One of the best teachers are Vancouver Technical!. His test may seem hard, however with a little bit of studying and common sense you can ace his class. My final mark in physics 12 was 95%! one of the highest in 2011-2012. Chiefly, just take physics 12 AP as it is the same as physics 12.

I had him for physics 12 and he ruined my liking of physics. He was very nice however, I did not like his teaching style. We had 1 lab throughout the year and I think if we had more labs I would have understood the concepts better. You need to take notes on his videos and watch them multiple times to fully grasp the concepts. He is a very intelligent man though.

He gives most of the lessons by video and then assigns work afterward. If you have questions sometimes he will try to explain it to you assuming you also have your PHD in physics. As a result you don't understand half of the things he says because of his very scientific vocabulary. Once in awhile I

At first, I thought he was a pretty bad teacher. Taught you easy stuff in class and made the tests extremely hard, but as I went through the course, he turned out to be a pretty good teacher who knows a lot of good shortcuts and tips. Just watch his videos, follow his formulas

Mr. Best is a weird guy. Kind of fun to talk to, but isn't very helpful at all. His teaching is based on videos.. So if you miss one.. Screwed. He often leaves the class to play guitar in back room.

He's a very good teacher, and almost makes me comfortable with learning science from a man of God.

Hard if you want to get good marks in his class without cheating, because he's condescending and doesn't explain things well.
