BIOL 317 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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

BIO 152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

BIO152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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

Bio 301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

BIO 152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

BIO 301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.
