    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is one of the primary business core class requirements for the UCF college of business non-accounting majors. If student's do not understand accounting, it's very hard to understand the rest of business in general. This course teaches students the language of accounting so they can become knowledgeable as decision makers. We have employers coming to UCF to tell us that every intern has little to none knowledge of basic accounting, and ultimately end up complaining about that. Here at UCF, we aim to fix that! This is how this course was created; to help students become more prepared for the business world once they graduate college.

    Course highlights:

    I actually loved the course so much that I changed my major into accounting. I learned the fundamentals of accounting which helped me better understand the "business language." This course is designed to help translate the vocabulary, concepts, and formulas into real-world situations. Most business people today are familiar with investing, buying/selling stock, and know what to look for in the financial statements if that business is doing well or banking. This is imperative to know--almost any business out there relies mainly on equity to gain capital!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly stress reading the chapter material the professor will cover before going into class that day. The helps get you a general idea of what will be discussed that day so you aren't lost during class. Also, work the homework not until you get it right; do it until you can't get it wrong anymore. Change some numbers around and see how that will change the situations/answers in the homework. And of course, utilize the teacher's assistants as much as possible. They are there to help you out, not judge!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives a better insight on financial and managerial accounting. The professor thoroughly explains the function of a financial accountant and allows to better understand the effect that will take place if there were to be a change in one account. This class is good for problem solving and decision making because it allows you to think through the transactions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the purpose of a financial statement, which is to reflect the economic reality. As well as what can happen to each account of the balance sheet or the income statement. Another major subject in the class is the statement of cash flow and the statement of stockholder equity. This was really emphasized in class because it is the subject that students least understand, therefore we went over every account and their purpose.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would read the textbook in advance or as soon as you can. For this class you will either have to attend class or watch the live video lecture because the exams are based on the lectures. Take thorough notes with definitions and examples and ask the teacher assistant for help on any questions. I recommend to redo the homework and revisit the lectures when preparing for exams.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor gives you a good insight in what accounting for decision makers is expected. The main reason for the course is to get us to think through each transaction and the effect that it will have on other accounts. It's a good way to think of cause and effect and to get your mind to think of the results that can happen with every different action that can happen.

    Course highlights:

    This course has allowed me to solve problems better because it allows me to think through the effects that could happen if I happen to change an account. It also allowed me to memorize and understand the material better because not only know what I am looking for but I also know how to solve for it.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    It is very important that you either attend class or watch the video lectures for this class. A lot of the exam is based on the video lectures and it is important to stay on top of them. If you have any questions ask the other students or talk to the teacher assistants. They are more than happy to help you and they respond quickly to any concerns that you might have with homework or other material.
