Look, the only way you will struggle in his class is if you dont pay attention in class and doze off ... and even if you are struggling to understand a concept, you just go to him after class and he will sit down to explain it to you
He hates kids who are lazy,,, so dont be lazy... he will love it if you take reponsibility for your learnig and ask for help... just dont ask for help the day before the test... pay attention and you will love chem

Mr. Goodman is a really great teacher. Besides some sayings of how mean he is to students, you can learn so much in his class. He makes the material fun and interesting, and is ALWAYS there for you if you reach out for extra help. He was one of the most supportive teachers iv ever had, and I wish I could have him again.

I can't stand this man- probably knows his subject but AP chem is not a class to just have us copy notes from the board and expect us to understand everything about the subject. he is a really kooky guy (really offensive and mean too sometimes), and if you make him mad he just gives quizzes. it's ridiculous.he has a really old fashioned way of teaching that just wont work with some people. exams are harder than prignano, and teacher is worse. ive always loved science and goodman is just iffy.

He's a great teacher. He makes the material seem interesting. However, he can be mean to students at some times, such as joking around and pushing things too far. He can be very helpful when needed, b

He gives you hard work which he more than prepares you for so it seems like nothing. You will learn and master it all in his class. His teaching methods are awesome and thats that.

The most outstanding science teacher in the school. His AP course may be the best course in the school as well. Very funny teacher- be prepared to laugh a lot in his class.

Goodman is out of his mind, but in the best way possible. He makes chem surprisingly easy, and AP is quite rigorous. As long as you stay on top of the work, the AP willl seem like a breeze.

Great teacher. If you're someone who doesn't care about chem you'll probably do poorly, if you actually try, then his class is easy. Don't be his enemy and the class will be funny and educational.

AP CHEM is an experience. Think carefully before taking. Great course if you can keep up with it though. Goodman is the most accessible teacher I have ever had. Great one on one guy, if you only go to class, you are missing his best skill. Talk to him 1-1

i hate chem, but goodman makes it tolerable. he's willing to explain if you don't understand and he's very old fashioned--he just wants you to work hard. but don't get annoying to him or on his bad side, because he can be really mean and sometimes cruel
