He did not go over any concepts. He expects you to learn everything on your own including the calculator. Don't expect him to help you either as he just makes everything even more confusing. All he does is go over textbook questions that are not similar to the exams at all!

good guy but tough, prepares you for fin400 and beyond. this course is not a walk in the park. must complete homework before classes, participate and learn to use the calc on your own. no bonus marks, no mercy, no friends. this course is all blood and sweat

I would not recommend taking John Currie as he does not go over concepts or lecture. All he does is take up 3hrs and goes through the textbook questions which are not similar to the exams.

Good guy, he goes over problems in class to try and prepare you for the tests he responds fairly quick to emails and you can tell he really wants his students to succeed

Did not attend a single class because he only takes up homework that he assigns.The midterm and final were fair. Like most of the FIN 300 profs he does not teach the calculator, however it is not hard to learn how to use on your own.

I found John not helpful at all, exam questions were nothing like the textbook questions assigned. Responds to e-mails but doesn't directly answer questions. Expects you to teach yourself how to use the calculator (a BIG annoyance for a course like this). If you want/need a prof that explains concepts well and helpfully DO NOT choose him.

Fantastic teacher that encourages class participation and is very clear with his answers when questions arise. John will always be there via e-mail, should you ever need him, and will provide you with the appropriate help if you should so seek it! Few tips when taking his class: No laptops, participation is key, and no lectures for FIN300!

Possibly my favourite Ryerson teacher so far. He contributed to the love of finance and investing that I have since pursued. He made what would be a difficult topic for me very easy to conceptualize.

"Professor" doesn't describe him. "Answer key" is more appropriate. Doesn't actually teach anything, just takes up homework questions. Waste of money to take a class with him.

STRAIGHT TO THE POINT!! 1) Expects you to learn your calculator on your spare time. 2) Dose not use or have POWERPOINTS. Only thing he dose in class is take up questions and throws in his own ways! like really brah we have FIN 401 after we need to learn the text book way! 3) DOSE NOT DO REVIEW 4)Final exam was on all chapters 1-13 (omit 11)

Just horrible this guy will not let you copy answers, will not let you know how to use your calculator (he expects you to read the manual). He is very backwards and needs to reinvents himself, does not allow use of laptops in class and if he finds you using laptop of tablet he ll ask you to bring doughnuts to the entire class. just Pathetic

Does not teach calculator or theory or formulas. Takes up hw in class. if you do the assignments prior to class its easier. the calculator is a life saver so find someone to teach you how to use it.

He is extremely helpful he replies to email instantly. However he does not teach any theory which is a downfall. If you do all the homework before coming to class it makes a lot more sense. It is very difficult to sit in class and watch him do the problems without knowing what he is doing. Midterm and final require a lot of practice

If you do all the assigned questions in the text you will be fine for both the midterm and the final. The midterm was much harder than the final, but both tests were extremely fair. Learn how to use the calculator because he will not teach you!! Overall very good class.
