Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Managerial Accounting is a dry subject if you're not interested in it, however Laura Christianson is a wonderful professor that makes the material interesting and explains it so that it actually makes sense. Professor Christianson lays out the course material so that if you do the assigned work, there is no way you can fail.
The number one highlight of this course was actually understanding the material and being able to pull of getting a final grade of an A. Other than that, I learned the basics of financially managing a company. This includes different kinds of costs, where to allocate costs, when to drop a segment, different kinds of costing systems for different companies, and many more subjects. By the end of the course, I felt literate in the world of managerial accounting. It is an entry-level course, so I am by no means an expert, but I definitely feel like I learned all the information presented to me.

Advice for students:
Do the work assigned! Doing LearnSmarts before going over the chapters in class is SO helpful. Doing the class assignments before they are gone over in class is also helpful because then you have a good idea of how much you know the material. Also GO TO CLASS or else you will miss the exact material that Professor Christianson tells the class to study, and that's a real loss to miss.
