    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is the course and professor that converted me to pursue accounting. The content already speaks for itself, but Professor Adams explains it clearly and supports her students so that it is almost impossible to fail the class. The way the course was carried made it simple. We were given all the basics at the beginning and as the course went on, Professor Adams showed us where each of these basics intertwined with the more complicated concepts, and that made it easier.

    Course highlights:

    Learning the basics of accounting and finance that not only is seen as an accountant, but also some concepts being relevant to ordinary finance. Also, we did a group project where we did financial analysis on two publicly traded companies to see who is smarter to invest in, which was informative for anyone who wants to invest in stocks.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely do the online homework ahead of time. She goes over it in class the day it's due, answers any questions about it, and allows you to submit it afterwards, but you will learn nothing if you just fill in the answers after you get them. I did that for one homework assignment because I was falling behind and I had no idea what was going on for that chapter. She does not just give you busy work, it is specifically geared to help you understand the concepts. Also, if you need additional help, don't hesitate to go to her office hours because it is so helpful, and she is more than happy to help.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course because in the business world you have to at least have an idea of a little bit of everything in a business. If you are working in a for profit company, you want to make sure you're consistently successful and find the areas where you need to improve and overall increase profit and assets.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the value of a companies assets and liabilities and how to manage it. A highlight would be when we had a project where we worked on a company and created actual financial statements. I enjoyed working with others and I felt like I got a real experience of the work it takes to keep track of an entire company and its transactions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters before class and understand that accounting is a whole new language. The work you put in will reflect on your grade. The more you try to make the information relevant to your life the easier it is to remember it. I have seen students take the class and within weeks they drop it, don't do that. Just communicate with others, form study groups, compare notes and be engaged in class discussions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course to all students especially if you are not majoring in business. This course allows you to develop an understanding of how a business operates and functions.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the semester you will learn the how to conduct the financial statements as well as understand several concepts. By the end of the semester you will then form a group do a presentation on whether or not you should invest on a certain company stock.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give is to already have some knowledge when starting this class or else it may be difficult for one to understand. Professor Adams already expects you to understand debits and credits so by the time the semester starts she will quickly go through the first few chapters. A counselor there at AVC recommended me to take BOOKKEEPING before financial accounting and boy did it help.
