Moses is credited as the writer of the first five books of the Bible.
How was he able to write about the things that happened before he was born?

this is a good question! I also wondered that too. I remember asking about that when I was younger but I don't think I ever really got a clear answer about it ? 
Would love to hear an answer to this if anyone knows

Well, it couldn't have ALL been Moses ? 

Deut 34 describes Moses' death. 

 

Unless he wrote it knowing how to write his own death... ?

Is the Pentateuch the Books of Moses?

I think it is, but we can understand that in Amos 3:7 God gives prophecies to his servants the prophets, meaning that Moses could have written about the times before and after his death through being given prophecies from God.
