ACC414 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Gives good feedback" "There for you" "Tests? Not many"

At first she may be a bit intimidating but she is honestly open to help everyone. For tests, she marks fairly and tries to give points for all the work you did. I did feel like I didn't have enough time for the midterm but she did make the final shorter. Her lectures consist of going through the chapter then taking up homework questions.

ACC414 Taken for Credit: Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A
"Gives good feedback" "Amazing lectures" "Skip class? You won't pass."

She gives out a homework list to do prior to the semester starting and this will be your study guide for the midterm and final exam. A really fair prof and tells you straight up what is and isn't going to be tested or as she says "hints". She's really helpful and is willing to slow down for those that don't understand what she's speaking about.

Acc 504 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Stay away from her acc504 class at any cost. She is extremely disorganized. Her teaching style is confusing. Goes off topic.

CACC504 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: C

Her lecture is really confusing. You need to self study pretty much. But she is really helpful when you go to her since she can be rude in class. But she cares for her student who works really hard.

CACC 414 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

AMAZING PROF. got 70% on the midterm up from 35% the first time I took the course. Obviously a tough course but if you go to class and do the homework, you will easily pass the class. Happy I got her the second time around.

CACC414 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

For those who are pursuing a major other an Accounting, I would recommend her. She doesn't teach so you gotta read the textbook prior to class as she takes up the homework. The exams is based on her homework, slight curveballs, but overall was doable.

She is a realistic professor. You will only get what you put into this course. Many people say she's rude...but that's just her warning you that LIFE AIN'T EASY! Even though I didn't receive the best mark in this class she was still a genuine professor.

ACC100 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

You either love her, or you hate her. She's really straight up with what you should, and shouldn't do. One of the best profs at Ryerson. REMEMBER YOUR CLICKERS!!

ACC100 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This course is hard itself. But if you do all the required textbook questions and understand the material, it's not hard to get at least B. Prof's writing is very messy though, it's hard to follow sometimes. Attend class though, because she gives you hints of what's on the midterm and final, and it's accurate. Just study on a daily basis.

ACC5 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Really knowledgable and good teacher! If you have any questions she will explain thoroughly and help you understand (especially if you go to office hours). Don't take her yelling to the class personally and you will appreciate her. ps make sure to pay attention and not ask non course material questions twice in a row.

I found her to be unprofessional. She is very rude towards students. I feel that she doesnt teach the content properly and teaches in a very disorganized manner. I personally wouldnt take another course with her. She is not one of the better profs are ryerson.

She's amazing. Very considerate to students and wants you to do well! These are the kind of professors you want, hands down. Especially for an Accounting course, which at times has its struggles. However, she tends to go fast. She's by your side. Take her!!

Such a helpful prof! She's pretty enthusiastic about teaching accounting which is almost mandatory for a 2 hour accounting seminar at 8AM. She never takes you by surprise so take notes when she tells you what will be on the exams and midterms. She does a great job explaining the content!

ACC100 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

One of the better profs I have had. I was very nervous about taking this course but Julie made easy to understand. She was somewhat rude at times but only because students would disrespect her by walking in late, walking in front of her while lecturing, being on their phones the wholle class, and not completing the homework. Loved her!

ACC4b0 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

One of the better profs who teaches this course. Provides hints/details about what to expect on mid-term and final. Its highly encouraged to actually do the work and bring questions to class as she is very helpful and resourceful. Has an uncanny sense of humour which keeps lectures interesting.
