Comments on the course

The lectures were pretty good, but nothing the professor provides will prepare you for the exams.

Course Content

There were assignments and quizzes every week, and three exams. There were practice exams and extra practice problems, but none of them are close to the level of difficulty that the exams are.

Comments on the professor

Professor Goslinga is a good lecturer, but she seems to not want students to be prepared for the exams.

Advice

Use studyedge. It may be possible to do well without it, but my failures in the class had a direct correlation with a lack of studyedge. The first exam was the easiest, in my opinion. The final exam is by far the hardest.

Comments on the course

The course is a relatively simple accounting course, very straightforward and basic. As long as you take notes and do the required assignments and some practice exams, you should pass the class with an A. Study edge is definitely not required. Professor Goslinga provides plenty of practice opportunities for her exam that are similar to the actual exam.

Comments on the course

(Disclaimer: I am an accounting major, so my perspective is likely skewed. However, this was my first accounting course.) While difficult, from my experience it is very possible to obtain an A in this course without using StudyEdge, as long as one takes thorough notes and reviews their mistakes in the practice exams. I didn't ever watch the lectures except for the practice exam reviews, but I found the professor's explanations insightful for the questions I missed. There is a ~2.3% curve (10/440 points), so even if one doesn't get an A on every exam it is very possible to still get an A in the class. My biggest piece of advice is to get all the points you possibly can from the assignments- they may not be worth much individually, but in aggregate they can make or break your grade.

Comments on the course

Difficult weed out class, but no way to avoid it if it's required or a prereq for your major or minor.

Comments on the professor

Agree that her voice is somewhat annoying. Watching her work problems on the board in the videos is helpful though.

Advice

Made the mistake of taking this course Summer A. That's a 4 credit weed out class in 6 weeks... Would not recommend to anyone. Far too much content in little time. It was basically a full time job. Take this class during a full semester.

Comments on the course

This is a business college weed-out class. Not really sure how people pass without Study Edge.

Course Content

You learn accounting basics. It's somewhat interesting but also it's accounting.

Comments on the professor

Goslinga's voice is nails on a chalkboard. Her lectures are okay but she has nothing on David from Study Edge.

Advice

Use Study Edge. Do all the practice problems and mock exams. Don't save your homework for the night it's due.
