04/25/14 - If you are female and/or a minority take the class. Absolutely useless class. Go straight to APUSH much more worthwile.

01/18/14 - class is very organized and structured. Everything on the tests are things we have covered in class, no surprises lucky for us! He prepares well for the ap exam. The class has a great balance between learning in class and preparing for the actual exam. A very nice and funny teacher! Show More Show Less

07/26/13 - You got it all wrong. His class was fun and he was a good teacher. He didn't pick favorites and if he talked to a student it was usually about their sport or their activity. I did well in his class and on the AP Test. I'm guessing your previous teachers gave you too much help. Who are you? Show More Show Less

06/26/13 - The worst teacher I've ever had. He basically picked favorites the whole time, didn't help me with anything, and made me hate my entire sophomore year. I recommend you switch out of his class and avoid him like the plague like I should have done. No idea how this guy has a rating higher than a 3. Show More Show Less

05/19/13 - Not the best teacher, picks favorites even though he says he does not, it's obvious.

I got an A both semesters in his class by just reading the book because he's a horrible teacher and none of the stuff he talked about in class were on the test.

I got a 5 on the AP US test but that was studying with friends because RON CON doesn't prepare you for the AP Test.

If you want AP test review, go to Newhalven or Rife.

If you want to learn all the material by yourself (college prep), stay with Ron

06/06/12 - if you want him to like you, then talk about your race every day and cultural traditions. i mean, his class was a blow-off class and super easy but if you want to be treated fairly switch teachers. Show More Show Less

04/06/12 - If you're looking for chicken scratch on the whiteboard, and even then, only the main ideas, then take his class. Otherwise, don't bother. Show More Show Less

06/13/11 - Yes, he is smart and sometimes we go away from the book, but that's what AP classes are all about. I'm going to an ivy next year. he wrote the letter and his class prepared me. Show More Show Less

06/11/11 - Roncone is a smart man but in class we dont really do anything related to what we are learning. The videos we watch are boring, but when we write essays on them I feel like i actually am doing work. Show More Show Less
