I currently have Mr. Nelson in honors government and he is great, very nice guy who has a good personality and knows everything there is to know about government and explains topics clearly.
Mr Nelson is a great government teacher! I had him for AP gov sophomore year and he did a really good job of preparing us for the AP test, especially in the last 3 weeks of review. The class is pretty easy even if you don't pay a lot of attention. For AP GOV i would say read the textbook before the chapter test because all the questions come directly from it. Don't worry about feeling ready for the AP test, by the time it comes he will have prepared you can you can go in feeling confident!
Mr Nelson is awesome. I had him for AP Gov and it's a really fast paced course, but he makes sure to spend time where it is needed and makes sure you understand the content. Plus he's a really cool dude. One of my favorite teachers for sure.
