VERY BAD PROFESSOR. DO NOT TAKE IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR GPA AND MENTAL HEALTH IN CHECK. Her lecture slides are TOO SHORT with (SOME WERE EVEN JUST 1 SLIDE) 1 example per class and the lecture itself is only half an hour to 45 mins. SHE ALSO REFUSES TO GIVE OUT PRACTICE QUESTIONS AND SAYS THAT SHE IS "NOT A FAN OF THE TEXTBOOK" PLS AVOID!!!!!!!!!!!

Imagine having a doctorate and still being this useless... Acts super sweet in lectures (only 45 mins anyways) then is a complete savage on grading. I lost brain cells after this experience. -100/10 do not recommend.

Words can not describe how bad Nancy is at teaching. But numbers can. 0/10 probably the worst prof I've ever taken. It's hard to pinpoint exactly why she was bas because there are just not enough characters. Please save your mental health, GPA, sanity and everything else and do. not. take. her. You'll thank me later.

Comment:
I cannot express how awful this prof is. Uses 4-6 slides a week and therefore being left with no content to test on, pulls questions out of thin air. I've never stressed about a class more in my life. She won't teach you or clarify anything. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS.

Comment:
Easily the worst professor in Odette. If you care about your GPA avoid her at all costs. She is the most miserable grader and doesnt even know how to assess knowledge of the course properly. 47% final exam seems bad but its worse when its 4 questions that dont even cover 1/4 of the material were supposed to know. Terrible.

Comment:
Only one lecture a week consisting of approximately 4 slides, students were left with extremely vague content and little to no resources for help. Asking for help and clarification was extremely difficult and intimidating. over half of the assessments were subjective essays with complex topics. 47% very difficult final. Avoid at all costs.

Students deserve a refund and apology. Useless 45 min lecture once a week. When students voiced concerns she would just send passive aggressive emails. Learned next to nothing. Created own case for midterm with no rubric. Then she complains it was grueling to mark. BooHoo. She assigned it! She makes 160k+ a year. Also 47% final nightmare. AVOID!!!

Worst professor ever!!! I was trying my best in this class. Whenever I had sth confused I will ask her. The terrible thing is that she did not give you any help. She will only give some unclear opinions, and it looks like she is a disordered person. She will make your efforts totally unworthy. AVOID AVOID AVOID

Tests 100% of the textbook but even that won't be enough. Don't take her please, your GPA will suffer. If you want a successful future, no matter how good you are at Finance, do not take her.

Doesn't teach you anything. Her lectures have only 4 slides which are so vague, she tests you on something completely different. She affected my GPA so negatively, but no way am I suffering with this lady again. AVOID!

The absolute worst professor I have ever had during my university career. PPTs consisted of literally two slides and she lectured for 45min once a week. For context, I passed my previous two finance classes with 90+ and this class was significantly lower than that. Save yourself and do NOT take this professor at any cost.

Taught us once a week for about 45mins with powerpoint presentations of 4 slides max. We had to create our own midterm question and then answer it, without any rubric for guidance. I learned nothing in her class and received the lowest grade of my University career. Seriously cannot believe that she is a Professor at the University.

I don't think I have ever heard a professor say that a formula was incorrect and doesn't work and still use it. I don't think I have ever had a professor take points off an assignment for GRAMMAR in a finance class. If I wanted to take an english class I would. Astonishing how unqualified she it for this class. Save your strength and don't take her

She's a horrible prof. She doesn't give perfect for participation because she doesn't believe in anyone obtaining perfect. It's hard to try and participate with everyone trying to get good marks. If you say something incorrect, she humiliates you in front of everyone. I do not recommend her for any course.

I had her and I did alright. Exams were very easy, but I'm not one for participation and so that really hurt my grade. Her grading was spotty on her assignments though and wasn't willing to budge on it. I probably left about 10-12% on the table and came out with a B grade so an A is very easy to attain
