If macro isn't your thing, he'll let you know. He's very harsh but it's because he wants the best for all his students. Despite his harshness, you'll do well in his class, even if you're under class average, you'll be wayyyy above school average. He's approachable and incredibly knowledgable. Content is kind of hard. Make sure to ask him about the time he got help captive in Lebanon! Overall cool guy and he's super nice outside of class but in class he can be a bit much.
a great teacher. thank you thierry for a great semester.
You will do amazing in his class. Don't get me wrong, the course is difficult and there is a lot of material covered. However, he gives ridiculous amounts of bonus points (you'll often have over 100 points, and the extra will be carried over to your next assignment/test). You're gonna learn so much with Thierry, because he's seriously a very knowledgeable guy. Extremely eccentric and a little too blunt at times, but truly cares and is passionate about macro.
I had Thierry for Macro and it was great! Learned a lot about economics and how the money system works, thanks to Thierry's incessant explanations. The exams and assignment can be hard if you do not do the homework, so do it, no matter how many hours it takes. He explains at a high tempo, so keep up, but he answers any questions and is always available to help out. Honestly, you put in a lot of work, and you will do well. Would definitely recommend!
Perfect class if you are interested in commerce or pursuing an economics-related field, as Thierry is extremely knowledgeable and goes above and beyond what other teachers offer for the course to truly inform you of everything you would ever need to know in the field of economics.
However, for macro, if you are a general social science student OR do not plan on going to business school, STEER CLEAR. He admits his class is the hardest of any econ. class in the school! Choose wisely!
Thierry is beyond knowledgable in economics however he teaches at such a high level that it's hard to understand. I do not recommend this class unless you wish to pursue economics later in life and already have an understanding of the economics world. He is condescending and rude to students when he calls on them by singling them out in front of the class. I would not take a class of his again and would not recommend him. But I would recommend buying his textbook for other classes.
Such a confusing teacher. He just rambles on all class so you really have no notes to write you just have to read his textbook which is boring and confusing so youre basically teaching yourself. Exams are hard and he picks on people a lot because no one knows whats ever going on in the class. DONT TAKE HIM.
Thierry is a very good teacher. Despite eccentricity and his pickiness with your work he knows what he is talking about and really wants to make sure his students understand. Watch his videos and pay attention in class ad you will be just fine. It is also very easy to get 100% in this class if you put the work in.
There is A LOT of work in his class. His notes are so unclear!!! The only thing that helped me survive was his book. The good thing about his classes are that you can do test corrections to make up for the points you lost (1/3). Hes a nice person, cracks jokes and will help you when you're in need, but theres a looott of work & his tests aren't easy..
Straight up one of the best teachers at Abbott, he goes way beyond what is expected at the CEGEP level by giving his students the practical applications of economic theories. I'm a finance and Econ major and I'll still go through his book every now and then to review some topics because his book. Brilliant teacher, -although he does have some biases- but he is always open to debate. Plus he lets you redo exams. Literally impossible to fail or do poorly just show up and do your homework.
Took Thierry for Macro. As a person, Thierry is really nice and friendly; however, as a teacher, he was kind of unclear. He skipped from topic to topic way too quickly in class, and I had to really read the textbook several times to understand the material. He cares a lot about his students and will help you if you ask. Gives a CRAZY amount of bonus points. If you work, you can pass the course and maybe even get 100. But there was A LOT of work, especially since he doesn't explain that much.
By far the WORST teacher i've ever had at John Abbott. This teacher basically goes on and on from his textbook, all to basically go to class and hear someone recite a book to you. Does not care about his students, will take off points for the most useless things, wants things done HIS way or else it is not up to standards. Overall arrogant personality, thinks he is such a great educator when he is just a horrible teacher. Stay far away, do yourself a favor and have someone else teach you micro.
Thierry knows what he's talking about and tries very hard to make all his student succeed in his class, will provide extensive information about whatever you may need. You do need to be relatively serious about doing your work to take him. Highly recommend him.
Thierry is the worst teacher I have ever encountered. In fact it is an insult to even call him a teacher. He is rude, passive aggressive, and needs constant validation that he is needed and smart. He thinks way too highly of himself. Should not be allowed to teach at all.
Explains everything very clearly. Very smart and funny teacher. I highly recommend him.
Yeah I failed the course, but that was my fault. He's a good teacher I'm taking him again next semester hahaha oh well
I loved this guy! Great economics prof! He goes above and beyond what is required in order to ensure his students' success.
