Nice guy, horrendous professor. Taught myself the course material while Trippeer basically had a carefree attitude towards the performance of his students. A lot of homework material that is taught/explained at length AFTER the homework is due. Cheat sheets that can be used on tests is the one and only diamond in the rough with this class.

Simply put, Accounting sucks. Managerial is hard, this class is hard. Trippeer isin;t the best teacher either... he doesnt really take time to explain to the class how to go through and complete things, you basically need to teach yourself the material. So if you're good at teaching yourself then you should be okay... if not, get a tutor for sure!

Accounting is not fun... Ever. He teaches you the info after the homework on it is due so that's frustrating.. You do get to bring a cheat sheet to tests tho, big help!! Super boring class.

Trippeer tries to be funny.. but he's not helpful when you actually have a question. I thought the class was extremely easy and I got a C in financial, I'd recommend this class

He honestly does not teach you anything, all you do is go over homework that he never teaches you to do ahead of time. He is available for help but it doesn't really help at all.

Trippeer is the MAN! If you do well on the first three tests, you can opt out of the final. Plus, you get to make a review sheet. Do the work, and this is an easy class

nice guy, awful professor. you do absolutely nothing in class except go over hw. material in the class goes from easy to impossible in a matter of days. doesnt teach at all, no curve. hw is a pretty big part of the grade so definitely do it

He is nice buy, but his class is very difficult. i could pass this class. however, my grade is bad although i studied very long time. if you find other professors, i highly recommend to take them.

WORST PROFESSOR IVE EVER HAD. Trippeer is the only teacher for managerial accounting in Oneonta so lets pray they hire a new one. I got a 45 on his first test and a 39 on his second one. YES i could have prepared more, obviously. but he is a terrible teacher. The class is hard enough as it is. He goes over homework..you teach yourself. BE WARNED

This guy is very funny. The textbook you use helps you learn the material and so does the hw. LISTEN to him in class. He'll talk about questions he likes and would be good for tests. Tests aren't to bad if you study a lot or understand the material.

A good guy. pretty lose and funny, a rarity in Oneonta's business dept. The class is mostly self taught, but I didn't think the class was as strenuous as everyone says it is, the test were hard, bus as long as you try all hw and quizzes he gives you full credit. Not as bad as intermediate economic courses by any means, they are the worst

class is so hard. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS IF YOU DON'T HAVE TO. after finishing the course i am actually thinking about changing my major so that shows you how hard it is.

the whole year he joked about giving us quizes, he never taught us anything all he did was go over the hw. its a tough course & you have to teach yourself everything. tests are impossible. i did all the hw went to every class and could still not do it. its a 100 level class and it should not be that hard at all financial was a breeze compared to it

The guy's sarcastic and funny but most of the time jokes about students failing his class. Nothing new is learned in class, you just go over the homework, so definitely go to class if you didn't get the homework. The tests are pretty tough but do enough practice problems and they're not so bad. You basically teach yourself this class.

He's a cool guy, but useless as a professor. He teaches the material AFTER you spend hours struggling on the homework- even then he's terrible at it. He openly doesn't mind if you fail his class, in fact he jokes about it. Unfortunately the school doesn't offer any alternative professors for this class.

Really easy class, do homework. give students the use of a sheet of notes for test, we had an optional final and a number of take home quizzes.
