    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course covers the fundamentals of financial management. I do not think this class should be a requirement unless you have already taken and passed with a C+ or higher in Accounting I and College Algebra. I say this because numerous amounts of students entered Dr. David Bull’s FINA310 class and had no idea how to calculate simple algebra, didn’t know what PEMDAS was, and didn’t know the additional functions on the scientific calculator. There will be setbacks in FINA310 by not knowing pre-requisite’s coursework. The instructor can only help so much, mainly those who already know the knowledge needed to progress in class. It is not his duty to re-teach students the basic math skills. I was pleased with the instructor and his delivery of the course. But there were certain students whose setbacks caused numerous disruptions and the instructor got tired of teaching things repetitively.

    Course highlights:

    The best things I learned in this class was discounting, compound interest, time value of money, rule of 72, and present and future value interest factors. Now I am wiser in my own financial investing, personal banking, and daily purchasing. I use this knowledge to also help my family members who don’t know how to manage money well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to be successful in FINA310 you must remember math skills from previous math courses. You must come to class prepared to learn with all the needed materials and handouts. If you are having trouble understanding in class, ask the instructor to further explain or break down the portion you are having difficulty with. If you are still not grasping the lesson, don't hold everyone else behind, seek tutoring or ask further questions after class if time permits. I found it helpful to ask another student who excelled in math for assistance after class. Whatever you do, just don’t quit! Continue to come to class, take good notes, and make a friend or 2 that will help you stay on top of things in class.
