Jim is cool! We like Barlow! He actually has provided an educational experience which will be very practical to use in everyday life. He doesn’t just teach theories and facts, but how to implement all of it into my future investing life.
I really think this course is great and has a very important subject. I wish there were more investing classes. Mr. Barlow is an excellent teacher with good credibility. His knowledge and desire to learn more about this subject are excellent. I have learned a lot from him.
I believe this to be a very effective class and more helpful than any General Studies class I have taken. I believe professor Barlow’s expertise and those of his colleagues help influence the class to make informed decisions for our futures.
I enjoyed this class very much. My enthusiasm for investing has been sparked by the reading and the teacher. He has done a great job integrating technology, guest speaker, overheads, & the required reading. My excitement is even catching on to my children. I have now started saving for retirement. I think this class is so valuable to all students should be required to take it. The most valuable and surprising thing I have learned was reading the Wallstreet Journal. Thank you. You have improved and affected my life. Thank you.
The instructor was easy to talk to and ask questions of about the material. He seemed to be most concerned about whether or not the students learned the subject matter, more than that he appeared knowledgeable. (He wasn’t here to show us how much he knew but rather to help us learn). Although he was thoroughly knowledgeable on the subject. I’ve learned a lot because of the way the class was presented. I hate to see the class end because it has been so much fun learning about investments. Mr. Barlow has a very good understanding of this subject. I really enjoyed him and this class.
I feel like Mr. Barlow did a great job & I enjoyed the actual experience he has in the industry, not just out of a book! A lot of the regular professors up here don’t have the passion for their subject like he does.
Professor Barlow is very educated and his enthusiasm for the subject was apparent. I feel this class was an extremely valuable experience for me and I hope I have the opportunity to take additional classes from Professor Barlow.
I really enjoyed this class and I believe that it should be a requirement to graduate for students. I am very interested in investing; however, before this course, my knowledge on investing was limited. I think that this class, unlike many others I have taken, will be beneficial for the rest of my life.
I have been going to school for a while now. This class was just by chance that I took it. I feel that this class has been more beneficial to me and my future than any other class I have taken so far. It should be REQUIRED!! Also, Mr. Barlow was an excellent teacher.
I think this professor is the sexiest man on campus. I love his bow tie collection and the passion he displays for books and ideas. He is a cutie, warm and kind and fun-loving. He brings out the best in his students. I like his gentle sense of humor.
The instructor was very knowledgeable. I do not remember a single question the instructor was not able to answer. The fact that the instructor has succeeded in following the principles he is teaching is most inspiring.
This note is to merely express my appreciation to you and your department for having Mr. James Barlow handle our Introduction to Investments. This is an exceptionally valuable course to a professional/businessman such as myself. The clarity of his lectures makes a lot of these difficult areas more lucid to the beginner in investments. In addition he has a great sense of humor which moves the class along and highlights many of his points.
