ACC501 ... Shannon, Donald S.


This site contains a copy of the syllabus and current information on grades.


  1. We will cover a lot of material in the first few weeks. The chapters will be covered sequentially. Please read as many of the first seven chapters (excluding chapter 2) as you can before the first class.
  2. If you have questions please call or e-mail, and I will try to respond as quickly as possible. (I plan to check e-mail each morning - but don't always).
  3. If you leave a voice mail for me please start by: (i) stating your name, (ii) identifying the course you are in and, (iii) slowly giving your phone number BEFORE beginning the message.
  4. If you send an e-mail to me please put the course identification and your name in the "Subject." [ ACC501, J. Doe ]
  5. I recommend you purchase a calculator with the present value functions included: [i%] [n] [PMT] [PV] [FV].
