    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course mainly because of the professor. Professor Schrimper is the type of professor that truly cares about his students learning, succeeding, and enjoying the foundations of accounting. Because it is such a rigid and sometimes mundane subject, Professor Schrimper makes sure that he keeps his students engaged by applying his lessons to real-life experiences and current events. In my opinion, it doesn't matter if you have a logic based mind in order to succeed in this course. If you approach Professor Schrimper for help, he will be more than available for you and understanding about any issues that you have with the course.

    Course highlights:

    Because I am enrolled in the Media school and I haven't taken a business course before, I was excited to finally gain knowledge about one of the most basic aspects of business: accounting. Professor Schrimper first introduced the basic accounting equation that was used throughout the entire semester of coursework. The essence of the coursework made me realize how important it is to record expenditures and profits regardless of who you are or what career path you are in.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The main key to success in this course is attendance. A major portion of your final grade is based on the eight attendance grades that are spread out throughout the entire semester, which means that students are prone to skipping the class at times of "inconvenience". Each class has vital important information to offer whether it's the coursework, going over practice problems, or going over tests. Professor Schrimper even hints during the class what problems are important to know and practice for exams during the class times and he is there to offer support after class for students who need help. Another important aspect to being successful in the class is to DO THE PRACTICE PROBLEMS! There are pages and packets that are offered almost every class for practice that have answer keys within them. If you do those problems and have them prepared for class when you go over them, then it is a lot easier to understand and correct mistakes that you've made. The last key to success in this class is to go to the office hours if you need help. Professor Schrimper, like I said before, is a caring and helpful professor that will cater to every need and concern that each student has.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A very easy accounting class that doesn't have a demanding course load.

    Course highlights:

    Schrimper makes the class enjoyable and somehow makes accounting a little less boring than normal.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and to the examples he goes over so you know it for the test and go to class. Attendance counts as a test grade and will boost your grade so you do well no matter how bad you've done on the tests.
