A more in-depth study guide and more handouts would be very helpful!
Whenever I struggled with the homework he always helped explain it perfectly in class.
Professor Wen is a good professor and is understanding towards his students.
He is a very nice professor and he is always willing to help students. :)
Wonderful instructor with great passion. Would love to take another class of his!
Professor Wen was always willing to be available and help a student to understand the material presented. His quick responce to emails was also helpful.
Eric Wen is very knowledgeable and is an overall great professor. The only thing I found difficult was trying to connect what we had learned in class to what was assigned as homework with the textbook. I feel like the in-class exercises helped much more than the online homework.
Overall a pretty good professor. I would recommend Professor Wen to my friends.
Great teacher. However, had a hard time understanding concepts because the class moved very quickly. The teacher knew his material but often the lecture and the homework would be dissimilar and I would have to learn the homework on my own by reading the textbook. Could not read handwriting at times and had to ask the teacher to repeat something or move the projector so we could see. He was very nice, allowed us extra time for homework if the entire class didn't understand. The review packets were definitely helpful but lectures were very hard to understand. Tough class.
He teachers so much differently than the book it's confusing. If you miss a class you almost have no shot at remembering the materials. The reading and what he teaches is two completely different styles. The in class handouts were your best shot at understanding and following along effectively. We often went on side tracks and I got lost during the class. I would not recommend taking a course from him.
Class was overall excellent I would recommend to other students to take accounting with this professor. However, I think if he wrote neat because most of the times we have a hard time reading his handwriting, or if he used PowerPoint, or Microsoft word it would be much easier for students to follow along in class. Also if he paused for little bit after each slide for students to have time to write notes, that would be awesome. Exams were based on the materials we learned in class & he let us know clearly what was expected of us. He is very friendly and helpful. Homeworks were challenging, and I think if it was due on Friday instead of Wednesday since most of the times we go over the material on Wednesday in class that's due for homework, it would be nice. I think the grade system is fair.
Such a confusing teacher. He mumbles to himself, his notes are unorganized and his handwriting is horrible. I went to his office hours weekly for the first two and a half months but I gave up after that because it just made no sense at all. Had to change my major because of him.

I was actually a little nervous about taking this class, but he made it enjoyable. Liked his examples and exercises.
Professor Wen knows his subject very well. Also, I appreciate that he takes the time to go over the format of his exams.
Wish he handed back out test so we can at least look at them. And at the end of class or after a certain time or so we could return them. I like how he goes over similar problems right before the exams because I felt this help guide me to studying for the material. It also gave me practice on hands on problems.
Professor Wen often struggled with some questions
Good professor.
I encountered difficulties understanding the material, but Professor Wen was more than willing to help out! If I sent him an email he would respond in a timely manner. It is clear that he is well prepared for his lectures. He stresses the importance of learning the fundamentals of accounting, and encourages us to understand how all the concepts connect. I learned a lot from Professor Wen, and I would highly recommend other students to take his class.
Professor Wen is a very caring and supportive instructor. Throughout my difficulties this semester he has helped me and communicated with me effectively and supported any decision I made. With any decision I made he was flexible and willing to work with me because of my situation.

