He gives quizzes every week which are usually straight forward questions. Make sure to always hand in your homework in on time and make sure your answers are right. I recommend writing everything down because you will need good notes to study from. He does seem to favor certain students which was very unfair.

Goodkin is so far the best science teacher I've ever had. Honestly, I've never done so well in science before i came to his class. He makes things easy to understand and has the most awesome powerpoints. And even though he might be telling stories all the time, they relate to science in a way that we CAN understand. But you gotta agree, better than baez, gentile, ford and speziale HANDS DOWN.
