Coming in for AP Euro I didn't do well, wasn't interested, and fell behind quickly. He did a great job; I aced 2nd semester (& the AP), and ended up being a History major in college. BEST TEACHER!!!

He's incredible at what he does, and very respectable and funny. He doesn't talk much about his own life, and considering how awesome he is, I sorta wish he did, but it's just part of his style. I'll miss him.

Dr. Nikol is the BEST!!!!!! He is SUCH an awesome teacher! As long as you do all his homeworks and take notes and listen in class, there's no way that you CAN'T get a 5 on the AP
