ACC 117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Very strict in terms of attendance and homework. As long as you do your work and show up you should not have a problem. Teaches in a very clear, step by step manner that makes the problems easy to understand. Gives good examples to help you understand the material. Check the video assignments, he hides homework inside!!

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

Great professor, expects you to be on time and ready to learn. Teaches at a very fast pace so hard to keep up if you miss class. Most tests he allows a page of notes, so not that bad but tests are very hard even with those notes. If you want to learn Accounting the right way take this professor!

ACC-H113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very smart and knows well what he is teaching, is a CPA and CMA with some serious experience. Just do the work and pay attention in class and you should be fine. If you really want to learn accounting and set a solid foundation for it, I highly suggest you take his course

ACC117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I don't recommend taking this professor. He teaches the class at a fast pace and doesn't slow down. He expects you to know the material already. You won't learn anything at he pace he teaches

ACCH117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took Professor Colvin for both accounting classes. The test are not extremely hard bu they do require the homework. Many homework examples are on the actual test. There is a substantial amount of homework invilved but it is necessary to understanding the topic. He was always available for questions during office hours to explain things further.

Professor Colvin is awesome at what he does. If you want to develop a much better understanding of accounting, take him. Tests are on blackboard and some are open notes and he posts practice tests. He teaches the subject with such ease. Well worth the money. He is very lenient, but don't piss him off.

Acc113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is crystal clear on the subject. He tells you exactly what you need to do to get a good grade. He even posts practice tests that give you all the questions on the real test. If you don't do well in his class it's because you didn't try. He gives a lot of homework. His jokes are extremely corny.

ACCH113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very intense course - lots of homework, moves very fast. Colvin expects a lot from him students, but you WILL walk away from his class with a very firm grasp of accounting. He wants his students to do well, but he has no tolerance for laziness or apathy.

Class is not easy but professor Colvin is a very caring and wants the best for all his students. He is very knowledgeable. I recommend to learn Excel before attending to his class.

ACC117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Rarely answers students questions. Boring class and talks forever! Really hard homework and gets impatient when students ask questions or don't understand. He doesn't want to lose class time by going back a few steps to help a student who doesn't understand so he says talk to him after class but he ends up losing half the class along the way.

acc113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

very clear but not too much help outside of class...or even in sometimes... moves along too quickly....too much work to do in short time periods...1 quiz a week and test sometimes in same week. ACE center tutors known his students very well as the only accounting teacher that students need a ton of help for. No open book test too many random terms.

ACC117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I have this guy right now, and all I can say is OMG. This guy is so annoying when it comes to the classroom. The the way he teaches is by doing everything on Excel. If you don't know Excel like me, then your screwed. This is an accounting class not Excel. I feel like you should take an Excel course just to understand what the he'll he is talking about. I have to say that he is really really nice and he definitely knows his stuff, but SLOW DOWN PROF! And I'm not the only one who has this problem

He is the best teacher I've ever had. I took 4 of his classes. He has high expectations but if you do the work you'll do well in his classes. He likes to mix up the class by doing different activities which such as group exercises and computer work. I have a very clear understanding of the subjects after taking his classes

Show up to class and make sure you do all the work assigned. If you don't do the work or come to class you will fail...Study off what he gives you all tests and quizes are similar... There is a lot of work to do so if you don't have the time don't take him for the teacher!!
