This class was tough.
I would recommend this course because it really goes in depth with the fundamentals of accounting. Since ACCT 300 is a course that only accounting majors must take, learning it is crucial for a career after college. This course is considered a "weed out class" so paying attention is extremely important.
In ACCT 300A, different aspects of the financial side of accounting get covered emphasizing on the Asset section. It highlights the first half of ACCT 101 in greater depth and difficulty. This course really helps apply skills learned not only in accounting courses but in general. It encourages to think outside the box and not just answer with the first thing that comes to mind.

Advice for students:
Study! Study! Study! This course is tough because it is unlike other courses in which reading the book or looking over the slides is enough. There is a conceptual and a computational part to it. In order to succeed, studying should be be broken into two parts; reading the material and fully understanding it, and working out problems with curve balls. When reading, because of how dense the material is, breaking it up into smaller components is easier. The same applies for computing problems. Once the smaller components are finished, the last step would be to go over everything in one piece and challenge yourself. Shortcuts help but regardless, to succeed many study hours are required.
