"Gives good feedback" "Participation matters" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Bouvet is a great econ teacher! Yes the lectures are boring, but its econ its never interesting. She is always so eager to help. Always participate it counts for your grade. Go to her office hours(fabulous one-on-one) She is very clear and always has lots of examples for things. Its very difficult, but it can definitely be done! Would take again!!

"Would take again" "Inspirational" "Get ready to read"

Bouvet is an amazing professor and she is very passionate about Econ. Do not expect breaks or getting out early. Her exams are tough but she always gives study guides. Go to class, take very good notes, do the reading, and study for the exams and you will get an AB. I highly recommend taking any classes you can with her.

Going to her class is a struggle in itself. She has a heavy accent so you have to pay close attention to her lectures. Terrible at explaining and answering questions. Definitely avoid taking her. My only D in college so far was from this class, and Econ as a subject wasnt the problem.

She is a great woman always willing to help out. I wish I went to class more. Go to her office hours and she will clarify anything. All you need to do is stay on top of your stuff.

Great professor! I've taken her 204 and 304 classes and she is a wonderful teacher. Online homeworks and quizzes are easy. Exams are tough but the study guides usually match up so study those. Attendance is not mandatory but if you do not attend class you will not do well. Explains topics clearly and will stay on a topic until everyone understands.

Such a wonderful teacher. I was dreading this class, and now it is one of my favorites. She is so passionate and very helpful. If you show up, participate, and study you will without a doubt do well.

Well I got a decent grade so can't complain about that but she was by far the worst professor I have had thus far. Her accent is beautiful and actually not that hard to understand, but she is hard to communicate with, not clear, not very organized and made me feel like I was a cheater, which I'm not. Take someone else.

Don't take her course unless you do not other options. I am an Econ major, and had no idea of what she was talking about. She is not clear on her requirements, and she even forgot about an assignment we had until one of the other students reminded her. She is extremely hard to follow, and seems proud of the 67% average grade in her course.

Had a great time and learned a lot,made me love econ more than I already did. She has tons of knowledge/experience so take advantage. Great help in office hours,pay attention because it's a lot of conceptual learning. Tests aren't horrible make sure to study notes and skim text.

She always talks about how easy her class is supposed to be, its not easy at all. Her tests are not the worst, but they are definitely hard. She has a pretty thick accent too. By the way, if you plan on taking her class at 8am (like I did), good luck staying awake.

3rd Year of College, and Bouvet is the worst teacher Ive ever had. Very thick, super annoying french accent. Good luck figuring out every concept in the class because she certainly isn't going to make things clear for you. Very difficult tests on material that shouldn't be very difficult...Killed my interest in economics. AVOID HER AT ALL COSTS

Waking up for her class was pretty difficult and I almost always left at the break, but if you take notes then you should be fine. The tests are kind of hard, but just study your notes and try to sit towards the front because she has an accent. I know a lot of people that disliked her class, but I really didn't mind it.

Bouvet was the worst teacher I have ever had. This class is so interesting and she killed it. She also makes the most ridiculous test that are impossible to pass. Stay away!

Florence is a decent professor, but she took an interesting class and made it extremely dull. We hardly touched on current issues, even though we are in the midst of an international economic crisis. It seemed like she was completely incapable of lecturing without a prepared script and never gave clear, insightful answers to questions in class

If you go to class, sit in the front and pay attention you shouldn't have a problem. She gives organized lectures for easy note taking and tells you everything you need to know going into a test-no surprises. She has a bit of an accent, but its more charming than confusing.

She is a really nice person if you get to know her. go to office hours, let her see that you are putting effort into her class. Tests are extremly hard but she curves it, you do need to study ! there are 3 tests. There are a few HW packets you need to do! sit in the front of the class, belieave me get on her good side and you will be fine.
