FIN 416 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Hybrid honors version, Spring 2013. Keep up with the homework; there's no deadlines throughout the semester, so you have to be self-motivated. Notes in class are pretty jumbled, and it is hard to learn much in this class without thinking big picture. Test problems use the concepts, so questions might be something you've only covered theoretically.

FIN 415 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This was for the hybrid class. Keep up with the videos and take excellent notes. The final is most of the grade 60-100%. Take the "optional" midterms; they help you do well on the final, and they take the burden off of a 90% weighted final if you do well. Do the partial recaps; they are great for studying the many short answer questions.

FIN415 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class is all about understanding the material. Take rigorous notes and write down everything he says, even if it seems trivial. Try not to miss class. Rewrite your notes and take the practice exams and you should be okay. It's not easy but he does give all answers to exams in class, it's just whether or not you wrote them down.

FIN701 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Bill Beedles is the best professor I've ever had. He is very rigorous but if you study and internalize the material you can do well. His questions are NOT obvious and require actual understanding. If you don't like rote learning, this is the class for you. But be ready, because it's NOT just repeating facts.

fin415 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Bill Beedles ranks as one of the top teachers in KU's B-chool. FIN415 is definitely not a cake walk but you will learn soo much from his class. He does his best to keep students engaged in class. I loved having him and would hirely reccommend him to anyone willing to actually exert some effort and get to learn from one of KU's best.
