ACC 241 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Class is nicely structured. I got an A but I am also an accounting major. She's fast but organized with the class. No group projects. 4 easy excel assignments. No cumulative final. Just a regular exam for final. homework should be easy 100% bc there is multiple attempts. I'd recommend.

ACC 241 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Keep in mind I am an accounting major so this all came pretty easy to me. She's fast, but the whole class is straight forward on what's executed. Homework is easy, should get 100% on it. It's on connect. 4 excel assignments, also easy. No cumulative final. I got an A. I'd recommend.

ACC 241 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I am surprised by how average people have graded her. She is the best! Super nice and helpful. She pretty much gives you the questions that are going to be on the test and goes over the answers. She "dumbs down" the material so anyone can understand. I wish she taught more classes.

Dr. Mahoney is a very fair and helpful prof! She responds to her emails almost immediately and really does a great job presenting the material! Most homework is on Connect which in my opinion, was a huge pain!

Acc241 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I really liked her style of teaching which is by doing example problems in class. I also liked the tests format which were similar to the in class examples. Go to every class you get attendance points. cons; cummulative final was tough unlike the tests. Also there are 5 test so if you are not a good test taker then take that into consideration

Easiest accounting class you'll ever take! This is a conceptual class with minimal math besides addition and subtraction. Show up to class, pay attention, STUDY, and you'll get an A.

Awesome professor, but is very no-nonsense and down-to-business, so stay on top of your homework or you'll be left in the dust. Luckily, her exams offer NO surprises--she stresses exactly what she's going to test you on constantly in class. If you're studious and attend EVERY lecture, you'll do well and learn a lot.

Good teacher, although it can be a slow going at first, and EXTREMELY frustrating...the first exam i got a 67%, however on the next two i got 93%'s, it is all on how well you prepare before the exams and on how much you attend class...everything that is in the homework and on the exams are gone over multiple times during class sessions.

Professor Mahoney is a great teacher. She is very clear in what she expects and is very down to earth. She does not give extra credit but her class consists of 3 exams and many projects which total the same amount as the 3 exams. Very nice lady. Definitely Recommend!!!

She is very helpful, and is always willing to work with you anytime you need. She has homework every week, but its almost exactly the same on the exams...Offers extra which is always nice
