Comment:
This class boiled down to reading the textbook and being tested on it. The quizzes were overly easy, meaning that studying is not rewarded and everyone is getting curved. Maybe he's better in person, but you'll get the same learning experience by buying the textbook and reading it alone, so if you actually want to be educated go somewhere else.

super easy, he cares a lot about the topic and it shows through how much effort he puts into the class, does a lot of work for the students so you dont have to, lots of slideshows and the quiz's can be found using the find feature, so it doesnt take long. i really enjoyed this class, lots of good fun and information

Comment:
Passionate and caring, but the actual courses arent great. Lectures are sometimes rambling. Exams often focus on arbitrary information and include an essay that the student must memorize sources for which is nonsensical. 372 is informative, Id recommend it. 260 focuses much more on the history of religion than politics, I would not recommend it.

Thought this would be an easy class, but it really is not. The exams are hard and kinda long. You learn so much in class but the exams seem to focus on weird things. The information is interesting, however. Dr. Amore is also very knowledgeable, and he has great stories to share. He is nice also, answers your questions.

Amore is a fantastic prof. He's incredibly knowledgeable, and you can tell that he likes what he's teaching. He gives you every opportunity to succeed - he even highlights information on his power points that are exam material. The textbook reinforces the lectures, if you've missed a class you could definitely just read the chapter to catch up.

Comment:
Dr. A is a really nice guy that will bend over backwards to help you or answer a question. He posts slides and you do need to do some of the readings if you want a high mark. His tests give you the option to write about what you want so pay attention to current issues. Details in multiple choice but very broad essay questions. Very smart.

Comment:
He is a great person; however, his expectations are a little too high. His exams are ridiculously hard. You basically have to have the whole chapter memorized as well as the research essay he gives for each one. His voice is a little monotone so even though the material is interesting its possible you will have to skip class to avoid sleeping

Nice guy but his midterms are ridiculous, don't expect an A in the course. He also does not know what an essay is.

He is a good prof. not great but ok. his world religion class is ok. He is fairly easy. If you attend all his lectures and just read over the book you should be able to get an A for sure. Good teacher.

What a great guy! His lectures were very interesting, and he genuinely cared about the subjects and the students. I found the exams to be brutal even after I read the text and attended lectures. Mainly fill in the blanks and S.A.. Def. take this class if religion interests you.

You'll never meet a more nicer, caring professor. When he says he wants you to succeed, he GENUINELY means it. If you prepare for his exams, getting 80% and above is attainable. Attend as many lectures as possible because he puts a few trick questions in there for those who don't attend (relying on web notes). He's also VERY approachable.