Nice and easy going teacher and class
Dr. Eric Wen is clearly a very strong accounting professor. As an economics teacher, he attempted to integrate accounting principles into relevant economic topics. Unfortunately, his class was not as reluctant to pay attention. According to my standards, he is a typical teacher who is doing his job to teach us. However, if the students are unwilling to pay attention or participate in class, this is a student based issue and not the professors fault. In any cases, professors are allowed to remove the students from the class, but he refrains from doing so. He attempts to make our lives more challenging each day.
I felt that the course was well organized, although I felt that more directions for the cases and project would have be helpful. It was difficult to know what was really wanted for the assignment so it seemed like students were going off of past experience with other class projects.
Though Mr. Wen is a very nice professor that is knowledgeable in Economics, I felt that he could have challenged us more and taught us more about global economics. The homework didn't really contact to the case studies, and the case studies haven't connected too much with real life for everyone. Wish it would have been more well rounded to be used outside of the classroom.
Overall, I think Wen could have been more enthusiastic in teaching the course and relating it to current events. I liked Wen but I do not think he is suitable to be the economic teachers. He is suited towards teaching lecture and textbook material but he has a long way to improve to be engaging for debates and discussion. I also think Wen needs to be more organized and teach from the assigned powerpoints. Without it, class seems to jump all over the place and does not seem relevant.
Good, knowledgable teacher. Very approachable
Professor was a few minutes late to class consistently throughout the semester. It seemed as though he was new and didn't have a well thought out plan for the class. He seemed unsure of himself alot. The requirements for the case summaries were unclear. The exams were difficult, even with a full cheat sheet, because many of the concepts on the test were not discussed in depth in class. Professor was always willing to help students and work with them, which is a plus. He is a very pleasant man and is always in a good mood. I just think he should take more time to plan out the course and be more organized.
Professor Wen takes difficult subject matter and is able to explain simply and thoroughly.
Felt unorganized, many tangents, not enough guidelines or expectations of students, wished assignments graded faster, boring lectures, hard to relate and learn
I think the class is funny, but the hand writing in board can be clearly and bigger, it will be helpful to the student who taking note in class! Also Thanks for teaching me! You are excellent! =)

Great semester!!!
The text was rather expensive for the shortened version with cases and access to the course website, also I believe that the point distribution for assignments were inefficient
I didn't really like the textbook. The examples in there are not detailed enough to understand what is going on all the time.
Wen knows his stuff but it is really hard to pay attention. He talks quietly and is not very exciting. Luckily I can go over things with the online homework we have. He is extremely helpful though and nice.
He is a good professor, but bus 313 should not be a subject he should teach. I am very disappointed with his approach to the students and I wished he could put more effort than reading off a powerpoint and give us weekly homework that didn't fit with the assignments and exams he gave us. He should try to give examples and help his students actually develop an interest in the course. The schedule was somewhat scattered and I feel I didn't get a good understanding of the course...
A lot of discussion in this class, we learn materials not only in the text book, also outside the class, he always find some article relate to the topic we are learning and what happen in the real world.

I wish we had more examples and worksheets to do. The powerpoint and homework assignments does not explain how to calculate certain things.
I will never forget Eric Wen. I always have difficulty in math classes. Taking the accelerated Acct. 201 class in a short session was a big challenge. I asked Eric for help, when I realized that the summer class was too fast for me and realized that I might not pass his class. Eric did not waste any time to offer help. He was always ready to give advise every time I have difficulties. He motivated me from the very start and make me to keep going. Eric sets high standard for his students ,He is a big brother to me. He is the kind on instructor that a University need . More Power to ERIC WEN!!!!!
Professor Wen could be a little more active when he speaks to the class. He could also give out practice problem in class for us to work it out. Overall he a good professor, but could be a lot better.
He's an Accounting GENIUS but has serious trouble connecting the information with his students. Half of them left half way through the course (or stopped showing up) and that was that. Lame

Every time I asked questions to professor Wen, he explain very clearly. It helped a lot to understand. I learned a lot about intermediate financial accounting in this class. Thank you very much.
A professor who actually takes into consideration of his students. Willing to listen, help, and a very understanding professor when you talk to him. Lessons were engaging and very enthusiastic about the lesson.
Best accounting teacher I've had so far. Class was easy to follow yet challenging.
Very nice teacher who has patience to answer questions and point you out of some confusing of the content.
Thank you very much for teaching me this summer, I had a great time learning from you. I still remembered the way you derive PVA formula. It is amazing! Your theoretical approach to accounting bring me to a new understanding of Accounting. You are talented in explain theoretical and complicated concept, I think if you spend more time on chapter explanation and few time on working on the problem would be beneficial. Thank you again!
Professor Wen is always willing to help students and asks before going over the next chapter, if anyone has questions about homework and goes over them. I would recommend students to take him for accounting.
Thank you!!

