Here's a booklet, now copy the things I show you. I'll now talk about science and religion. Go home and study, I expect you to understand everything. Kay thanks. How do you pass his class? Buy the book, buy it. Seriously, its more thorough than him. Do that in combination with youtube videos. You'll understand more in 9 minutes compared to his half an hour lecture.

He won't go and help you. You have to take the initiative, and when you ask he helps. I guess thats another one of his "life lessons". In grade 10 I disliked him but by grade 12 I respected him a lot.

Let's be fair. He knows a lot; he is fun and easy-going. But the bunch of study guides..that's kinda eyesore..which lowered my interest. And you MUST GET A WORKBOOK TO DO IN HIS CLASS, if you wanna jump from 90% to 100%.

His tests are hard, but if you pay attention to what he says and do the practice he gives out, it's all cool. Nice guy, he hates those who don't try, and preps people very well for provincials. Oh yea, and read Hebden

why does everyone hate Mr. Shim??? He is a good teacher and he explains everything, you just need to ask!!! Plus everything we need is in his study guides. He's really easy and he scales our tests down!

While he is hard teacher in terms of work, Mr. Shim loves to teach simply to educate us. In a world full of vain and ruthless people, that's hard to find. A little trick to survive is to listen to him and use Hebden.(A gamer)
