for you. Really difficult, confusing, and his explanations won't help. However, if you're looking to up your GPA, go to class, participate and make sure he knows your name. You won't learn a thing, but you'll get an A if you show up and try.

ACCT3300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Lectures are confusing and unhelpful. He refuses to answer questions during office hours. If you want to get an A, go to class and make sure he knows your name. Ask questions about the homework and seem interested. The only grade is the final and its really difficult, but he knows that. As long as he knows your name, you'll get an A.

AMIS 3300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is not a doubt the worst prof I have ever had in my past 4 years here. Materials are impossible to understand, not related to real cost accounting whatsoever, does not take any question during office hour, also he is definitely not a lenient greader considering how horrible of a teacher he is. Avoid him like the plague.

AMIS4780H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Do the homework. Ask questions in class. Need to work hard to understand material, but if you ask him questions during class he will clarify things pretty well.

Give Prof. Schroeder a chance. Yes, the material is extremely difficult. However, if you attend class and make your best effort to comprehend what is communicated in class, you will receive a positive grade. Accept that much of the mechanics behind the accounting concepts will be over your head. Understanding the broad concepts is more important.

acct525 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher I've had in my life. Learned nothing pertaining to cost accounting. Gives out mostly A's-B's because he has to curve everything because no one does well on the one exam in the class. Pointless and aggravating.

acct525 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

seriously, he got to be the worst professor ever. Don't buy the book, it's worthless and stupid, you will never use that stuff in real life. You get automatic passing grade for just signing up for class. You can get a descent grade if you ask questions about nonsense he teaches, so take him if you don't want to actually spend time studying.

AMIS525 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Schroeder is a great teacher. He is not a Professor that holds your hand and shows you how to work the problems step by step. Instead, Schroeder gives you lead and encourages his students to try and work through the problems on their own. To him, this is the best approach in comprehending the material presented in class.

ACCT522 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a super smart guy. Course materials are really tough, but you will learn a lot about accounting in his class. He will give you a decent grade if you participate in class.
