This prof. is absolutely horrible. He assigns you TONS of reading, but he does not explain anything. All he does is he reads the overhead, but does not explain anything whatsoever. And the overheads are just simply the main ideas literally speaking copied from the book. If people ask him a question in class and he does not have time to cover the new material then you are responsible on your own to figure it all out. Next class he goes on to a new topic before he covered the material from the previous class. Absolutely ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish I had never signed up for the class...I will have to take finance with someone else to really learn something.
Winter 2022 - We spent weeks on present value and future value calculations and glazed over the most interesting parts of the content (valuation methods). Convery uses the textbook's slides, and will quickly read them to himself before presenting them. The exams are hard, and often contain errors. Bad professor for interesting material. Convery doesn't even actually have a background in econ/finance, which is probably why his teaching style is so fragmented. Take this class with another professor. Also, the labs are pretty easy - don't bother making a group to work on them together - you can pump them out easily in one hour on your own.
Professor Lustig is awesome. Super nice guy. If you don't understand something, definitely go talk to him. His lectures are great, though it was hard at 8am. Definitely take the midterm--much easier than the final. Reading the book helps a lot because he just follows it mostly. Really not that difficult of a class and you learn some very useful info.