Extremely awesome teacher. Best teacher I've had in my educational career yet. He teaches you macro for real life so that you actually learn something useful. He's very enthusiastic as a teacher and is extremely approachable. A very nice person :) You have to work a little in this class- read the book so you can keep up. He has his lectures on YouTube if you need help and he is always available to help through email. Planning on taking for micro next semester. Highly recommended to as a teacher.
AMAZING TEACHER! I loved having him in macro! If you can, take him. He wrote his own textbooks and they're amazing each chapter has a review quiz and questions on the chapter. If you do the multiple choice review you'll for sure see similar questions in the exam. There are no surprises what so ever in his exams part multiple choice part problem solving. He's super friendly and a great teacher he even lets you correct your mistakes in your exams to have the chance to get back 1/3 of the points.
He's crazy - but he's the best you're gonna get for a macro teacher. He's funny, bordering on offensive, but it's better than being a total bore - he's always engaging and he tells you stuff that's actually relevant so you can see real life applications of the course content. Also, it's basically impossible to fail his class, he gives out so many bonus points it's insane (I finished the course with 100% - with probably like 30 bonus points to spare).
This guy is nice out of class, but as a teacher, my god. There are many things wrong with the way that he teaches. The beginning of the semester was very relaxed. We had many 3 small homework assignments. As we're approaching the end of semester, we have an assignment, test, or project due almost every class. This doesn't include the mind-numbingly boring textbook, video lectures and class lectures that you're expected to keep up on. Stay away because this class is going to ruin my semester.
Supposedly he is the best Macro teacher at Abbott. I personally didn't like his dry humor and boring jokes, he rambled a lot and made it difficult to concentrate. He gives practise exams a week before the actual test and the test is in the EXACT same format and has similar questions, so do the practise test! He even marks the practise test for you (not for grades) so you know how well you would do on an actual exam!
I was really not looking forward to taking macro but Thierry made it extremely bearable. He knows everything about the subject, he wrote the book used, and is really clear in his explanations. He gives bonus and marks like theres no tomorrow and his tests are always on more than 100. If you you get 104/136, you have a perfect test. His tests are very reasonable and I highly recommend him.
Personally I do not enjoy his class, but I can see how if you were interested in economics you would like it. He talks A LOT and will never let you go even 20 seconds early, but he gives you plenty of opportunities to raise your marks if needed which is a good thing.
If you have the choice, take Thierry. He will strike you as slightly crazy at first, but you'll get used to it. He talks a lot. Buy his book and keep it for university, he wrote the entire thing. All his exams are multiple choice, but don't assume they will be easy, because you really have to memorize the details to be 100% sure about the answer. Calculations take you back to grade 9. Bonus points like I've never seen before... 96% was my final grade.
He is the best teacher I ever had. I had him for both macroeconomics and microeconomics. He explains the assignments well, gives bonus opportunities, and pretty much jokes around a lot which made me love the subject. If you want to have an easy and fun economics class, then take him.
He is the best ! believe me ! lots of work but you'll pass with a great grade if you did all the assignments on time !! he was amazing !
Thierry is the best Macroeconomics teacher at Abbott, if you are not great at math take him, he is a really good teacher and actually cares about his students. Thierry will do everything he can to get his students to pass because he actually cares.
very good teacher but be prepared to work hard if you want a good grade, besides that hes really easy. study the book and listen in class and youll do great. takes attendance so be there. very helpfull.
really amazing teacher! HE CARES ABOUT HIS STUDENTS! he give buns points all the time but the trick is that to understand them you have to go back in the book read it and understand it...you work for your grade but you get what you deserve! he is so kind and generous and makes class enjoyable....if you do all the work and extra corrections and exercises you can end up with high 90s easily! so yeah thierry is amazing :D
He is GREAT I LOVE HIM !!! so passionate, a great teacher and a great guy!!! take him, he will make macro 1000000 X easier!!!
Everyone should take him! I have him for macro this semester. He is so enthusiastic about whatever he is talking about which makes you interested. It is impossible to fail his class because he gives so many opportunities for you to boost your mark,
He is absolutely my favorite teacher at John Abbott. The class average is really low, but I don't understand how. I'm not an especially great student, and I finished with an 86. He gives you countless opportunities to make up lost marks and the homework assignments are exactly the same as his examples in the book. He truly cares about every student and I love him for it.
LOVED HIM AS A TEACHER! Simply, the best! He is Funny (and your in economics!) he helps you as MUCH as he can, (giving out bonus points each time he sees an opportunity) he sincerely wants his students to succeed. He is approachable, the work load is appropriate for the course load, I ended up with 84 (
I love Thierry! I had him for both micro and macro. I don't think i'd recommend him as much for micro as I do for macro. Micro is a much harder subject and sometimes he doesn't explain things as clearly which makes it difficult. But in all he is a great teacher. He gives a lot of bonuses and lets you do tests corrections for bonus marks. He's also super nice! One of the best teachers are abbott!
