Pretty easy, overall.
This class is the next level up from basic accounting and Michael Prockton applies everything you're learning to your daily life. Interest rates, APR, all of the real world concepts we are actively involved with (and probably confused about) in real time as college students. It was the most influential class I took at FLCC and Michael is a CPA himself so you are guaranteed expert advice in everything and anything that we aren't prepared for as we enter adulthood.
This course was filled with concepts that I see every day when I go shopping, pay bills, go to the bank, etc. It really provides you with the confidence to make well informed decisions as a buyer in this marketing driven world, and gives you the power to make informed decisions financially especially while going through college- hence the title Managerial Accounting.

Advice for students:
I used a ton of flashcards going through this course since the vocabulary was all brand new to me and that is how I learn the best, however the online resources that were available to me via the instructor were outstanding. Power points, study guides, YouTube video links, we're all extremely helpful when I needed a quick refresher on a topic. YouTube can be extremely helpful if you're a visual learner when it comes to accounting, and sometimes just hearing other instructors methods of explanation can be helpful too! Professors do as much as they can to be the best professor for everyone's unique learning styles, however ultimately if you find yourself not understanding it might be time to seek out YouTube, other classmates, or go to a one on one office hour session with your professor.
