    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great introduction to Accounting, although those who took Accounting in high school may be more familiar with the topics, and the class may be more of a review.

    Course highlights:

    This class covered the basics of Accounting. Students who take 157 are encouraged to take 158 as a follow up class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The way my professor set up the class was that we'd go over the chapter on Monday, and then go through the practice problems on Wednesday. My recommendation is to read the chapter that you are going to cover on Monday ahead of time, so even though the professor walks you through it, you are already familiar with the topics and will recognize some of the things he's saying. Also, do the practice problems and show up on the days we go over them. Some kids don't show up these days, and they're the ones whose grades suffer.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Coleen treated every question like it was an awful one and seemed to have little patience. Her tests are not impossible to ace, but you really need to take advantage of office hours, tutoring, and practice questions from the textbook. If you memorize the study guide verbatem, you score a chance at earning a C.

    Course highlights:

    As difficult as this class was, I feel I thoroughly understand the basics of accounting. I fortunately knew a lot of people in this class and we bonded over mutual frustration and created study groups, which were very helpful.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice, practice, practice. I know the powerpoint are online, but really try your best to follow along in class and ask questions.
