ACC 211/ACC212 
Overall: C-
Boring class. 
Should do to do well...
DO NOT try to do this course by yourself!  Her teaching is poor but she makes up for it by explaining 1-on-1.  A lot of people failed her classes because they just did not understand what she was explaining.  She's a professional accountant but a HORRIBLE teacher.  If I didn't have a tutor and spend late nights going over the work, I would have failed her classes. 
Should know...
Get a tutor.  Pull allnighters and don't stop asking her questions.  I suck at accounting but this is what I had to do to pass her classes.  I'm glad I never have to see her face in front of me.  She's a cool person but a TERRIBLE teacher. 
Student Competency: Unusually High
Student's Grade: B
Liked Instructor?: neither liked nor disliked
Overall: F
This class was entirely too hard and too much work for a 3 credit hour class, mostly because she is vague. 
Should do to do well...
Get a tutor, Professor puts in no additional effort to help and talks down to students infront of others.  She just puts out pre made power points and excel sheets and students do all of the deciphering.  Watch out if she decides to use Wiley program (this means even less effort on her part)
Should know...
Follow the pre made power points
Student Competency: Beginner
Student's Grade: A
Liked Instructor?: Strongly Disliked
