HE really does talk a lot, he like the sound of his own annnoying voice, but other than that he is a gret teacher, he knows what he's doing and if there is no one in the class who destubres him, its 5

He talks too much. His class is extremely boring, but other than that he knows exactly what he is doing and will prepare you really well for the regents.

One of the WORST teacher I every had! Had him in 1991 and still remember how awful he was. This guy simply could not explain the material. A decent person, but definitely not meant to be a teacher.

Baum is an awesome teacher...he makes jokes in class and tries to make his students understand the material. He also has high rates for people passing the physics regents.

Had him a few years ago for Physics. He talked way too much about how awesome he was and spent absolutely no time explaining anything. I think he secretly thinks the world is out to get him.

Had him twice. He loves to talk but if you honestly do your work and talk to him if your having a problem you will eventually pass with him.

He never taught me a thing becaues he was too busy talking about himself and his made up stories of him inventing the MRI machine and a whole bunch of other things. I had to learn by self teaching.

Mr. Baum, he is often off the topic but he is a nice teacher. He teaches in a very little amount of time but his lectures and lessons are easily understandable.

He's not so bad. Although he is often distracted by administrative duties, he is clear when he has time to do the lesson.

If there is any possibulity to have Baum, don't take Physics at all! Slow student killer, that's what he is.
