AFM 491 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This prof sure knows the course content very well! Everything he talks about is related to course content, but he captures your attention too! He is probably one of the best teaching prof in SAF, clarifies your understanding in course concepts. Very fair in testing materials. To the point in lectures (so pay attention in them!)

AFM482 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I do not know how he is like in other courses, but in AFM 482 he is a disaster. Granted, the course is an ill-conceived Frankenstein, but he does little to make it better. Exams are long and hard.

AFM291 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Excellent prof, most interested I've ever been in accounting content. Goes over each concept with a lot of clarity and uses good examples so the concepts relate to us. Definitely up there as one of the best profs in the School of Accounting & Finance.

afm101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This guy is solid. If you are looking to learn a thing or two about financial accounting, he is the man. He wont waste your time, always deliver to point. I would highly recommend this guy. as long as you do your homework, this course is a piece of cake. No tricky or surprises questions in his exams.

This prof is incredible, he gives examples you can actually understand, he truly connects with his students everyone was really engaged. I really enjoyed the course! My grade went up almost 10% after I began going to his lectures instead of Greg Clark's

pretty good prof in explanations, if you take notes of what he reviews prior the exams and practice them, you're guaranteed 95%+ in his class

AFM291 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This prof makes 2A that much easier for SAF students, if ppl didnt show up cuz or read the text cuz of another midterm that week, he wud take that into account for the lecture. Def knows his stuff, explains really well- high school class atmosphere but he knows the challenging new topics (IFRS and ASPE). Midterm and finally actually really easy!!!!

ACC611 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I think this prof is more of a graduate-level prof than undergrad. I have him now at the graduate level and he's extremely helpful. I like his teaching methods. He's very up-to-date with the accounting world and his knowledge transfer is gonna be very useful in passing the UFE.

AFM102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He's ok. if you look beyond his boring he actually is a every knowledgeable guy &he gives great real life examples , the small talk during his lecture about companies and he has great tips of how to think about content. Be sure to read the chapters before class. it's easier to follow & understand what he's talking about since he use alter terms.

AFM102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Ok prof. Boring lecture, use the text book?s author?s PowerPoint, and discussion is only him talking. But you can have your midterm be 40% of the course and final 35%. It?s a easy course and easy A. But you have to read the text book before go to class and don't fall into sleep otherwise this course is a bit challenging.

His classes are quite dry, reads off the powerpoint. You will still get 50% on participation even if you don't participate.

This guy is definitely a good prof for 291. He is still doing public practice, so his knowledge is up to date. We had to do both GAAP and IFRS, and he broke it down pretty well. Midterm was doable, final a little trickier. Overall a good prof and easy participation marks. I would recommended for 291.

AFM291 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very dry and boring. Basically reads off the slides in a monotonous voice and puts 90% of the class to sleep. The other 10% are hard at work trying to earn their participation marks.

lectures were boring, since his voice is sort of monotonous. but slide examples/exercises are incomplete, so it's probably a good idea to attend. goes through concepts somewhat quickly.
