    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend it because the professor highly cares about the needs of the students. If anything, she actually puts the needs/questions/comments of her students first. She personally sends email reminders for due dates of homework, and additional comments regarding exams and quizzes. She makes sure everyone in class is on track to pass and understands all the materials learned in class. Professor Rand is also a very understanding, caring, and compassionate professor. She is always there for a student whether it's personal or academic needs.

    Course highlights:

    For every chapter learned from the book, Professor Rand always tells a short excerpt of why the material is relevant, whether it's through every day life or her professional experience. She wants students to understand how accounting is relevant in the workplace or in life, so that we know it's worth the time taking the class (even though it is required for business majors). I took accounting in high school, so I thought accounting in college would be no-brainer. Instead, Professor Rand opened my eyes as to how much more there is to accounting rather than just the simple recording of purchases. It is a very in-depth class, but she split the materials up into small sections to help the students understand the information without bombarding us. She doesn't require reading the textbook; instead she only recommends reading the concepts we learned in class that really pertains to real-life. Therefore, another highlight of this course is that she doesn't try to waste our time with busywork; instead she allows to really understand the necessities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Contrary to what I believed before taking this course in college, I thought accounting was just inserting numbers given to you in journal entries with very basic math. However, the fundamentals of accounting is really calculating the balances and really making sure everything within the business is factual and correct in terms of finances. Therefore, make sure you understand this concept, along with bringing a calculator to class! I also did not think that taking a basic accounting class would encourage me to think about spending money, but it does! Learning the journal entries and how business spend their money really makes you think about your own spending, and how you can control it. Not only did this class helped me understand the finances in the business world, but it also encouraged me with my own spending and saving money for the future. For business Shippensburg students, I highly advise you to take Professor Rand because she is very understanding of our different skill levels and life, and helps pertain that to the lessons we learn in class and how she teaches.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Myers did a fantastic job of explaining the course materials and giving examples. She definitely expects you to do the reading and assigns homework problems with the expectation that you have read what was assigned. The major drawback is that she will assign problems before we go over the material in class, but as long as you turn in the work and show you've tried, you will get full points. Other than that, she is very willing to make time outside of office hours to answer questions. If requested, she puts up the solutions to practice problems from the textbook that were not assigned online.

    Course highlights:

    This course definitely taught me a lot about the basics of financial accounting from the different statements used to the affects one account can have on another. It brought out my enjoyment for the work and the material. While not always easy, it was definitely enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the assigned chapters. That is a major component to passing the class. If you do not do the reading you will struggle. Definitely do the homework assignments because they not only give you a better understanding of the material and help you process the information from the readings, they are graded and do have an impact on your grades. Other than that, just ask questions and go to office hours, the professor is always willing to help.
