Opinion: 2302 - Well Dr. Smith was fair in the beginning. But she turned out being a DRY and overall horrible professor. DO NOT TAKE HER. She will not give you the grade you truly deserve in the end. - Grade In Class:C

Opinion: 1305 - Dr. Ferguson is the absolute BEST professor I have had here at Baylor. He is so helpful and every lecture is interesting, he makes you actually want to come to class. Because of him I even picked up a minor in sociology. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: ACC 4308 - Cost - Robinson LOVES managerial accounting and will point it out constantly. We had four tests and a final which isn't unusual for the accounting core. He requires you to purchase his notes packet from the bookstore which I was mad about at first but I thought it was more helpful than what friends in other classes had because it meant you didn't have to spend the entire class taking notes. Our homework was also different from other classes because they used Connect to do online homework and we had problems to work out from the notes as a group which I feel helped me to learn more as well as to improve in Excel skills. Tests are pretty hard - he made a comment every time questioning why we didn't have a 90 average (averages were about 78-82) but the final test average was around a 90. To study I recommend going through ALL the notes you've done in class and working out every single problem at least twice. He does point out in class they types of problems that will be work-out on the test so that was useful in studying. Not super helpful in office hours - he usually suggests you talk to people in your group to find the answer but sometimes he will help. The departmental final was hard - our class average was a 77 and I can't speak to what Burney's class average was. Robinson isn't a bad choice for this class. Lots of homework but it helps you to learn the material and he's really passionate about the subject. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: ACC 4330 (Audit) - I loved having Dr. Thomas. Sometimes hard to pay attention to in class because of the time I had it (afternoon right after lunch) but I learned a lot. Going into it I thought I was going to hate audit but ended up enjoying it. He assigns you groups for the class project and I'm so glad he has you turn in each section throughout the course of the semester because it's relevant to what you're learning in class at that point and then you're not trying to do it the last couple weeks of the semester while studying for tests and finals like the other class did. Tests are hard but study the Bisk guide he gives you (all the multiple choice and simulations!), Becker questions, and things he points out in the notes. Also do the extra credit because it can add up to 10 points to your test score. He loves to talk to students in his office so go ask him questions. He will explain answers that you got wrong on tests and will sometimes give points back if it's not a good question or lots of other students missed it. He does go over the audit risk equation every class but you will never forget it for the tests. I highly recommend taking Dr. Thomas! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 2340 - I've had Dr. Ivo for four semesters, and I can honestly say he's one of the best professors I've had. He's thoughtful, very intelligent, and clarifies concepts that seem vague or incomprehensible. His power points can be quite confusing at times, and people often become disillusioned with his accent, but you get used to it after a while. In short, he is a fabulous teacher. Overall, I find his classes to be enjoyable, and I will take him for a fifth semester if given the opportunity. - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: 1322 - She is really really bad. She moves so fast that she'll be 3 pages away before you've finished a complete thought on paper. She's nice enough but if you want to actually get anything useful from Calculus and don't want to crush your GPA, don't take her. - Grade In Class:DROP

Opinion: 2340 - Dr. Novakovic is a great professor (I took him 3 times already). Now, his powerpoints might be a little long and he does not often get to finish all of his slides in time. However, you should not be taking notes from the powerpoint. Instead use it as a visual guide to better comprehend what he is describing. Some people struggle to understand his accent, but if you pay attention in class and ask questions he will be extremely helpful in clarifying it. He also improves his accent from year to year, and is the best professor to take as a foreign student. Oh, and did I mention that one time he brought an extra coffee to class and shared it with a student? or that he was alright with me turning in an essay with a meme on it? no? well they happened, and the fact that he looks like Saruman from the lord of the rings makes it all the better. In short, give this professor a chance and you won't regret it. - Grade In Class:B+

Opinion: 2344 - Dr. Long is a wonderful man and teacher with a brilliant mind and kind heart. There are few that match his excellence in teaching, but also expressing the human side of a profession overshadowed by the ivory tower of academia. In truth, I cannot see a downside in taking Dr. Long; he will leave you inspired and craving for more to learn. He made me a better person and student with a more positive outlook on life and the world in general. It' has been a genuine blessing being able to spend two semesters worth of classes with him. - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: Social World I - Dr. Zori is quite literally Baylor's Indiana Jones. The guy is an Archeologist of Vikings, and is always enthusiastic to discuss that topic with his students. He is also not very picky on tardies and gives you plenty of options when writing essays. His explanations are often simple like "the fish" (you will know what I'm talking about once you take his class). His favorite word is reciprocity, so as long as you pay attention and engage in class he will rewards your progress with better grades, as well as a sense of friendship that you cannot find on many professors. After only one semester in his class, I highly recommend taking Dr. Zori, especially if you are also a soccer fanatic. - Grade In Class:B+
