  • Class rating 5/5
    I don't respect one professor on this campus more than I respect Steve. He expects his students to read the textbook prior to class, and you really HAVE to if you want to understand his lectures. But he explains really well! ...Continue reading

    Steve is awesome. Really knows his stuff, and will teach you a lot. Goes pretty fast but never wastes a second of your time. Highly recommended He's very witty and smart and he's willing to help out students. . Overall, a great teacher for such a boring subject... ...Continue reading

    Steve is easily my favorite professor that I've taken so far at UW. He was engaging, knowledgeable, and willing to help anyone who needed it. His tests were long but there was an insane amount of partial credit, so staying above the curve was very possible. Get ready to fall in love with accounting. He is very willing to do anything he can to help you learn, but will not give you anything you haven't earned. That being said, his lectures are concise, well organized and much more focused on actually assisting learning than many teachers at the UW. If you aren't afraid of work, you'll love this class. ...Continue reading

    Really tough class, but Sefcik does a really amazing job teaching. His class kept me engaged and he inspired me to push myself for the sake of learning. However, his grading breakdown is pretty hard as he puts 30% of the final grade on the final exam. Great Professor who really cares about his students' success. ...Continue reading

    Steve is THE BEST. He makes class fun and if you attend the review sessions you will do fine in the midterms. I recommend taking his class. At 8:30 in the morning he was easy to listen to...entertaining and enthousiastic about teaching. Makes accouting sound fun. Sometimes goes a little fast. Very clear about expectations. Funny guy...he even swears which is nice. ...Continue reading

    Honestly one of my favorite professors I've had at the University of Washington. Tests are incredibly hard, and the textbook isn't extremely relevant, so lecture and quiz section attendance is mandatory. Overall though, Sefcik is an amazing teacher and makes this class worth taking. He wants you to learn, but he doesn't make the class easy. Attend lectures, go to his review sessions, and work hard. One of the best professor's I've had at UW. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    Great professor and great class, but the tests were insanely long and hard. He's very willing to explain issues to students and makes accounting seem simpler than it is. Fair warning though, the midterms are straight forward and like the examples. The final though is a beast in its own right and even with a lot of studying is ridiculous. Tests were extremely long but it was for the better because there was a much larger distribution of grades so the curve was higher. Straight forward and no bs type of professor. The course pack and previous midterms he supplies are SO HELPFUL. If you study and practice you should do fine. ...Continue reading

    Steve was an awesome professor! . he was THAT recommended, and I am so glad I did. He is a phenomenal teacher with a great personality. If Brad Baylock is still the TA even better. It's a challenging course but old tests help! And making yourself known is always good. If you can't get 215 with Sefcik wait to take it! Requires a lot of homework time to understand the concepts. Book is required, and read it before lectures. Majority of time for homework is do practice problems. Your TA will be your best friend. Tests are very difficult. Sefcik is a great professor. This is the weed out class for Foster. So be prepared to work hard. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Great lecturer and overall great guy. He is so passionate about accounting and SUCH a good teacher. However, if you are going to take his class you NEED to read the textbook, do the homework and study. ALOT. He is a tough teacher and you have to work for the grade you want. His lectures are only difficult to understand if you didn't do the readingcome prepared. Very clear lectures and always helps students when they ask. Tests aren't too bad if you review the examples that he hands out. ...Continue reading

    Awesome professor who really wants you to learn. That being said, his tests are incredibly long and difficult, so be prepared for that. He's very clear and knowledgable about the material. Very funny guy, is always willing to help you if you need it, you just gotta go outta your way. I recommend going to the Beta Alpha Psi tutoring hours since they're a great resource to use. ...Continue reading

    Steve is an amazing professor. But he talks too fast and scroll the overhead before I even get to copy it down. Clever accountant that sell most of his materials. I heard he's got a Ferrari! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    I highly recommend you take him as a professor! He explains things really well, but be warn... his tests are HARD and long (but do-able). Homework is NOTHING like the tests. . there are 7 quizzes, but you can drop 2 and they're really easy. Also one easy written assignment. I also had an awesome TA, but he's leaving. &READ the chapters before class!! He thouroughly explains his lectures very well, and he isn't a tight professor. He is very relaxed and wants to make sure that YOU ARE GETTING THE MATERIAL. That's his goal, and he's succeeded very well with me!! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Sefcik does a great job explaining accounting. Even if his class was at 8:30 AM, his charisma woke me up and kept me attentive. Though the class wasn't a breeze, it wasn't so complicated for me. My advice would be doing some of the readings in advance. Most of the people in the class get confused with the concepts, which is what you need to conquer He's an outstanding guy, and loves for you to succeed. Granted, I had to work my butt off but he makes his expectations clear and does everything he can to make sure you get there. But on his exams: Make sure to work fast because they are lengthy! ...Continue reading

