His tests are impossible. Definitely has favorite students. Ignores the ones he does not like. Do not take his class.

Being a hard teacher doesn't mean you're necessarily a good teacher. I heard his class was hard and thought it would be good - no, it's just a mind-boggling amount of note taking and rapid memorization. Of course the only purpose is to prepare us for the AP exams, not to really teach anything, but it's still disappointing. Your whole grade depends on interpreting deliberately ambiguous multiple choice questions. That isn't a way to prove what you've learned.

Hearing he had such a hard class, I thought it would be a good class and I would learn a lot. Not the case. This is rapid memorizing, not learning. He also seems to think every student in his class takes no other classes besides his. His ego is pretty amazing.

This guy has issues- issues I tell you- I don't understand what is going on with him. He is like one of those cranky college professors who is picky and biast about every little thing. I have him for AP US history this year- and he is SO BIAST. He makes hard tests and covers material which the AP exam does not even cover! This guy does NOT like to give out As. ONLY TAKE THIS CLASS IF YOU ARE FINE WITH A LOW C.......or even worse. The other teachers in the school are much more lenient. HE'S BAD

Mr. Wurster is the man, he makes sure that the class completely understands the topic, and he himself is very enthusiastic and seems to love teaching history thus creating a trickle down effect onto the students, other than the fact that we take a lot of notes , but we get to use them on the quizes, and his test are fair game, wish every teacher would teach like him.

The only reason that he isn't easy is because he teaches AP Euro the hardest class ever. He is very funny and is nice to all the students. He has favorites, but treats eveyone equally. He is going to

He is tough but fair. If you do your work and aren't disrespectful, you'll be fine. Those who are complaining probably did something to make him mad.

I learned a ton from his class, but I think his personal relationships with students & his tendancy to favor gets in the way of the fact that hes a good teacher
