ACIS 1504 - Intro to Bus Analytics & BI
Pros: Very easy class. Dr. Fan is a very nice guy that is willing to help and work with the students. He gave extra credit in the summer that was an extra 10 percent boost to our grade. I ended up getting over an 100 percent in his class.
Cons: The class can be a bit boring at times and his lecture slides are the exact same diagrams as the book.

Fan is really nice guy and his class isn't too bad. Class does get a little boring at times though. I took it during the summer and it was pretty accelerated. Only gave two tests, a midterm and a final. If you do poorly on the test(s), make sure to take advantage of his extra credit. This completely saved my grade and I ended up with a high B in the class, even though I got a C and a D on the midterm and final. Homework is really easy. One is a show and tell, other is a page and half paper. If you study at all you should pass the class, even if you don't do great on either of his tests.

Dr. Fan is a smart professor. He definitely caters to students' needs, which is nice, but the class could afford to be more difficult. The class ends before Thanksgiving break. I'd recommend Dr. Fan

Pros: Fan is the man! Definitely the most enjoyable accounting class I have taken at Tech. Information is easy to learn and understand. He makes it fun as well. Homework is 100% for completion. No cumulative final exam. Always cancelled the class before an exam just to give you extra time to study. Curved at the end too to make the average in the b+ to A- range. Great guy.
Cons: Did do two random attendance quizzes during the semester. If you missed them, only one would negatively effect your grade.

Pros: Fan is a great and chill guy. He lets you out of class 30 minutes early nearly every class. Always looks fresh too.
Cons: He doesn't teach the material in a way that will prepare you for the test. His relaxed style of teaching is countered with incredibly difficult exams that leave you thinking, "When did I ever learn anything like that?"
Cool, good guy. Kind of dry, tests are very hard. He does curve the final grades, but only by like 3 points or so.

Pros: He loves what he does and is a nice person.
Cons: He's not the best instructor. His tests, given the sheer amount of information, are impossible.
His lectures are comprised of him reading power points then telling stories that might relate (but most likely not). He is a pitchman for the BIT major, always toting the higher salaries, etc. It's infuriating when he reads the slide then says "learn it, know it" and then moves on. Very frustrating. The course will fill your head with massive amounts of superficial terminology.

Pros: Dr. Fan was kind. He knew he had to help his students and gave out extra credit that boosted our grade up 10%. That was a big help in my grade. Overrall he was helpful.
Cons: He read right off the slides. His lectures were sometimes boring. I HIGHLY recommend reading the chapter before his lecture because you will not understand what he is talking about without the chapter. You will but might not.
Good.

Pros: Homework is very easy, almost always a 100 unless you really gave it no effort.
Cons: Tests are fairly difficult. Not super exciting.
Dr. Fan is very nice and he will listen if you have problems meeting a deadline, etc. Probably the best teacher to have for this course.

Pretty straightforward class. This is basically intro to ECE for Accountants. We cover basic networks, computers, and how they work. The class is pretty straightforward, just memorize the slides. The class ends before Thanksgiving.