    Sefcik is a great professor, and he prepares students for ACCTG 225 better than any other 215 professor. I didn't finish either of them, and my grade wasn't that good either considering how much effort I had to put in. You may end up tearing your hair out after this class but it's worth it. Yes, reading before class is a MUST. But you'll be able to learn all the tricks from him well in class because you don't have to deal with basic understanding issues. His explanations are crystal clear and he is willing to go above and beyond to help you to understand the materials. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Steve is a high-quality teacher. He is amazing. He wants you to succeed more than you want you to succeed. Accounting is a difficult class, but Steve will work harder than anyone to explain to you the workings of accounting. Steve is part of the rare breed of incredibly talented, yet humble people. Steve is the best professor ever. Period. That being said, he takes his job seriously and his tests are very difficult. You will have to work for a good grade. ...Continue reading

    Great teacher, the class is tough but if you have to take it then take it from sefcik. Steve is.. .unconventional, but a great guy and decent prof. You NEED to read the book before class, he won't regurgitate the stuff and it's necessary to understand his examples. He can rant sometimes but it's pretty funny. Hard tests regardless so study tons. HW was easy for the most part. Not very accessible He keeps you awake during the longer lectures. Sometimes he can talk really fast and it can get a bit overwhelming but he brings relevance to everything he teaches and makes accounting really enjoyable. ...Continue reading

    He is a wonderful Professor. He made a very difficult subject (somewhat) easier to understand. Tests were pretty difficult, but he gave you good materials to prep for the test. One of the best t Go to lecture and quiz sections and you'll do fine. His practice mid-terms are a great indicator of the actual mid-term. The book is not so much of a necessity if you grasp basic concepts such as a bond or a bank statement. You get what you put into the class. ...Continue reading

    The hardest class I've ever taken in my life, and Sefcik knows it, but he does his best to make sure you learn. He does a great job of making accounting as interesting as it can be. Midterms are aight, Final blows. Its possible to ace the midterms if you use old tests, but the final has no paper trail. Its his close guarded secret. The final is tough - very tough. But he makes sure you're prepared for the midterms! Get him as a professor if you possibly can. ...Continue reading

    Not necessarily an easy class, but one that was rewarding. Everyone recommended Sefcik, however, I don't agree that he is such a great teacher. Yeah, he is hilarious and keeps everything interesting, but I don't like the format of the class. The stuff we learn in class isn't really relevant to the exams, so I had a real tough time studying. HW is 100x easier than the tests, be aware. Difficult class overall that requires a lot of time and effort, but that's typical of a weed-out course. He also writes extremely long and difficult tests, where students are constantly crunched for time, and seems to enjoy standing there and watching students struggle through them. ...Continue reading

    Not sure about this guy. He is friendly and very charismatic - even to the point where I think he talks just to hear his voice. I hated his final too. It was in a different format from the midterms and poorly written. I would try to take someone else if possible, but I hear Sefcik is better than Wells tho. Good luck, acctg is tough Attendance is a must it's easy to miss things and then fall behind. Luckily, the lectures are engaging and generally pretty interesting. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    hard course, the teaching process was really really fast, must read the book before the class. For his tests the only way to do good is find about 4 or 5 previous exams and go through those a bunch t pertain to the material being covered. Tests are way harder than hw. Average on the 1st quiz was like a 30% so that should tell you how well he outlines and explains concepts. Pray you get a good TA or you are in deep trouble. ...Continue reading

    He likes to do super hard and confusing example problems during lecture that make you frustrated. I have taken tons of classes in foster and this was definitely one of the worst. Completely unorganized, and unnecessarily difficult. I learned very little, even though I got a decent grade. His lectures are useless, each day he rambles about one, maybe two supplementary problems you must learn everything from the book or your TA. He tests material that isn't covered, to realize it was in a much later chapter. The curve is alright just because he purposefully makes the final have a median in the 60s. ...Continue reading
