Tufts University: Drusilla Brown - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Drusilla Brown | EC017 - Quantitative Intermediate Microeconomics| Economics2005-11-13

Review:
Drusilla Brown is THE worst professor I have EVER had at Tufts. The lectures were all over the place, the homeworks varied from ridiculously easy to so hard you want to kill yourself. But the worst part of this class was how random the tests were. The tests had almost nothing to do with what we learned about in the class, the best example being test 3. We had a good 6-8 lectures worth of material that could have been put on test 3, yet almost the entire test focused upon one SMALL concept she taught us in about 15 minutes the class before. Every student I talk to in the class agreed that it was stupid.

Workload:
The book was worthless. It was so complex and confusing, and when deriving equations would often used the dread words "with some simple algebra and manifipulation we get:" and give some new bogus equation that looked nothing like the previous one. I actually started doing better in the course and started understanding more when I stopped reading the book. The assignments were a crap shoot ranging from ridiculously easy to insanely hard. This whole course was based mostly upon luck and guessing.
