Tufts University: Drusilla Brown - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Drusilla Brown | EC017 - Quantitative Intermediate Microeconomics| Economics2005-05-02

Drusilla Brown is quite possibly the worst professor I have ever had. She lacks entirely concern with students' progress and adopts an attitude in office hours that I would almost characterize as outright hostile. Furthermore, her lectures lack organization as she suddenly jumps from one concept to the next, this makes taking good notes difficult and confusing. Most importantly however is that her tests, and therefore your grades, do not reflect in the slightest what you have learned in the course. While the first test was difficult, but fair, both subsequent tests were entirely on topics that were covered only quickly and superficially in lecture. Though I learned a fair amount from this course, it was despite rather than due to the quality of the professor and I will never take a course taught by her again. I should also note that my sentiments are not those of a single disgruntled student but are shared by most of my classmates and even students I know in her EC0161 class.

The assignments, I must note, do correspond fairly well to the course material. They are assigned weekly, with a few exceptions, but are pretty straightforward and would serve as good practice if the exams actually reflected the course material as well. The course overall is interesting, not to mention a requirement for quantitative economics majors, however the book we used goes far more in depth than the course requires, it is therefore not possible to simply read the book and disregard the bad lectures.
