Principles of Finance
4****
This is a fairly straight forward class, shouldn't be too hard, but the grade consists of only 3 tests so if you screw one up you can have a hard time making it up. Dr. Kumar is nice but he tends to raaaaamble on and on and take forever to cover topics that were only scheduled to take one class period. I think he stretched one such lesson into 2 weeks.

I personally enjoyed the subject matter a great deal. Even years later I retained much of the knowledge covered in the class because it was incredibly relevant.

Introduction to Finance
5*****
Pros: Kumar is passionate about finance and is a very good teacher. He definitely isn't out to get his students. He also jokes during class sometimes, which helps to make the class a lot less boring. I really enjoyed having him as a professor, and if you have the chance to take him, seize it!
Cons: He doesn't curve individual exams, but he said that he sometimes curves the overall grades at the end of the course. The exams are a bit on the tougher side, but not too bad at all. I thought that they were pretty fair, content wise.
Kumar is one of the most knowledgeable professors I've met so far at Tech. Dude knows his shit and he's a really cool guy too. I don't think he teachers that many courses anymore, so take him if you have the opportunity to!

Pros: Great teacher! He really cares about everyone not only being successful but truly learning the content. Very approachable and flexible with meeting around your schedule. Asked if we could have class outside one day jokingly, and he said sure.... we had class outside in great weather
Cons: Sometimes can put you to sleep, but usually that is more so the content not being very interesting that day

Principles of Finance
5*****
Pros: Very informative, classes always interesting. There never is a dull moment
Cons: May sometimes get excited about a topic and may deviate away from the course material. Its very informative but makes us stay longer in class than the given duration of the class due to this. So its not really a con, just a minor inconvenience

Knows a lot about real world finance. Gives a lot of practice problems before each exam, but the tests are still rather difficult.
