Sometimes rambles a bit, but he is usually on topic. He's a good teacher, and doesn't strive to make his class overly hard (although it isn't really easy either). He really does want everyone to do well. I went to office hours a few times, and he was always helpful. Attendance is required, and there are quizzes twice a week (plus 3 exams).

He explains things clearly and is really funny. I'm normally awful at languages, but he explained Greek in such a way that I understood it almost immediately. There's a fair amount of work, but it's not too painful.

If I had a choice of gouging out my eyes with a spoon, or listening to Dr. Kovacs' senseless prattle, the choice would be obvious: suicide.

Cute, funny old man, very friendly. He is incredibly knowledgeable about classic drama (although he is more enthusiastic about the Greek plays than the Roman ones). Not too much reading, really easy grader. Not always clear and tends to ramble sometimes, but still a great professor.
