professor
Stav Gaon

Mar 2003

Stav presents the basic material in his lectures while expecting a much deeper understanding for the exams. His explanations lack clairty and the TAs are even worse. I do not recommend this class.

Dec 2002

Stav tries hard with incredibly boring material. He encourages students to make presentations for extra credit on current accounting issues, and he brings in articles from the Wall Street Journal and New York Times on accounting problems in corporate America. He is, almost unbelievably, actually interested in accounting - you can tell when he breaks into a wide grin at the mention of accounting principles. Nonetheless, I can't recommend this course to anyone who does not HAVE to take it. Accounting is mind-boggling boring. You will end up sitting with your friends joking about Stav and working crossword puzzles in class.
