    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    After I finished the final, I realized there were no more classes with her.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take her unless she's all you have left.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would strongly recommend this course. Nancy Sill is an amazing teacher, with a great skill set at teaching. She can take a concept and put it in ways that make it easier for students to understand. She has a passion for teaching and never makes you feel less than for asking for help, or asking a question in class. She takes time out of her own schedule to help her students and make recommendations for their future.

    Course highlights:

    Through taking this course I learned the basics of bookkeeping and the foundations of accounting. This was the milestone that led me in the direction of my major. I love that their is a balance to everything in accounting. You know when you've found the correct answer, however there may be many ways that you can take to get there.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest keeping a highlighter and book tabs. There are going to be many concepts that you will want to flip back to the page to find.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The Professor does not know how to teach. She teaches material before it is in the book because, "we need to know it on the test". However, the tests are from the same book, which means that material would not be on the test. Prof. Wall also gets frustrated and mad when the class does not understand what she just taught. This is understandable, but instead of elaborating on it she tells us it will make sense once we do the online homework. Overall, she knows what she is talking about but does not realize that we do not know what she it talking about. I do not think this class should be someone's first accounting class. They would do much better if they had some accounting background.

    Course highlights:

    About financial accounting, I did not learn much. What this course really taught me is to go to the study groups that they offer on campus. It also taught me to ask any question at all. If you ask a small, simple question chances are the prof. will elaborate on what they had just been saying.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely have some accounting background before taking this course, not just bookkeeping. Also, take the time to make sure you know the material or else it will keep piling up.
