She teaches you as if you're in elementary school, but doesn't actually help you understand the material. Her tests are HARD and she doesn't curve. Would not suggest taking her.

You can tell that she really cares about her students- she wants everyone to actually learn the material. Unfortunately, her in-class PowerPoints are useless at teaching you about the homework or what will be on the test. Also, making classes mandatory makes this fact even more annoying. She's …more nice, but be prepared to teach yourself the material. less

She is a new teacher however has a good grasp on basic accounting. She takes attendance but it doesn't count, graded assignments and tests however she is very fair with grading and as long as you go to class or heavily read the text book you can get a A/B in the class.

Pretty much take any prof besides her if you want to pass accounting. The info she talks about in class does not correlate to the homework at all and the tests are very very very hard.

Derinda Stiene is a really nice woman but she's not that great of a professor when teaching accounting. She reads off the slides too much (in my opinion) and one would expect to be doing journal entries and putting stuff into the "books" for the test right? nope. She's more into …more definitions which is oddly worded. homework is nothing like the test. less

Do not take Derinda Stiene for accounting. She is a very nice person but not a good teacher. Teaches from power points and is very boring. Very confusing to follow. Last resort take her but she is not good. Test are weighted weird. Had to give extra credit since everyone in the class wasn't doing …more to hot less

Rindy is a great professor. Accounting is a hard class, but she makes it easy as long as you apply yourself. Go to her office hours when your having trouble and it will work wonders. She cares greatly for her students and she wants them to do well. Do the Wiley Plus, speak a little in class, go to …more her office hours, and you will end up with an A/A-. less

I would not suggest taking Stiene for Accounting 1. She read straight from the slides, did not go very in-depth with problems. The grade and final exam calculation is very odd. Homework didn't seem to prep well for the tests. Does not curve grades at all. Would not recommend at ALL.
