It's such a shame that Dr. Katz has such a bad rep. He does what a high school teacher teaching an undergrad college course is supposed to do (I can't speak for his regulars); he provides the information in the textbook in a more simply structured way, and expects you to be diligent, and take the rest into your own hands. He has a great, subtle sense of humor, offers plenty of extra help (for those courageous enough to attend), and respects those who actually DO do what they're supposed to do.

I don't want to slam someone. I just have nothing good to say about Mr.Katz. He's retiring this year, to bad it wasn't last year, this year is just shear torture.

I didn't have him for AP but I wasted my time taking his elective. He taught nothing, what I thought would be a lecture class turned out to be a paper writing class. You'd hand in one paper only to be assigned another one between papers you'd watch clips on the topic of the next paper.

He's funny due to his sarcasm, brilliant as ever, and has an "interesting" yet impossible style of teaching. I had him only my sophomore year, and I just slid by with an 80 average. Make sure you pay close attention in class!

Dr. Katz is definitley one of the best teachers I've ever had. He may grade stuff hard, but his teaching methods really work, and it'll pay off when its time to take the regents. He's really smart too, I have a lot of respect for him. And I hate all my other teachers

VERY difficult teacher and class. Its really a bit too much to expect us to read 80 pages a week out of that impossible texbook. He grades essays very hard too. Fair but very hard.
