This is coming from a parent. Mr. Brewer is a very nice man. However, I think his class should be taught Senior year. Two years makes a huge difference in maturity, and attention span (level). He mostly lectures. Nevertheless, a great teacher and very knowledgeable.

This is an AP Euro course. He is a great person and teacher. He teaches like a college class and although I sleep in that class often it's really up to the students if they want to pass or not. He's very likable but iffy about his test and it's always online somewhere. This is not a class for your average student that doesn't want to do work.

If a student wants an easy A find a coach to take from. But if you want to really learn and be exposed to a real education embrace his class - you'll be glad you did.

His class is fun, but be prepared to READ. You need to study for the multiple choice tests and remember Persia (politics, economics, religion, social, industrial and art) for the essays.

Mr. Brewer is the coolest teacher I've had in a long time. He is the kind of guy who has the intellect that can insult someone without them even knowing it, even when he is talking directly to them.

Though his sarcastic tone may often provide for good classroom conversation, but the sheer nature of the class inhibits his ability to be likeable to his students.

I recommend the AP Euro for people who like history. I read each chapter about 4-5 times before the test and I did not even got half of the test right. But just do all the outline of the whole chapter and you should get a B

He is a really nice teacher teaching a really hard subject. The only think i dont like about him though is that if your grade is basically .4 or less from being an A or w/e grade he wont raise it up o help you.

Sophmores: if you're just going to AP Euro because it's "AP", then don't go in it. Lots of work, but you actually get to learn something. And outlines do help.
