His AP Chem class is the toughest class available at Bergen, but admittedly he does a great job of preparing you for the AP test. This is the only class where I've genuinely needed to study at home and still barely managed an 85. The tests he gives in class are impossible compared to the super easy questions you'll see on the actual AP test so don't panic if you do poorly on a few tests and quizzes. He prepares you for every kind of possible question on the AP test so PAY ATTENTION AND STUDY!!!!

A genius. Mall guy, if you think this class is hard, it is because you don't know how to study or don't study enough. Take AP Chem for the BBQ.

If your son is going to take honors chemistry be prepared to find a tutor. Dr. Esker rushes through material without teaching much of it. When he is asked a question or a student answers a question incorrectly, he'll ask if the student is a retard. Socially unacceptable, unchristian, and disrespectful behavior. If you thought you would be called a retard, would you ask or answer a question?

I've waited until now to write a review about Dr. Esker. I've hoped that he would change for the better and end up teaching something. So far we have done 19 chapters and I have learned nothing. Esker neither teaches nor helps kids when they ask for help and proceeds to call them retarded if they do not understand a question. I do not understand how students pay $15,000 a year and yet will learn nothing from his chemistry class.

Every morning i struggle getting out of bed because i know i have this class during the day. By far the hardest class at Bergen. You will not learn anything in the 25 chapters that are "taught" all year. Ur grade in this class is inversely proportional to ur suicidal thoughts. As ur grades go down the thoughts go up. Easy class hoagie.

Very difficult class, but masterful teacher. It will be tough, but he will prepare you for the AP exam, and you will have some fun amidst all the pain.

Whether you have him for Honors or AP Chem, he's the man. His classes are pretty hard, especially AP, but he's always willing to help if you go to him after class.

dr. esker teachers honors chemistry, but you learn things that are taught in college.. he teaches way beyond the grade level and this affects man already overworked students. he knows his stuff but is so confusing and fast that if you blink, you could not understand the whole chapter.

chem honors is a really great class to take. It may seem way too difficult at first, but you will pretty much finish the textbook and have a good enough knowledge of chem for the sat 2
