Advice for students:
If you are unfamiliar with excel, this class will be very difficult. This professor did provide many links to how to work with excel. However, this class takes a lot of time due to the amount of work just for the homework. So little knowledge of excel will cause this class to take double the time. Don't do the problems by hand, save it all in excel. It is easier to do the quizzes by inserting the new figures into the existing formulas on excel. There is two projects, do all your research the first time and copy it to the final project. Project was real world and could be a future project.
This class was tough.
