    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'd strongly recommend this course to anyone in any major. Basic accounting principles are important to understand even if you aren't a business student. It's a great opportunity to learn how to manage your wealth and investments (and I guarantee it'll save you some taxes in the future).

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about what differentiates an asset and liability on paper. It's important to be able to distinguish a real asset from a paper one, and this course definitely helped me manage my finances much better.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you practice, practice, practice! This course isn't difficult, but it's easy to get confused with different concepts and ideas if you aren't familiar with the material.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Arsineh is a really great teacher that knows her materials well and she is able to communicate what she knows to us. Although this is an introductory accounting course, you will still need to work really hard. The first three chapters are especially important as they lay the foundations for the lessons afterwards.

    Course highlights:

    The presentations are easier at the beginning of the course and increase in difficulty near the end. I would recommend students to sign up for presentations as early as possible as the concepts are easier to grasp in the beginning. You will be tested on T-accounts even though the teacher will say you won't

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you do not understand things in the beginning, visit your TA or your teacher as soon as possible, do not wait till your exams to go. Because the lessons are connected, if you do not understand something in the first few chapters, it can affect your ability to understand the rest of the lessons. Do not believe teachers if they tell you they are only testing you on basic J/E and financial statements. You will be tested on T-accounts. also keep in mind that your professor and TAs deal with advanced accounting everyday, what is easy to them isn't necesarrily going to be easy for you.
