This class was tough.
This was one of my favorite classes so far at Pitt! the amount of interesting material that was learned through this class was immediately seen in the real world that showed me that what I was learning, was used effectively in the business world. I enjoyed reading the textbook because it was written my the Professor himself. I would definitely take this class again if I had the chance.
Like previously stated, the material that was given in this class was easily seen in the real world, making class more enjoyable. Professor Atkin has a strong love for this material and cares for the students, and works well with them in case of student needs.

Advice for students:
I would recommend reading the textbook prior to lecture so you have an understand of what the material in lecture will be. It makes lecture flow more smoothly, and note taking easier. Study hard for the exams, and a majority of the class is in the book, so read, but also pay attention to the lectures and examples because they will be on the exams as well.
