    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Information systems are becoming more and more vital in our increasingly technological world. Professor Phinney is concise, and detailed about the information being taught, so that it is easy to understand even for someone who is not good with computers at all (me). The "textbook" is actually 5 smaller books that are required for the tests, but the information can be found on quizlet so I stopped buying the books after the first test!

    Course highlights:

    The class has a multitude of assignments, that can be completed with assistance from a step-by-step video if you do not understand what to do next. The knowledge I gained from this class will help me far into my career, and has taught me to love excel and use it to it's maximum potential rather than being intimidated by it. You also complete a large project toward the end, where you build your own website, I still use this website to showcase my HTML coding skills to interviewers (yes, she teaches you to code, and it's not as hard as you think!).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class, focus with the intent of retaining the information being taught. I can promise it will be useful later on. Do the homework early, so that if you have trouble you can always go to the TA's for additional help. Study key facts for the test, she does not ask anything tricky, very direct and fact based questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is an amazing at getting some Microsoft excel experience under your belt. There are excel assignments weekly that can get pretty challenging but overall the class is extremely beneficial, and I feel like it should be a requirement for everyone.

    Course highlights:

    I constantly felt extremely up to date with technology and our evolving world of IT. Information Technology is our future. Every lecture we read some highlights of the Wall Street Journal and overall felt so in touch with the business world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    ATTEND CLASS. Phinney asks questions on the test about what color her blouse was on a specific day. Attending all lectures is to your benefit.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Being a Marketing major at Mays, this course is required, but I would have taken it regardless. This class prepares you for the fast paced business world by also giving you insight and practice in the advanced sections of Excel and Access. Professor Phinney also gives you great information that you wouldn't get from anyone else.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were that it really pushes you to practice and retain what you learn rather than just straight memorization. The way the course does this is through a resource called Prometheus which teaches, gives you assignments and grades you on all things excel and access. I learned several valuable bits of information on all of the shortcuts and resources that the two programs offer you.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is not an easy A in most aspects, but what you learn is valuable. Though it was tough at the time, it really helped me gain insight into the business world. I learned things that I am utilizing in classes now and in the future.
