Comment:
I couldn't wait any longer through the semester to write this; it's been that awful. The class turned virtual due to COVID, but she did no lectures just posted presentations on blackboard and fled off into the sunset. Every exam required Respondus Lockdown browser and webcam. She cared more about cheating than teaching her students, and it shows.

Comment:
Though Dr. Agesa is very sweet and kind, shes not a good teacher - especially virtual. She doesnt explain problems well. Tons of homework & 3 exams, which is to be expected but she makes exams so point heavy, homework wont help you. The final was 232 points, 8 points a question which gives you little room for error. In my opinion, it wasnt fair

Dr. Agesa is a wonderful and enthusiastic professor who is genuinely interested in her students learning! I highly recommend printing her notes to take good notes and identify what is most important. Exams 1 and 3 online, 2 and 4 in-class. Exams can be tough, so always pay attention, do each chapter HW and practice questions, and study hard!

Comment:
As smart as she is, is not good at teaching. She doesn't explain things well for people who don't have a mathematical mind. She has her students sit in groups to do the problems in the textbooks together in class and rarely teaches. Her tests are atrocious and if you get one thing wrong, you get them all wrong. Most of her students got a D.

Dr. Agesa is enthusiastic, passionate, and hilarious. Will provide the resources for EARNING success. Class is spent lecturing and working on HW in groups. I usually hate group work but it fits nicely here. FIN is tough, so do all the problems (HW + practice exam) multiple times, review the lectures, and you will succeed. Brush up on your algebra!

She is a good professor but her teaching methods are not that great. She reads straight from the powerpoint/notes that she gives you access to on Blackboard. Definitely need to show up and do the homework that she assigns unless you're just super gifted at finance. I like her as a person but I would not take her again if I did not have to.

Comment:
She's a very nice person, but her method of teaching isn't what most of us would prefer. She gives homework after each chapter. And when class has questions, she comes to each individually. Takes a lot of time. Rarely writes anything on the board. Gives a few extra credit opportunities.

Comment:
She was very difficult and did not do a single problem on the board throughout the whole semester. If everyone in the class had the same question, she would go around individually and help every single person while the rest of us just sat there. I am a visual learner so I learned nothing from her in class. I basically had to teach myself finance.

I have no interest in finance, but Professa Agesa was one of the best teachers I've had at Marshall. The energy and enthusiasm she brings is amazing. I had dropped finance twice prior to taking Dr. Agesa and don't think I would ever had passed without her help.

I enjoyed every moment in this class. Prof Agesa is a wonderful teacher. She makes sure that everyone in the class understands the material by providing helpful examples to each concept taught. I would suggest that you read the textbook because it provides great sample questions for the exam.

Comment:
I took Dr.Agesa for Principles of Finance and now Insurance. She is the type of professor that will bend over backwards for her students to help them understand finance. Sure, her tests are hard (not in her insurance class), but she wants you to learn something useful to carry on in your finance careers. She is a very smart woman. Enroll in one.

Dr. Agesa is one of the best professors at Marshall. The class is hard, but she knows what she is talking about. If you aren't going into higher Finance, I recommend Denning. However, if you are a Finance (I am) or an Econ major, take Jackie, she more than prepares you for what's ahead.

Comment:
This is one hard class! Dr. Agesa is a very good professor, but she teaches a tough subject. She makes her tests harder than the study guides in order to prepare you for upper level finance courses. I stayed up all night studying b4 a test and got a "C" on it. Take Agesa if you are going on into higher finance, otherwise, take Denning or other.

As far as overall teaching quality, she's the best professor at Marshall I've ever had. She goes over practice tests with the class and encourages questions. She is very pleasant and enthusiastic. To these people that complain that you have to ACTUALLY do homework and show up for class...Duh! It's called college, not kindergarten!

This class is brutal. you have to do your studying, adn go to class on a regular basis, she can only provide so much help. And print off her notes she post online before they will help you understand the subject, better than the textbook

I got an A in the class and love Ecn, but dislike Dr. Agesa. She's enthusiastic and keeps you awake, which is good, but that's about it. The class is not as hard as she wants to present it. I found it easy. I don't really quite understand this class being labeled "the hardest" of the Ecn sequence.

Extremely helpful and understanding. She wants all of her students to fully comprehend the material given and will help each individual until you understand it. Relates topics in class to college students lives. She is funny too. Take her!
