He does his job in that he tries to overprepare you for college classes. But his tests are very nit-picky and specific, and he expects you to do your work. He's not going to give you a slap on the wrist if you don't do something, you're just not going to be prepared for the tests.
He's overly confident, and doesn't like to be wrong. That type of attitude discourages students from participating in the class conversation. My class hardly talked at all because they were afraid of being wrong.

The hardest class I've ever taken in my life. There was a HUGE amount of homework, and a lot of essays. That said, he's a wonderful teacher, and I learned more from this class than others. Great Teach

Can be very closed minded at times and way to sure of himself. His lectures are thorough and informative. Always has to correct a student even when they are right!

Mr. Holmes is a very good teacher if you do your work and actually listen in class. If you don't, good luck passing.

Holmes is one of the most educated teachers I've ever known. He has expectations. His work isn't hard; if you do it, you do fine. You slack? You fail. Simple.

Cool guy. Lectures explain a lot and I understand them. Although, he can be unhelpful and unreasonable at times.

If you do your work, you learn what you gotta know. If you don't do you work, you're screwed. Tough but fair, with good teaching methods.

He takes the term "CP" very literally. He is a good teacher, but is at times disorganized. Overall, he's cool.

Good teacher for good students. If you don't like him, then you are a failure to the American way of life. Holmes, good job!

His sarcastic satire is not amusing, and seems to think he’s “cool”, but he’s only fooling himself! Seemingly playing the victim, he insist his class is easy sailing.