He knows more about economics than anyone, his passion is contagious! Just work hard and do the readings!!! he offers part marks and other ways to improve, he is a GREAT teacher and makes class fun:)
There are teachers, there are good teachers, and then theres Thierry Neubert. If you're a hardworking student and are willing to learn you'll love him and you'll do amazing. Best teacher at abbott.
Hes amazing!!!! :) super helpful always available to clarify and really cares about his students. Theres a lot of opportunities to make up marks so your bound to do well
hes a great teacher and makes classes interesting. you can easily get good grades but be ready to work. if you slack in this class then you will fail. he gives u everything you need to do a good job.
TNs class is hard but he's an amazing teacher and if you're willing to work hard and do the work you'll get an amazing grade. He's amazing such a good teacher. Finished with 95. Possible to get 100.
Excellent teacher. really cares about students. easy to reach for help. gives many bonus opportunities. really knows his stuff. if you do the work, you will do well in the course.
Not an easy teacher, but he lets you redo questions you got wrong on the test. The workload is demanding, but if you do it all you'll pass. If you understand at all you'll get a decent mark. take him
anyone that rates this teacher poorly is simply foolish you want to take him, if you give any effort at all your bound to pass and if youa cutally try your grades will be great awesome teacher!
easy class if you put a little effort, just like he sais " this class is designed to make you pass if you at least try a bit" nice teacher, likes to try and be funny here and there, i would say the on
Great teacher,good grade if you work at it .tests are a little confusing,as he makes them himself,and the wording is sometimes difficult,but there is test corrections.Must be passionate to the course
easily the best teacher at abbott. The only teacher I've met who doesn't give the impression that what he does is a job; he truly cares about his subject and his students. Best teacher I've ever had.
By far one of if not the best and most insightful teachers. The definition of altruistic, helpful, insightful and generous. take him for macro and micro
This guy really wants to help his students to make them suceed. He really loves his job and it shows, his enthusiasm helps make this course quite interesting. If you do all the work, you cant fail
best teacher ive ever had, theres a lot of work involved but you learn so much from it. if you have the opportunity take him
AMAZING teacher. you have to work in his class a LOT, but he gives bonus points for everything. his assignments can be on 120 and guess your mark on his test and you get 2%. Super helpful and devoted
where do i begin? first, the rudest teacher i have ever had! his test are hard and his assignments are too long:S take maztorinisss
In 3 years of cegep this was by far the best teacher I ever had! I have never seen a teacher put so much effort into making people learn. Best teacher ever by far!!
Best teacher i've had at abbott.. really cares about his students who actually do the work and care about their grades. He's really smart and knows his stuff and his book is really helpfull
Very experience teacher, everything is in his book, a lot to read but easy to understand. Very good teacehr
My favourite teacher at Abbott!! He's a great guy and really wants you to do well. Although you CANNOT be lazy in his class. If you put in the effort, so will he and your marks will reflect this. TAKE
Overall he's a good teacher.I had him in both macro and micro and the courses are pretty similar.Long assignments,dont start the night before its due! I still got over 80 in both but worked hard too
wonderful teacher. i can't say anything bad about him. you must be willing to work...but that's just how things work so deal with it.
Thierry Neubert is a teacher who insults students in class, send too many emails daily about how he doesnt care if you fail. Not a good teacher and insulting as a faculty member.
Thierry Neuebert is an amazing teacher overall. Unfortunetly he gives way to many assignments, he should teach university not cegep. His notes are all over the place and not easy to uderstand so use the book.Very nice guy tho
For every question you will ever get, there is an incredibly similar one in the book. How to succeed? Do everything he gives you, and hand in early, bonus points for basically anything.
he's really nice and he's a good teacher.. but there is soooo much work! assignment after assignment - there's no end! and they aren't easy either. so if you don't like to work, get outtt
I have to say i hate this class, and this teacher didn't help the rating. WAAAAY to much work!
He is likely to be the most helpful Economics teacher out there, or at least the most knowledgeable. This guy is so passionate about his subject, it actually made me like it too :P ! Take Him, Great teacher overall.
he is really nice and funny but there is a lot of work involved. and you MUST read his textbook before the lecture or else you will have no idea whats going on. a really good textbook though-im keeping it
He's a good teacher, but his assignments are SO LONG and some of them are impossible...
