Class was fairly easy, but I felt that his class was worthless since he can't teach. Read the book and you can pass his class without listening to him.

Mr. Westgate is pretty cool. He often talks about random stuff for the whole period instead of teaching, which is fun...but bad if you don't take notes by yourself. Overall, he's a good teacher.
