David Wang is a great professor and knows the subject material very well. The book, however, was hardly helpful. Furthermore, out of all the business and accounting classes i have taken at Shidler, this class was the least useful. It essentially reteaches material learned in BUS 311 and hardly focuses on accounting at all. I would much rather the requirement for an undergrad accounting degree include a different class--one that would be essential and helpful in passing the CPA exam or putting students in contact with more applicable material to the business world. The class just seemed rather redundant with what was taught in BUS 311.
Dr. Wang was very helpful and knew the course material very well. He was able to teach complex material in a much easier way so that the students can understand.
information ahead of time to students about homework, outside of class assignments, and materials needed for the next class could be more clearly given and presented by the instructor so students can be more well prepared for class. While a syllabus was given, it is subject to change and most assignments and homework where not mentioned on the syllabus. It would be more beneficial for the instructor to make sure extra assignments and homework for the students are clearly presented to the students and requirements understood. Some outside assignments had a serious potential to be missed by students because of lack of understanding or failure to post assignments earlier on or make students aware ahead of time.

Some material was covered thoroughly while some was barely touched upon. I think it would be better to cover a little more about those topics that we don't discuss much in class.I think we spent way too much time on DFD's and too little time on XBRL. However, creating DFD's was very interesting, while a lecture on XBRL would have been very boring. This class was very helpful and educational. Thank you Professor Wang.
Thank you for sharing your extensive knowledge in accounting.
In-class exercises and homework are good practice. Three quizzes helped me to understand the chapters. Professor Wang explains clearly in class. I learned a lot of things from professor Wang. Thank you very much.
A very very very boring course material but he presented it well. Not sure where well need to know how to make diagrams in the future but he taught the material well and made it as interesting as it could be!
I liked the nature of the assignments. Learning to build queries, databases, and DFD. Very interactive and informative. I learned a lot about controls, technology, and security. I feel this course is important and vital to any students career. Material is very relevant to any student wanting to become an auditor in a public accounting firm. This class is an insight to the future of accounting and I feel that the subject needs to be taught at a higher significance. Instructions were sometimes unclear. He gave lots of opportunity for extra credit. Was very helpful when it came to answering questions. The professor is very informed on the subject and gave out helpful hints on useful websites.

pretty impressed with his ability to lecture with no source materials in front of him, he obviously prepares before class, or has a photographic memory. I would believe it if it was a little of both
David Wang is highly knowledgeable about information systems and so I feel confident learning from him because I know any questions I have will be answered. His course structure is well planned; In-class assignments and homework are reasonably assigned and graded. His teaching style of using the whiteboard and projector is helpful. My only suggestion would be to add in bonus questions in the quizzes. I feel the quizzes have so much weight in my grade. I constantly do my work and I turn in everything on time but I get worried about the quizzes because a couple questions wrong might really bring down my score. Overall, he's a great professor who knows what he is doing and grades fairly.
He is a good instructer. The class was very well taught and I was able to obsorb the material very well.
What an interesting class!
I would like to thank Professor Wang for teaching ACC 409. The course content was a little difficult to understand but Professor Wang helped the students when they had questions on the exercises and homework assignments. I thought that I learned many new concepts that I never knew before and I am confident the skills that I picked up with this class will help me do better in future accounting courses.
Having an associates degree in accounting and about to fulfill my Bachelor's, I am not quite sure the relevance of this course. At my two year school I took a course on computerized accounting in which I used accounting software. I thought that was what this was. The majority of the class seemed lost during class exercises and while Professor Wang seemed very knowledgeable, after this class and reading the book I feel I have gained nothing. Most of whats in this class I learned in introduction to business and common knowledge. I feel this course should be substituted for a course in Peachtree or Quickbooks.
This course has a great pace. The material was difficult, but Professor Wang was great at explaining the information especially the Data Flow Diagrams
nice professor :)
There are some difficult materials in ACC409 class but Professor Wang explained the materials very well. He is awesome! :D
Great Teacher!!
I think this class needed to be more broad as to what companies actually use what system and should be more about real world application. It seemed more like an IT class rather than accounting. Professor Wang is a great professor that obviously understands and knows the material, I think it needed to be brought down more to a student's understanding.
Great class. Thank you!
Thank you for the extra credits points that we're offered. It really helps out!

David Wang is a nice teacher, but he is very hard to understand when he is teaching. His class is confusing and it seems he leaves things unexplained and jumps from one point to another. Hard to even come to class because it's very confusing.
Best Accounting professor at UH Manoa, very very helpful.
I really liked Aplia and the use of online resources to complete work for this class. I thought it was much more effective than even going to class because you could actually pace yourself and teach yourself the material in a way that you could understand and remember.
TEACH ACCOUNTING 202!!
For some reason in the online hw i couldnt answer certain questions...like it wouldnt let me input any answers
In the beginning of the class, you moved a little too quickly and many of us were a bit lost. More classroom participation would be nice. Otherwise, helpful class.
Was a great class. I learned a lot and was happy with the grades and the teacher's teaching style. I didn't like the amount of homework as sometimes the homework didn't always correspond to everything we were going to cover on tests but it was ok.
