He gives hard tests! Unlike the the homeworks he assigned from the text book, a large % of the questions on tests are not straightforward. Although he is generous on waiving, lots of people failed. His lectures are not very helpful in terms of the tests: explain the basic principle, do the homewo

His teaching tecnioque varies too much from what is taught in the book and it makes it hard to do your homework if you can't figure it out once you have done it. His tests are torture and he has a bad habbit of using option "E" on the Scantron even if it is not listed as an option. Read …more the book! less

John was a great professor. His first exam was a bit of a shock. I wasn't well prepared for it. He was great at helping me prepare for the second exam.

He makes it seem like the class is hard but it's actually easy. Gives pop quizzes that are straight from the slides. He gives you exactly whats gonna be on the final and midterm. Really really nice guy, but accounting is the most boring subject ever!!

You have to study for the exams--they are a bit difficult but are similar to the practice quizes at the end of each chapter. He curves the test grades. Be on time to his class or he will not let you turn in the homework assignments. I got a B.

Good professor, need to study hard for his exams, then you are OK. You learn a lot in his class. However, some people really got their pants on fire as his exams are tough. I got by the first two with A- but the final a B-, majority did pretty bad in the final.

I dreaded this class but Prof. O'Shaughnessy made the hard material very simple. The book is humongous, h/w is graded, and quizzes might come from one chapter AHEAD, but he grades on a big curve which is very fair. He's very approachable and helpful. He's always well-prepared for the classes. If …more you can, take Acct 303 with him, before he retires! less

Very nice guy, very helpful, very knowledgeable, but Very boring...reiderates things A LOT to the point where I would lose my train of thought. What can you say - he's an accountant not a comedian. Could barely sit through class. Very hard tests but generous curve. Study hard and you will do …more fine. Must do HW and quizzes as part of your grade. less

Very good teacher. Good lectures. Do the homework well and it'll save you a lot of time for the tests. His exams have tons of extra-credit (his way of curving)
