The best class in the accounting minor I've ever taken. By far.
She uploads all her lecture videos at the start of class, so you can watch everything at your own pace. Pretty helpful. She goes through the notes with you in "fill-in-the blank" style, so lectures are clear and helpful. No complaints at all about the lecture style or clarity.
Homework is only recommended, but those that did it tended to do better. You probably don't need to do ALL the recommended questions (she recommends more than necessary); just do at least one from each topic. If you choose to completely skip the homework, it might be hard to get an A.
There are 3 quizzes, each worth 33%. If you pay attention to her lectures, take good notes, and do at least some of the recommended homework, you should be more than fine to get an A. Sometimes the book/homework contradicts what she teaches in lecture (since the book sometimes uses weird accounts), but always remember to use what she taught us as a rule-of-thumb in these cases. Quizzes were also multiple choice and non-cumulative, which helped.
She also gave us an Extra Credit Opportunity worth 3% of our grade, which is a pretty substantial chunk and certainly helped push some students over the edge for an A. It seems as if most of my peers were successful and enjoyed this class. I certainly did. Highly recommend Woo for 120A.
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!
