Comment:
Best online class ever. We used an online program and it was self explanatory. We read, practiced and took our test on there. It was super straightforward. If you can add 1 +1, you can do well in this class. Our only grades are 3 exams, so do be aware of that. He gives you a good idea of what to expect on the exams. Take it and surprise yourself!

He could improve by alot, felt like i wasted my time by not learning the concepts of audit. His exams are 40 MCQ. 32 come out of the Gleim cpa review word for word no tricks and 8 come from the sky im assuming. 1st test had a test bank of 118, 2nd 330, 3rd 220.

Comment:
Professor Martin is very clear on what will be tested. study Gleim book, participate and you will do good. for all of those complaints that tests are difficult and you don't know what test would be on its very unfair because it stated very clearly on syllabus. not an easy A but all questions come from Gleim JUST STUDY THEM

Exams are pulled straight from the online GLEIM CPA multiple choice problems and 1-3 problems from the end of chapter problems discussed in class. As long as you run through those online problem sets a few times (150-400 max questions) and show up to class, you'll get an A.

Comment:
On the first day of class I got an answer wrong and he walked up to me and palmed me on my forehead... He curves tests down sometimes, hes an awful teacher and a very tough grader. He gives up to 10 participation extra credit points but only gives them to his favorites so don't count on them to boost your grade. Worst teacher/professor Ive ever had

He doesnt care about his students and will not bump up a 79 percent to an 80. He is a very tough grader as well.

Horrible Professor in this whole Towson University, I have ever seen. He had his own grading criteria which are so confusing and he is not a fair grader as well. Never ever take him. Avoid him.

Threatens to curve test scores down. Doesn't tell you what is on his exams, the textbook doesn't even help. Avoid at all costs.

Comment:
Be ready to teach yourself most of the material. He uses all CPA questions that he doesn't prepare you for and the final is cumulative. Only thing that saved me is the case studies and the group project which is worth a test grade. MAKE SURE YOU PARTICIPATE. He gives out extra credit at the end of the semester depending on participation.

Comment:
Took online class because the reviews of in-class teaching were bad. He is still extremely rude and condescending online. Typing in all capital letters ( yelling) for asking even simple questions to clarify assignments or the syllabus that don't actually explain anything just repeat the same information. Grade only based on 3 exams no other work.

Prof Martin is a nice professor but tough grader. You really need to study hard for his exams . Make sure to study Gliem questions and practice them online about 50 times or as much as you can. The more you study them the better grade you can get. Don't skip class because he collects the hw in class. He won't accept any late work at no cost.

Comment:
Rude and unhelpful. Homework is tough, and both lectures and homework are irrelevant and unhelpful for the exams. Don't read the textbook. Start studying a few weeks in advance for every exam, and use the online test prep that comes with the CPA questions book. Hardest class I've ever taken.

Comment:
Dr. Martin is a nice man, but expect his class to be tough. He uses randomly chosen CPA questions for the exams to prevent cheating. That makes the exams pretty difficult. You will learn a lot about the course material and how to prepare for the CPA exam. Study the CPA questions first, then the textbook for the quizzes.

This guy was absolutely TERRIBLE!!! I tried emailing him about questions with this course, and all he would do is copypaste from the Syllabus or the Discussion Board off of Blackboard, and would paste it into the email that he would reply you back with. Simply pointless! I would STRONGLY suggest you NOT taking this professor if you can avoid him!

Don't take his class. You have to teach yourself everything, or get a tutor. If you miss an exam online due to an emergency he will give you a zero. He could care less if you pass his class or not. Most people dropped his class, or are failing this semester. Don't take him.

Comment:
The video's online don't help, because they deviate away from what's given on the homework assignments, & exams. I had to figure everything out on my own. The grade scale on the syllabus is wrong too. Don't take his class online, because you will have to figure out everything on your own. Most students dropped his class. Get ready to fail!

Hardest class i've ever taken, and i've had friends that passed accounting 201 (with a different prof) with flying colors. Online homework due everyweek. Tests are extremely hard. Embarrasses students. Never struggled this hard in a class before. DO NOT TAKE. Avoid at all costs

Good professor, knew a lot about accounting. Gives a multiple choice quizzes on each chapter. Not a lot of questions but can effect your grade. Online homework mandatory and graded harshly. Definitely do not miss class.

Comment:
He taught in a very specific way. Explains why things were a certain way which was helpful. Homework helps. He likes to pick on students that he thinks don't know the answers, but explains why your answers are wrong. You MUST study for his tests they are computational and very hard. If you study you should do fine. The final is multiple choice
