x124b Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Good Teacher, cares about his students and wont let you quit. He maybe a little redundant and bash his students when providing a false example but only because he wants students to do well on tests and exams.

MGMT 124B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Initially I think he is a determined professor who can stand for almost 3 hours. He lets a student pay his textbook which is quite out to date but he keeps saying that it is always CPA exam. Some example question is still 2011 or even 2008!! Memorizing is quite a nightmare!! 30 pages exam is even evil!! I would not go with him any more class!

seven courses Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+

I took 7 courses from Dr. Boutari. I passed the CA CPA exam with some of the highest marks in the state. Want to be an excellent practicing accountant?--take Dr. Boutari's classes. He's great! He's not easy, but he's fair & he cares. (He doesn't prepare one well for the CPA exam? That's somewhat true, but true of all accounting profs.)

Z4760 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He shames students for wrong answers in class. He does not want to explain carefully concepts. He encourages to ask questions, but when people do that, tell them this is a subject of another acctg course or just listen and study! This is awful! You should memorize everything from his text book for exam 30 pages long!. DO NOT recommend him!

MGMT124 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

"As" student comment:I would put this guy in my lowest hierarchy in the food chain. His knowledge of Accounting is very very outdated (or he's pretending that he knows when he doesn't)and useless for your CPA exam study. You will find many discrepancies between what he teaches and the stuffs from Beckers.Madoff of Accounting. That's what he is.

MGMT124B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He has a good side--cares about students and is knowledgeable. But if you have a question he is often defensive or hostile, & acts as if you are challenging his authority by asking for a fuller explanation of a concept. He's accused many students of not listening he can't/won't explain a concept in detail. Take advanced acc'tg online if possible.

XL12 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

To pass Boutari's exams, you will need to memorize the contents of his custom course books. These course books consist mostly of definitions and lengthly lists with titles such as "strategic operating areas" and "internal auditing procedures". On the exams you will regurgitate these definitions and lists word for word.

MGMT124A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

All exam questions are from his own reader. He does not know how to explain concepts in words other than those written on his reader, and that is frustrating when you don't understand how you get certain new concepts. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.

ACCTX122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He makes you purchase his self-published "text" for $100, without which you have have no hope of passing the class since the exams are based on it. Most of the info in his text is not transferable to the real world. I learned nothing from him, and passed the CPA test despite taking his class.
