Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class to all Accounting students. Professor Merle has extensive knowledge not only in Accounting but also in Finance.
There are many highlights in this course. First, I really enjoy lecture time. Professor Merle uses his knowledge when serving as CFO for Weyerhaeuser to elaborate more on the accounting principles, which essentially make the tough concepts more understandable. Second, as part of the curriculum, I get to research and write up reports on the current events that I find interesting and relatable to the Accounting field. Third, two group projects are helpful and practical.
