My favorite professor at Boise State. Extremely helpful and his lectures are very interesting. He makes class fun! I have taken two classes from him already and plan to take more!

Liberal and puts it in his lectures - but as conservative found it enjoyable. Makes class exciting. Did not read book (only skimmed key words) and got a B+ at end of semester. You can participate but in such a large class not mandatory. Helpful.

Great proffesor, he knows almost everything there is to know about politics its almost ridiculous. He can just spout off random facts from state constitutions and he makes it easy for anyone to understand. Highly recommend him to anyone in any if his classes.

He is a great Professor. Only 3 Exams that are mainly multiple choice with a 4th optional exam to pull your grade up. Although State and Local Governments can get a little boring he always tries to make it more interesting and get the class involved. Would definitely take a class from him again!!!

Great teacher, funny too. Really knows his stuff and does a great job of explaining what could be a dreadfully boring subject. Once you get a feel for his testing style this class is a breeze, but just in case he provides an optional final for a score boost.

Moncrief is awesome. He definitely knows whats up and communicates it clearly and effectively. It is not hard to succeed in this class while still having a life. His lectures are usually very interesting and humorous too.

Probably one of the best professors I've had yet here at BSU. Uses lots of real world examples in lectures, and always asks if there are any questions before proceeding to the day's lesson. Tests are a little hard if you do not read the book. Make sure to take lecture notes as well. Study both and you'll do fine. Highly recommend!

It does not get better than Dr. M. He is nationally recognized as a leader in the study of state politics and their structures. If you want the best of BSU than take any of his classes.

I have taken Moncrief for 302 312 and 102 and loved having him. Rarely does one find a professor that is a great lecturer, a fair grader, and one who assigns reasonable amounts of work. His upper division classes are awesome take them even if your not a poli sci major

Class is relaxed and fun. He has a great sense of humor but his tests are tricky. Don't let his looseness fool you. Actually read and study for his 3-4 tests, listen to his hilarious jokes and its all gravy.

Great professor. Makes a really boring subject fun. Hilarious professor. Tests can be a challenge so make sure you study, especially the text. Offers and option 4th exam to improve your average if you need it.

Dr. Moncrief is a great professor. His tests were challenging, just make sure to read the book and look at all of the extra tables. He likes to throw in trick questions, so pay close attention.

Prof. Moncrief is a great lecturer - he is an expert on his subject and makes it very entertaining. It's not incredibly difficult, but you do need to both go to class and read the book to do well on tests, and tests are the only things that count towards your grade.

Great class. Moncrief is a very entertaining professor and his lessons are great. Make sure to go to class if you want an A. It is also very important to read and study the textbook. The tests have some trick questions that will get you if you do not read.

Probably the best prof I've had while at BSU. Has a great sense of humor and throughly knows his subjects and conveys them well. I wouldn't say he is necessarily easy, his expectations are clear and tests are straightforward, just don't fall behind in the readings.

The tests don't cover a lot of the lecture material, so read the book. He's a great prof, one of the few that will get you interested in the class. Very knowledgeable about his subject matter and he has passion for it. I'd reccomend taking Moncrief.
