Tufts University: Charles Murphy - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Charles Murphy | EC007 - Financial Economics | Economics2006-08-19

Review:
This is a course only offered in the summer, and it's well worth the time away from the beach. As with accounting, Charles Murphy takes a dry subject (capital budgeting, bonds, balance sheets, etc.) and makes it fun. He has a positive, energetic teaching style and wastes no time on personal anecdotes or talking in circles.
More importantly, what makes this course great is Murphy's ability to perfectly explain the subject matter. No one ever leaves the classroom confused. Budding investment bankers and other greedy megalomaniacs will love this finance course. I'm not a big fan of grade inflation, but this guy undeniably deserves five stars.

Workload:
The textbook packs over 600 pages, and I found it inferior to Murphy's teaching. Because it's a summer course there's a lot to cram in, but we never came across a question subject that hadn't been presented in class. Slackers might get away without reading the book too much. Three exams (80% multiple choice), including homework due on the date of the exam.

Charles Murphy | EC003 - Principles of Accounting | Economics2005-12-16

Review:
The material is pretty boring and the class draws out forever but thats Accounting for you. Charles Murphy has some funny jokes to make the time go by and is very clear and gives good lectures. Book is also very clear if you need clarification.

Workload:
Optional homework. 3 tests (not cumulative). Tests were fair and were good assessments of the lectures.

Charles Murphy | EC003 - Principles of Accounting | Economics2005-07-18

Review:
Accounting may seem like a boring topic. But Professor Murphy does a really good job at making it fun and interesting. He teaches in a manner which is very easy to understand and is very interested in how your are doing and if you understand everything. He adds in a couple jokes here and there and also adds his personal experiences into his lectures. Definitely a good professor and makes you understand how the money flows in businesses.

Workload:
3 tests and optional homework which he goes over next class. Good idea to do your homework. If you go to all the lectures and take good notes, no need to read textbook. The tests are straight from his lectures and no surprises.

Charles Murphy | EC003 - Principles of Accounting | Economics2004-04-24

Review:
For a subject which one might consider dull, Professor Murphy certainly does his best to make the class interesting! He is a good complement to the textbook since he sometimes tends to explain things better than the book itself. His jokes are funny and you are guaranteed at least a couple of laughs throughout the class. I would recommend his course.

Workload:
No required homework. He assigns practice problems to do on your own and then he reviews them in the next class. It is definitely to your benefit to do these problems - it helps you to understand the material much, much better. Grades are based on 3 exams throughout the semester, including a final exam.
