Always Do the Reading
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This is a requirement for the college of business, but it is definitely one of the most difficult courses I've taken. Definitely read the text book and always be asking questions to the prof knows you are somewhat interested in the course. Always do the homework and additional practice problems. Start studying at least a week before exams and try to find a study buddy in the class. And with Ioannis, always talk about Pittsburgh sports.
Course highlights:
The biggest thing I learned from this course is honestly how to study. I knew he was a difficult prof when I signed up for the course, but that pushed me to study more and more for each exam. My biggest type is to always be studying.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
My advice: be prepared to study. Learn the vocabulary front and back. Learn his version of the equations and always do the homework.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
