Quarter Taken: Spring 2018 Submitted June 19, 2018 Grade Received: B

MGMT 124 ended up being my favorite out of all the classes I've taken with Professor Williams. The class itself is a culmination of all topics that have been covered in 120A/B (which is why it might seem intimidating and difficult) but Williams does an EXCELLENT job explaining EVERYTHING. I've never had a professor that was so knowledgeable and clear in explaining such dense material. PERK: A lot of the stuff covered in class is covered on the CPA exam, so it helps to learn the difficult topics in a class setting.

PRO TIP: Record each lecture (most of the time there is a lot of material and not enough time to write it all down) and then listen to them and rewrite your notes.

Grading was 40% Midterm 1, 40% Midterm 2, and 20% project (can be group or singular). Exams & project were non-cumulative, but appropriately challenging. He gives you two practice tests for each exam and a third is reviewed in class. Fair and quick grader. Always willing to discuss questions on materials and share his opinions on current matters!

Great class, Williams is clear and concise. Fair grader who does not penalize you in the later parts of the problem if you make a mistake initially. Would definitely recommend him!

I have taken 4 classes with Williams (121, 122, 124, 126) and he is an extremely fair grader and great professor. Yes, you will have to go to class and work in this class, but you are also a UCLA student taking a class called "ADVANCED accounting." I did poorly on the first midterm, got an A on the second midterm, and then 100% on the group project (the average for the project is a 99%). I highly recommend this class if you are planning on working in accounting at some point.

This was an extremely difficult class and if you don't plan on putting in effort, don't waste your time. You have to go to class to learn the material and the exams are pretty tough. However, having just graduated and being in the process of studying for the CPA exam, I can say that Professor Williams is one of the few professors I've had that made the material stick. He's hard but fair and always willing to answer questions after class or in office hours. Without having taken this class, studying for the CPA would've been much harder for me, so if you plan on pursuing a CPA, take this class and put the time in.