I appreciate the fact that the course wasn't moving too fast or too slow.
None! Great job. Keep it up!
I really learned alot in ACC 201 in Eric Wen's class. I liked that the class was very organzied, and I found that studying for the exams was very manageable due to the sources available (wiley, textbook, etc). I would suggest some easy, simple, occassional in class quizzes to test the students' knowledge, and maybe offer extra credit points for each right answer. This might encourage the class to do more studying on their own time between exams. Other than that, the class was very helpful and educational.
good teacher. needs to give better examples thought...more closely related to students.
great job
Very informative class.
Professor Wen seems like a really nice person but I'm sorry to say I feel that this class needs a lot of improvement. Here's a list of things I feel would improve this course: 1. First and foremost, have some energy! In classes where the subject matter is kind of dull, it's up to the teacher to get students engaged and at least try to make it more enjoyable. This way, the students may feed off of the teacher's energy and be more willing to pay attention. If the teacher is enthusiastic and passionate about the material being taught, (I believe) there's a greater chance that the students will be encouraged to feel the same. This class was so quiet and awkward and there was almost 0 student-teacher interaction. 2. Get us involved! When teachers encourage students to be more active in class, it may not only increase students' interest in the material but also make the material easier to learn/remember. To be honest, I hardly retained anything that was said in lecture. I got most of my understanding from just reading the text. The lectures didn't at all engage me, so I wasn't really motivated to pay attention. 3. I think that doing the review questions every Tuesday in class is one of the best parts of this course. What I think would make it even better is if students were actively involved in reviewing the material. For example, calling on a student to answer a question instead of just answering it yourself. This way, students' minds are engaged and required to think. As I mentioned above, getting us engaged will help us remember the material. I appreciate the effort put into this course but I do hope some of my suggestions may have an effect on future courses, especially since I'm taking ACC 202 next semester!
I really like our professor because he always appears to be helpful and it is really helpful because he posts lecture slides and problems online on Laulima.
He gets through the lectures quickly, but the class period of problems are extremely helpful when it comes to studying.
class became boring rather early in the semester.. Same process of learning each class period, there didn't seem to be any sort of enthusiasm and his teaching style was the exact same every time. Discuss if any problems with homework, Then go over book material , then go over book problems.. it was the same thing every.class.period no change up at all. Slowly see a decrease in the amount of students in the classroom week after week.
Nice guy.. Great accountant Im sure... but very monotone.
Course material was difficult to learn, I wish you set more examples.
This teacher really knows his material. I used to get help once a week from him in regards to the homework, and it was extremely helpful. Great teacher.

