I took Professor Moore for 152 my freshman year so I knew that his ecology class (317) was not going to be a walk in the park. However his lecture style, coupled with the class discussions we had, made studying for ecology much easier and more intuitive. He also did an amazing job relating ecological concepts to the environments in Virginia and vcu

I had Moore for summer and while I admit the class was VERY difficult, if you put forth the effort there is no reason you cannot make a decent grade. His tests are designed to trip you up but overall I feel the class and his teaching style prepared me for upper level biology classes much better than an easier professor would. Entertaining lectures.

Such a hard course despite simple course material. His tests are incredibly difficult because his mentality is basically, if you're succeeding, you're not learning. Information is clearly taught, but the tests are incredibly difficult.

STAY AWAY FROM MOORE!!! His lectures are hilarious and very entertaining, which keep you on track but no matter how much you study, the tests are difficult like no other. He gets pleasure at the fact that his exams are nearly impossible and students can't do well. DO NOT TAKE HIM. You will regret it.

It is so ridiculous how hard this class is for a 100 level course. He finds pleasure in stressing out his students with his awful essay exams. AVOID HIM AT ALL COST

One of the most difficult/best professors and the most difficult/best class of your career. You will love him but you will hate him. This class will ruin your GPA if you don't come out of it with a good grade and on days it seemed that was going to be impossible.

Moore is ridiculous. The tests are extremely difficult and confusing. He makes it impossible to pass a 100 level class. Bio is hard, but shouldn't be impossible. People have other classes to worry about. Don't take him unless you are willing to make this class your life. Even then, you might not pass.

Moore is hilarious and a great teacher, but he's not easy. The exams are extremely challenging, and you have to know, understand, and apply all material (not just regurgitate). This was the hardest class I've ever taken, but it wasn't impossible and it was also the most rewarding. Be warned, if you don't have the time to put in, you won't do well.

Tests are extremely difficult, but if you actually study, then cell bio and genetics (BIOL218 and BIOL310) will be pretty much a breeze!

Moore's class is tough. Some days, you just bang your head against the desk and cry. It is one of the most intense classes you will take at VCU, but it is worth it. I learned so much from the class, and it is great prep for pre-health folks. Moore is sassy, but he's a great guy. He does help his students out, and he's pretty entertaining and nice.

This class is very hard and makes students go insane (as you can prob. tell by the comments below) because you have to devote hours and hours of your time to study for practicals and still not get the results you want. The reason why this class is so hard is because there is just too much information given in too little time.

It is true, Moore seems more like an entertainer than a professor, but he entertains because he knows that way you will remember the silly way he described a biological concept. This tests are hard, no doubt about it. If you don't study, you won't pass. If you want to learn take his course. You won't be disappointed.

Mr. Moore's class is a disaster. He is an entertainer not a teacher. His test are not reasonable, he also makes many mistakes grading. He calls people out in front of the whole class and drills them for info but never takes the time to explane the answer. DON'T TAKE HIS CORSE.

He is extremely hard, you can study your butt off and it will seem as you didnt study at all when you take his tests, if you want a good GPA do not take this class, one test average was a 60 and he said it was too high, I would not recommend taking him for bio 152.

Great professor but tests are extremely hard. Drawing questions and short answers on very specific topics make it extremely difficult to pass. Highest average test score this semester was a 66%, highest its been all semester for us. Save your gpa, its not worth the "challenge".

Awesome teacher, and explains everything in massive detail which is very helpful for future classes aswell. However tests are harder than anything ive taken before and i used to not even study for easy A's so unless you are a no life genius with no friends and just sit in your room reading books, dont take the class =D
