mrs accord is a nice lady, she is veryyy smart and into politics.. THIS IS A HAAAAARD CLASS.. so be prepared.. tests are hard..you absolutely HAVE to read allll the chapters because test questions come from the book and lecture... if you are willing to study hard take this class but if not look 4 another prof bc this is not a blow off class.

5 tests, 5 grades. She gives extra assignments, and they can only count against you. She claims that she wants the class average to be a 75. That is what I got. Her test are over both her lectures and the book. NO reviews given. No laptops allowed either.

She's a fun teacher and conects very well with her studets. Reading the text book is the difference between getting an A/B or a C/D in her class.

I took her for both GOVT 2301 and GOVT 2302. I really liked her. Class is not easy & not a blow off. She does an incredible job of teaching the info & really tries 2 help out her students 2 succeed. Read the chapter & do the chapter outlines. Easy points. Tests are hard so study carefully. Paper/Project is easy if you don't try 2 do it last minute.

I TOOK MS. ACORD IN A SUMMER SEESSION AND THOUGHT SHE WAS A VERY GOOD PROFESSOR, SHE SHOWED A PASSION FOR THE SUBJUECT AND FOR TEACHING! SHE MADE SURE THAT EVERYONE KNEW THE MATERIAL GOING INTO THE EXAMS. HER TESTS WERE MULTIPLE CHOICE AND ESSAY AND THAT WAS ALL (JUST 4 EXAMS). I WOULD RECOMMEND HER, YOU WILL LEARN FROM HER!

Nice professor but if you were to ask her a question she would never answer it. She would say that you will get to it in such and such chapter. I would get someone else

I recomend this teacher for summer. the test are not so hard, there is no extra credit with her, she doesn't give reviews for the test. but the test questions are not tricky like others teachers do. I made a B on her class. and I didn't study that much.

She is very nice, but the tests were pretty hard, and the class was rather dull. Also, the project wasn't all that fun. She expects you to read the entire chapter and outline it prior to class. She's not the worst, but not my favorite either.

She talks a lot, don't take her during summer, the class get boring becuase it is too long. here exams are easy. she doesn't give reviews for the exams. but most of the questions are from the notes. First exam I didn't know what to study so I had a D on that one, but after that one I knew what to study for the others, so I had a B as a final grade.

She is a awesome professor. At first I thought I would never make it through the class but she ended up being my mentor.

I HATE HER!!! Her class is so boring, making me falls asleep, but can't. Attendance is important, and being late can drop your grade. Her tests are stupid since they have are so detail specific. Boring movies too. She talks way too much and loud. She thinks shes funny, but she's not. Don't take her class or you'll regret it

The material is basic, the tests can be difficult to comprehend at times. It's a boring class with very little class participation. Accord lectures over the chapters the entire class time. Some of the papers that were turned in were only graded on completion which is great except none of the students were aware of that. Overall not the best class.

She is hot, but her lectures are boring. She gives a lot of extra credit,so there is no reason why you cant get an A in the class. Her test are of medium difficulty. Just study and you'll be fine. She is not a bad teacher, I recommend.

She's very nice. Her tests are hard and she doesn't give curves but she always tells you what the essay question will be and tells you pretty much what to write for the essay. You just need to be able to expand on the ideas she tells you for the essay part. The multiple choice part is the hard part. Do the chapter outlines because they do help a bi

She has pretty hard tests with essays. There are also a lot of projects. I made a B, but many people didn't even make that. In class, you just look at powerpoint slides that come from the book's website.