Wen used to just read from the slides that are provided from the book. That made the course extremely boring and uninformative. Those slides are not the best learning tools. I would learn how to do everything outside of class. I used two YouTube channels to learn the information -- I will link them below. Luckily, the course was curved or I would have cried for hours in the shower because I wouldn't have gotten in Shidler. Although, when Wen would teach the material by using the practice problems and he would work them out and explain them further, was more effective. More proof that the slides provided by the book are not good. That book is terrible too. Why does it always have the problems have to be worked together? For example, the answer for 2 would have to used for number 3. It was really annoying flipping pages or if you did not know how to do number 2 than you wouldn't know how to do number 3. Links: http://www.youtube.com/feed/UChMBusCHTnH3pRB3UHa7xPQ http://www.youtube.com/user/oruaccounting?feature=
Always trying to improve his teaching ways.
Just do not read off based off the powerpoint when doing lectures.
Add some interesting cases of accounting in the lecture.
Please upload your lectures a couple of hours (at least) BEFORE class so that students can print it out and bring it to class to follow along.
I really enjoyed Prof. Wen's class. He is always willing and open to answering any questions or concerns you may have. I've contacted him multiple times with questions and he always went above and beyond to help me out. Although accounting is a boring subject to teach, he tries his best to help us understand the concepts. Great professor!!! Very kind and understanding. One of the best professors I've had so far. I would definitely take his classes in the future.
Late to every class. Did not know material well. Would often correct himself. made class very difficult. I learned the material myself, and easily
Eric Wen was very helpful and approachable whenever I was concerned with any aspect of the class. Although his lectures were very boring all of my learning was conducted on the online program called Aplia which I would not wish onto my worst enemies as the program is extremely inconsistent and has many bugs that affect students grades in an irreversible manner. No teacher should ever use the program to conduct their homework let alone their teaching. In lectures Mr. Wen would simple go over problems that we would see in the homework. Unlike my course with Prof. Jung there was no lecturing on the practices and implementation of the materials. All in all I am extremely dissapointed in the class and feel robbed by the fact that I was forced to pay to take this class just to get into the business when I have learned next to nothing and will need to have the knowledge for my future in business.
Sometimes it was a little hard to follow what you were doing when you were explaining how to do problems to the class. Maybe work on engaging the students a little more in class.
N/a
Very helpful especially when material was very difficult to understand. Even though there were times that he couldn't explain the material very well, he did his best to answer our questions when we asked him.
questions on test are alittle tricky and lectures are fast
I think the homework was a little to demanding, not in terms of degree of difficulty but the scoring system which was used (avg of answers given) made it so that if you got a decent score you didnt want to risk the points of trying it again, and where if you messed up in typing something in or just math mistake it could seriously hurt your grade, thus I found this grading method for the homework to not be conducive to learning the material as even though I may have gotten something wrong due to not understanding or having trouble applying the concept I would not try it again in fear of getting a worse score if I were to mess up again.
Having the handouts actually given to us was much more beneficial than not having it as was the beginning of the course. The lectures need to be more animated meaning, not just standing behind the podium and speaking monotone. Encouraging more class participation would have been better as well, like ask us questions during the lecture. Basically the lectures were quite dull and should be revamped to encourage more participation and less boredom from the students.
Study guide and sample test really helped me with exams
Performed very well in the small classroom setting, the chapter overviews with worksheets was a highlight for the course, forced me to do the work. It's a shame the class was empty so often, though maybe that's why the lessons worked so well, it was easier to get instant clarification of the work.

Slow down when explaining difficult material. Sometimes you go to fast to understand whats going on.
Dr. Wen is an incredible intelligent and helpful teacher. His ACC 321 course offers great insight into the field of accounting, and I would highly recommend taking any course under his tutelage.
Prof. Wen seems to care about his students, but seems very disorganized. Lectures did not seem to prepare us for exams. Exams seemed impossible to get a perfect grade. Often talked about random areas of accounting that did not help us make a connection to what we were learning. It is obvious Prof. Wen is trying to get through to his students, but may need more experience in the teaching field.
Very helpful
Great guy, had no problems approaching him with questions
Professor Wen is a very easy to talk to person. He clearly knows the topic of accounting well. He was always helpful when I did not understand a topic. I realize that this is his first semester teaching, so there is a lot of minor things that could be improved upon. The amount of work on homework, assignments and tests should be considered more carefully. I believe this problem will be solved next semester because of his experience this semester. I would much rather have class time for explaining chapters in detail rather than going over homework. You have great homework solutions that should be sufficient in understanding how to do most problems. Towards the end you started using more of your own notes to show how to do problems in new chapters--this was very helpful compared to the slides that the book's website gives. Overall, for a motivated student his class was very easy because of the curve, but for others it was difficult. I appreciate Professor Wen's consistent positive attitude and helpfulness. I feel that attitude and willingness to help are the most important factors in a instructor, all other things can be worked on.
I'm not a fan of the textbook we used in this class. It was very helpful to have homework solutions posted online, but frustrating that the majority of the problems in the book did not have answers provided for them. It made it difficult to thoroughly prepare for exams by practicing. I would usually look elsewhere for problems that I thought would most likely appear on exams.
prof wen's style of teaching using pen and paper is better than using the powerpoint. it's also a good way to learn when we do some problems in class. i wish we had a study guide to help us study for what's going to be on the exam.
Eric Wen is very knowledgeable in his field but he has difficulty conveying the information to the class. The powerpoint presentations had TOO MANY slides that were crammed with so much information it was overwhelming. Towards the end of the semester, Eric Wen hardly used the powerpoint slides and taught everything on his own and I feel that was more beneficial and I absorbed more information. His exams (especially #2) has too many questions for such a short time. Exam 2 had numerous calculations to be done and too many questions that it was practically impossible to finish in the short class time.
