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.
lots of work and tests were hard but lots of extra credit made up for it.
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.
worst teacher ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cannot stand that class i dread it everyday. He needs to improve his teaching skills
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!
he's the smartest man alive. really he knows everything. his class is easy as long as you're smart. if you're dumb you're screwed. he's really funny too. i wish all teachers were like him.
i don't know what any of you are talking about. dr. katz is hilarious. he's very smart, and clear in his notes and lectures. he's fair in all of his grading and actions, and my class loves his class.
hes a good teacher hard at times but mostly good and knows his info
A great teacher. He may be tough but you learn from him. He is also a genuis himself.
alrightyyy..i will agree dr. Katz is extremlly hard...however he is an amazing teacherr..andd he alwayss is their to lend a helping hand. He teachers his class as if we are in college because he know that we have to be prepared in order not to fail. Itss worth it and i am veryy glod i had him as a teacher last year! And hes alsoo a really nice guy..he will help you out if u need it!
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
He alrite I guess because it is a very difficult course so he tries to teach it in a way we can understand but most of the time I still dont get it
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.
I did well in class & was on time.He sucked.He hates students.Felt like we were imposing on his time.If my kid got him I would demand a trnsfr
Hes def hard n talks ALL period long n can make u wanna fall asleep, but the guys pretty chill. mayb if every1 wasnt so scared 2 talk in his class hed ease up.
His voice gets a bit irritating after a while, good teacher, but very hard.
despite what everyone says, he's a really good teacher...
