This class was a full year of tears and made me exmotionally unstable. His expectations for everyone is through the roof and he directly insulted me more than once. However he is great at teaching and despite having a B or C all year I got a 5 on the AP test. The notes and lessons were very thorough and comprehensive but the tests are the hardest things ever. Its a lot of work but it was worth it because i never have to take a math class again

Took APCS this year and thought he was pretty mean, he made several people cry over a couple dozen points, APCS is one of the easiest tests and he made his class hard by throwing busy work around and yelling at the best students for not doing some of it. Had AP Calc BC last year and it was the same story an easy test for people who know math and a rediculous class full of his ego and pointless busy work and mandatory after school time. Don't take him, self study.

He's very dedicated but volatile. He isn't afraid to publicly humiliate you if you aren't focused on Calculus in his class. If you are, be prepared to put more effort into math than ever before. His class is not your traditional take notes, do math hw, test in a few weeks. I would expect to do a lot more in between. Avoid taking more than 2-3 AP's other than his in the same year unless you don't plan on sleeping. Despite it all, his class is worth it.

A very, VERY good teacher. When going into geometry or Ap Calculus B/C, pick Mr. Boogar. He explains very well and it is very easy to understand when you are being taught by him.

DO NOT LISTEN TO ANY OF THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS. yes every opinion of each student will be different, but mr. boogar is truly an amazing teacher who cares more than any other teacher i've ever had. He's strict and at times mean because he's experienced and he knows what's on this ap test, his students don't. that's why he pushes us so hard. he puts t

One of the best teachers I have ever had. No one can teach calculus like him and he does everything to make you pass. If you are not serious about doing well, don't even try because he won't take it.

Hes not a good teacher. He makes everything confusing and hes very mean and inconsiderate. I'm a quiet diligent 4.0 student and he makes me feel bad everyday because he keeps picking on me. Everyday I come into his class knowing he dislikes me and will publicly humiliate me.

Passionate teacher and truly care about the student's math academic performance (helps students almost everyday after school) - however, cannot forget about his HARD tests and quizzes.

Can't teach AB that well. Some students have other things to do and he expects everyone to be able to come after school. He puts tricky problems on his tests. Was hoping to get muller.

I love Mr. Boogar. He's the best teacher ever. He tells the greatest hotel stories. He sometimes gets a little off topic but then he stays back after school to help you. Also, he celebrates pi day,which is so much fun. We had a really fun party last time we celebrated pi day, and he gave us a lot of EC!!! He's th best teacher ever.

As far as teaching goes, he's great.. but he sometimes gets off topic and ends up running out of time for lessons.. he also spends too much time lecturing students about working harder and doing better
