Great professor. He is very hard, but he worked in the corporate world and is preparing you for success, not mediocracy. Read before class, do homework, listen in class instead of Facebook and you will learn a lot and do well. If you are a sarcastic person that doesn't easily get offended you'll find him funny too.

Okay here is the bottom line: Dr. Alexander does ramble about his personal life more than he should. HOWEVER, he knows and explains the material very well and is willing to help if you ask him questions or come during his office hours. FIN 311 is a hard class regardless. Take him if you can.

Professor Alexander is a terrible teacher but a good guy. He will ramble on for days about his personal life while the whole time attempting to relate to finance. Needless to say it doesnt. Tests are hard, textbook is impossible, study a TON.

Alexander is a pretty good teacher, pathetic excuse for a man though. He'll go on and on about how the girls should be gold diggers and how accountants suck. Basically, you will hate your life for at least the first 5 weeks before he decides to start teaching. After that, he does an okay job.

Dr. Alexander is an excellent tutor and very helpful when you catch him alone, but I feel his classes weren't of the best standard. He spends a bit too long speaking about his personal life in class which wastes too much time and appears unprofessional by doing so. Expect a tough class, though his quizzes are a little easier than his in-class stuff

Hard class regardless but JA does a pretty good job. Attendance is not mandatory but it helps to go and you will listen to him talk about his ego about half the time. Work hard and you can do well.

Alexander is a wonderful professor, however 405 is very difficult. Make sure you go to ALL classes, take detailed notes, and read the chapters where the book and his notes overlap. The toughest part of his exams are the essay questions, so make sure you can recite your notes word for word! Class is definitely worth taking, you will learn a lot.

Alexander's a really great professor, but this is a very tough class. I was very fortunate to get a 'B'. I learned so much, though, and the material is very interesting. I studied more for this class than any other FIN class. His exams are ridiculous b/c of his essay questions. You better be able to memorize the text and your notes really well!

best teacher i have ever had. he is challenging but i've never learned so much. Relates most of what he teaches to the real world. he isn't just an academic. His classes are fun b/c he makes fun of other professors and so on. guy is a riot.

Worst teacher I have ever had at Clemson. Fun guy, but bad teacher. Tests are very different from hw problems and stuff he does in class.

Alexander is a good teacher. Makes class fun and gives multiple choice tests instead of essay tests. Hard class regardless, but study and you'll do fine