No need to take notes. All you need during his lectures are a highlighter and the course book. His lectures are verbatim from the book. Just highlight the important stuff he mentions or anything he writes on the board and your set. The only thing I can complain about is the really LONG assignments. The tests are easier than the assignments, they are so long.... he's a nice guy though, likes to make lots of jokes, I enjoy his class.
amazing teacher, take him if you want to pass, and actually learn some economics at the same time!!
the greatest teacher at abbott! he loves his job and makes it impossible to fail his class. i didn't try all that hard and got an easy 90! Amazing teacher for macro and micro
I had him for both Macro and Micro. Best teacher I've ever had. He loves what he does and genuinely cares about each of his student's understanding.
a great teacher. funny. very willing to help you with your questions. as long as yoou do the work it's hard to fail the class. do the sample tests, they really help prepare for the actual tests.
He was a good teacher and always said that it was impossible to fail the course if you did your work. If you do that assingments (they're long) & the practice tests then you should do fine in the class and get help if u need
not particularly easy / but virtually impossible to fail / great and very funny teacher - take him
hes macro class was easy, do the assignments, read the book take notes and no problem to get 90s, Micro was hard, its confusing at times but by the end u understanding allot. great guy his jks are good.sometimes, take him
best teacher for course although its a hard course so manny bonus points available
As he always says, he's rarely had students fail who have done all the work. He's right. I tried Macro with other teachers, didn't like them, took Thierry's class, and wound up taking Micro the next semester. Great guy.
realllllly good teacher, you cant fail he gives you every chance to pass, exams are a bit hard but hes the best economics teacher!
Don't bother to take economics with any other teacher! He's amazing, super understanding, and it is absolutely impossible to fail unless you just don't hand ANYTHING in! and even if you do that he has make-up projects! He actually made economics easy and more interesting than it should be! TAKE HIM!!!
Great guy who makes Macro interesting and bearable. He gives so many bonus marks away that i can't imagine how anyone could fail his course. Put in a half decent effort and you'll get the high 90's for sure.
Nice guy, lame jokes. tests are hard but gves you plenty of chances to make up lost marks. Bad subject, good teacher.
absolutely one of the best teachers ive ever had. He helps like there is no tomorrow, his class is easy (well as easy as macro and micro get)...he's funny and weird, pretty interesting compared to other more boring teachers! he's the best economics teacher u can get!
one of the best teachers ive ever had, sometimes a bit fast but he wants you to pass the course. very helpfully and nice. Take him!!!
Thierry is the best macro teacher! he will do whatever it takes to make u understand if u go see him during office hours and he can explain it to you in 4 languages. he loves teaching macro and has a big passion for it. there are 7 assignments, 3 tests, 1 project (worth 10%), and thats it. i didnt like economics before i had him as a teacher. very good, generous, and helping man !!
The best macro teacher you can get. Don't ignore him, take him, if u wanna do well in this course
A very good teacher. In order to understand his class, you must pay attention to his lectures, although at times, especially at 8:30 in the morning, they are a bit difficult to process. He is an extremely fair teacher! If you do the work assigned, you will do very well! He's enthusiastic and humorous.Overall, definitely enjoyed him as teacher even though I disliked macro as a course.
TN is among my 2 best teachers in college. He will give u EVERY chance to pass, but you just have to take them. These things include test corrections,bonus marks, extra assignments, review sessions,etc. but one logical thing is evident. if u want that extra mark you actualy have to put in work. For sure coming back to his micro class, hes a nice and at times funny guy. He is logical to reason with when u think something was marked wrong,etc.
He's good and wants his students to pass but his lectures are not easy to understand and he goes way too fast.
Amazing teacherr, wow his realy teach and you, you have to lean this is your job. i'm so happy that i had his class and i meed one of the most coolest teachet in this planet ;). you'll learn a lot at that class.
He is THE BEST!!!!!! TN is a very nice teacher that encourages hard work. He gives Bunus Marks (but you also have to work for it) and is always trying to help his students. He is always making jokes and some times he wonders too much, but it's ok tho. Sometimes, he gives review sessions before the exams to make sure that every one understood the material. TAKE HIM, You will have a very nice experience!
Great Teacher! Take him and you won't regret it! He makes sure that you understand everything and gives bonus marks!! He makes sure you pass which is awsome!!
reallly good teacher!i got 20% in one of my exams and always had low marks and he made me pass! REALLY NICE TEACHER!loves teaching and helping others, TAKE HIM !!!
Best teacher for both Macro and Micro. Very easy to get 85+ in his class. Makes courses very easy and its very easy to do extremely well! Must have!
hes a very cool teacher. very smart. also he speaks many languages.he always speaks to me in chinese.its easy to pass bu you have to do all your assignments!
