Since I'm stuck on the waiting list for Corporations I'm thinking about taking Federal Income Taxation with Block.
Why is it worth 4 credits as opposed to 3?
Should I be scared?
How bad can a course with an in-class final be?
IMO, Block's fed tax class is a breeze...except her final is an incomprehensible mess. You meet slightly longer each week for the extra credit, but the workload is VERY manageable and the coursebook is straight forward and very readable.
I found it to be the most straight forward class in law school b/c almost every transaction is balanced, and the ones that aren't (such as healthcare, mortgage interest deduction etc) you already are familiar. Block herself is very good at explaining the system, and she's pretty lovable in her own right.
Corporate Tax...that's a whole other story.
