Her tests are very hard. They make the AP test feel like a quiz. Very nice and sweet, never yells. Very hard to get an A or a C. You get a N for work habits if you get a C though. You will feel very depressed each time you see your test score. :D

really nice teacher; tests are somewhat long, but not too bad if you pace yourself (MC can be tricky at times). very little partial credit, but fair. she really knows her chem and prepares you well for the AP test. do the hw (though she doesn't collect it often) because she really bases the test questions off of it. pretty good teacher =)

I honestly think Miss Chow has a better teaching perspective than Mrs. Mynster. I found it more interesting/entertaining in E5 than it is in E8. I bet Miss Chow would make a better (AP) Chemistry teacher. But Mrs. Mynster is tough overall but she's a pretty good teacher. She isn't that helpful though.

Ms. Mynster/Vorak will be one of the kindest and most helpful teachers you will ever meet. She seems to care a lot about her students, and she prepares you for AP chem. Sadly, she is pretty hard, but if you work hard, you will have no problem surviving her class.

I have her over summer for regular chemistry. she's nice and all but she doesn't know how to teach. I think it's because she's been teaching ap chem for so long that she doesn't know how to explain the basic stuff anymore.
