This class was tough.
The professor was very willing to provide help during the course and the material can be somewhat easily understood if you have a brain for math, but I cannot give it a 5 stars because his teaching style is a bit sporadic and often left me feeling more confused than anything else.
The best thing I learned from this course was the section that involved growth over time for both financial and non-financial situations. The formulas he taught were very useful not only in the class but in the real world, and that was something that I really enjoyed learning.

Advice for students:
Please do every single practice test that is provided in the little red booklet that you will have to purchase before a test comes up. I don't care if he says "Do 1A for this test as practice," do all of the Test 1 variants and then try to find any specific problems that you cannot solve within a minute or two and schedule an appointment to go to his office hours to get him to look over those questions with you. The best way to schedule the appointments is to ask him after class. If you show that you care to get help, he will absolutely make time for you. There is also a homework grade in the class. He will not often pick up homework, but he will go around the classroom to make sure that you did it. As long as you do all of the booklet practice tests and any other worksheet he may provide, you will be golden.
