To do well on this class you must know how to do everything he teaches you on the board in the snap of a finger. On the test he doesn't seem to give you enough time unless you can answer everything quickly. So practice as much HW problems as possible. If you get stuck on a problem just go to the next one otherwise you will run out of time.

He's a great teacher but many students didn't pass. If you want to pass his class this is what you need to do: 1) know everything on the pretest in beginning of semester. 2) write everything he puts on the board and vocab word. He will test you on all problems he does in class. 3) practice as many HW as yo can. If you do this you'll pass.

Jerris is an excellent accounting teacher. Take his class if you want to LEARN. He teaches well and explains things better than the book does. If you're smart and used to doing the bare minimum don't underestimate this class. It WILL take WORK but you can pass, get a good grade and learn if you try hard. 3 tests, 1 paper, no room for slack.

Those who say his exams are like CPA, probably never opened or tried to do CPA book problems. Professor Jerris is great. He explains concepts very well and clear. The exams are not that hard at all. They are just like the homework,except first exam. For the first exam you MUST be extremely confident with accruals and defferals.

This guy is awesome but hard to get an A! I got a B+ but learned alot from him. Expect lots of hw and he will tell you how to succeed in his class! He is not for lazy students! He will prepare you for CPA exam. So take him if you want to learn! His exams are CPA like and based mostly on extra problems. Vocabs depend if you read and listen to him.

Clear lectures, answer questions, taught well, but hard exams. I am taking this class with another professor as my second attempt, and I believe I am doing well with that other professor because I had Jerris as my Acct 301 professor before.

GO TO CLASS, STUDY EARLY, GO TO OFFICE HOURS. YOU HAVE QUESTION? ASK! Or else you will fail... He is the best accounting teacher I ever had, I actually learned in his class. I cruised through 100 & 101. No joke this guy will destroy you. First test study 101. 2nd test two packets, 1 hour, covers EVERYTHING, numbers range in the thousands to calc

By far the best accounting professor I've had. Even though I barely scraped by with a C (because of the sheer amount of material there was), but his lectures were more clear and concise than any other professor I've had. For those taking his class, be prepared for 3 hard exams and a 10 page research paper.

Great lecturer however his grading scale, test structure, and 10 page paper which is a LOT of work considering it's only 10% of your grade sets most students up for failure. Material=Medium, Class design=HARD. There is no room for error with Jerris, you may learn the material and still not pass. Only three test with a LOT of material for each...

Jerris is one of the BEST at teaching accounting concepts. He is crystal clear and always gives opportunities for students to ask questions. His first exam was a killer though... more than half of the class withdrew afterwards. Study EVERY problem in the book and study for days. It is no joke!!

He is the greatest professor in my all accounting classes. He gives clear explanation on every topic. His lectures are very helpful and interesting. Some people say he does not follow the book. My opinion is that his own methods, for example, pension and cash flow, are much easier than the textbook. Remember to buy a CPA review book!!I took 302/501

Jerris is really good at making his class engaging. He teaches the materials very well. The downside with Jerris is that he expects you to know every single small details. His tests are extremely hard. He was very discouraging and told me I shouldn't be an acct major because I scored low on my 1st exam. This was my 1st acct course.

One note, he has never been a practicing accountant. One day he accused a guy of being hung-over and singled him out in class, the guy said he had a cold. Also, Jerris seemed too preoccupied with the condition of his state pension fund than actually teaching the material. He always answered questions from girls, but tried to intimidate the guys.

His lectures are clear and helpful in understanding the subject. The homework problems help but you have to do them many times over if you want to do well in the exam. The exams are difficult, he doesnt curve or give EC. I felt his exams were very close to what the CPA exam has.

Great accounting professor. He explained the topics very clear and organized, he often talked about his philosophy in jokes. But you should be very good at accounting principles to go through his class.

He is a good teacher but hard. I like his teaching style because he go over problems in class which not much professor will do for ACCT. His test are extremely hard, but lecture are very helpful. He is a very convincing person.Take him if u really want to learn accouting or if u like challange.

Great professor, unfair reviews. You get what you give. He enjoys teaching and wants students to learn. You must do your part: read the book, review the lecture notes, do the homework, ask questions. He welcomes constructive feedback and actually implements them! He posted all lecture notes online the day after our class requested them.
