Pros: Nicest professor on Earth

Genuinely cares about students

Communicates the information well

Gives a study guide for test and is consistent to the study guide

Tons of interaction during class

Cases, not homework, that help you learn and apply the information
Cons: Have to go to class every time, clicker points. I don't mind, though.
Dr. Stein always makes me feel like my time is valuable. She spends a lot of time planning interactive activities for class, writing case studies for us to do, and asking for our feedback on the course at several points.

Her case studies take time, but they are worthwhile and are mostly graded on effort. You can also do many of them with a partner.

She gives out a study guide for each test which is consistent with the material on the actual test. You have to study for the tests, and shouldn't do so last minute because there's a lot of information to learn/memorize.

My favorite part is when she routinely shows us one or two adorable pictures/short video of her 2 year-old son. He's adorable and it makes her super relatable and approachable.

She always makes herself available during office hours and really, really wants students to come.



I've had her for two semesters and the thing that stood out the most to me was when she e-mailed each female student individually with a link to a Sheryl Sandberg talk about empowerment in the accounting industry and offered to talk about it whenever we wanted. That really meant a lot to me.



She's the best, take her.

Pros: she explains the material well

she makes herself available for office hours

she makes a study guide and tells you exactly what will be on exmas
Cons: boring class

clicker points every class
This review is for 3314. This class is going to be boring because it is audit. You can't really thoroughly understand what goes on in an audit by reading a textbook or listening to a lecture, however, that is what this class attempts to do. Dr. Stein tries to make this class as enjoyable as possible. She is so nice and always makes herself available to help. She shows videos of her cute son at the beginning of class sometimes which wastes a little time. There is rarely homework and honestly, this class is an easy A, just DON'T procrastinate. This class is a very easy class to wait until the last minute to study for, and there is no way that you can cram all of the information in one night. It's all pretty much memorization. Her test are a little difficult, because they require that you not only know what the vocabulary words mean, but you know how to apply them in any given situation. However, if you're paying attention in class, they aren't bad. My biggest piece of advice is PAY ATTENTION in class and make sure you're taking notes.DON'T SKIP CLASS! iClicker points are so easy! I slept most of the time which is why I ended up with a B.
