Pretty easy, overall.
Professor Hatton has a bad review online. Don't trust it. This class is easy. As long as you read the chapters which only takes about 1 hour per chapter, you will do fine in the class. There are examples (journal entries) throughout the chapters, make sure that you UNDERSTAND them. Don't just read them, you need to understand them. Once you know the rules, everything is common sense.
The debit and credit rules are very interesting, but if you are not an accounting major student, you might think it's boring and confusing. Professor Hatton doesn't give a lot of homework which is super nice!

Advice for students:
Read and do the examples! Understand the concepts! Ask questions if you are confused! Go to the tutoring center to check your case study answers. Even though, the tutors can only tell you if your answer is incorrect, but that's basically giving you the answer. The cases are worth a lot of points, so DO them and make sure they are 100%!
