This class was tough.
I would recommend taking Income Taxation with Professor Widman because he takes class time to go over examples straight from the textbook. If you able to look over and practice on your own time there should not be any surprises when it comes to the midterm and final. On the other hand the nature of the subject there is a lot to take in. Specially the midterm and the final, the professor gives 50 multiple choice questions to be done in 2 hours. Those 50 multiple choice you have to work at each of them it is not something that you take an educated guess on that is if you run out of time. Widman also gives a take home project where you are able to do taxes for a given scenario. This part is pretty fair because you can work in groups but there are a lot of lingering variables in tax, sometimes the placement of the numbers on each form are not always clear cut.
I came out with a slightly better understanding of how taxes work at the personal level the differences and benefits you get between when your married filled jointly/separately versus filing

Advice for students:
Definitely make sure you devote all of outside of class time to really go over the material. I wish I had when taking this course.
