Good professor. Her tests are fair, there are no surprises (I enjoyed her tests after taking Ravetch). For midterm, I did all the homework problems she assigned and read over her course reader (important) and got 98.5 (including extra credit).

Group project was a pain in the ass though, my only advice is to start early so you are not so stressed in the end. But she's actually very lenient on the grading.

Final: studied 2 days before, got an A.

I think it's pretty easy to get an A in this class as long as you're not stupid (for reference, I got a C in Ravetch).

DO NOT EVER TAKE MGMT 120A WITH HIM! Just wait until your next quarters to find better professor to teach you Intermediate Financial Accounting. You will never be ready for your exams, although he is pretty nice by having extra office hours before the quizzes and final. You will not understand anything about the material, and now I don't know if I should continue to MGMT 120B or not because I feel like I don't learn anything for the past 10 weeks with him. Even, accounting materials from Youtube are more helpful than him. He is actually a very nice guy who is willing to help his students, but I don't think he is capable of being a lecturer despite of his amazing career outside of the academic world (former hedge fund manager etc)

Professor Lu was one of the best Professors I have ever had. He always wants his students to succeed. His lectures were super clear to understand and he gave great examples that made the class very enjoyable. You will do great in his class if you study, do the homework, follow his notes and come to class. By far one of the best professors you will have. I recommend taking him!

Natarajan was a GREAT professor!!! He explained everything very clearly and also posted lecture notes online so that you don't even have to read the book. He also gives out homework problem solutions and practice tests with solutions. He really tries to prepare you for his tests. His tests were very fair and straightforward. He really tries to test you on what you learned in the class, instead of trying to trick you. If you attend lecture, read the lecture notes, and do the homework problems, you'll do well on his tests, unlike Ravetch where you study like crazy and still get a bad grade. I really recommend him for 120A!

Individually, the in-class topics and the group projects were very helpful and insightful. I definitely learned a lot in this class. Overall though, I felt like it was poorly designed. You spend so much time trying to figure out the homework and group work that you have no time to absorb and review the class topics, which are very different. Furthermore, there is not much time to go over the homework and group work, so you often end up making the same mistakes on subsequent assignments. The tests are somewhat difficult, even after reading the textbook. The level of specificity is quite high and unless you no-life the class or have a parent who is a CPA, you will probably not do well. The class started out with 120 people and ended with less than 30.
That being said, the teacher is very entertaining and really knows his stuff. Probably one of the best teachers I've had at UCLA. In my opinion, though, the class needs to be tuned down a bit to be able to fit everything in such a short time. The curve speaks for itself.

Professor Woo is an excellent and well-organized teacher. Her lectures are clear, the notes have good examples, and office hours are very helpful. Grades consisted of three exams that were equally weighted, open note, and not cumulative. Homework wasn't collected and was helpful for applying concepts from lectures, but the problems weren't exactly like exams. Even though exam averages were pretty high she gave 3 points of extra credit for completing the course evaluation. You can really tell that Professor Woo cares for her students and wants you to succeed. I hope I get the chance to take another class with Professor Woo!

I added this course a week late in the summer (giving me only 4 1/2 weeks to learn the material), and still found it somewhat easy. I did put in my fair share of studying, but his exams were pretty easy. Except for one problem on the midterm that you had to work backwards through, the questions were somewhat trivial. Yoon was a good lecturer in that he took his time to make sure we understood topics. One downside of him taking his time was the fact that he lectured the full time, every time (with a very small break.) I do not think he grades on a curve either, but that isn't neccessary with his tests. One person below mentioned he had "Ravetch-like exams." I have not had Ravetch yet (taking him for 120B), but if his exams are like Yoon's, then I don't know what all the bitching is about. Maybe the reason for the easy final was due to the fact that it was a summer course, who knows. Bottom line: I highly recommend Professor Yoon. You will learn a lot, and get the grade you deserve!

Most Helpful Review

If you can learn on your own, going to lecture is waste of time. Her lecture is really really dry. Instead of talking about the stories happened in the business world, she kept bragging about how godd she was as a student bluh bluh bluh. Why? That's because compare with professor Litt, professor Klein and other faculty members from Anderson, professor Zhang does not have any experience from the field.
