ACCT1101 – Accounting for Decision Making 29.4

Lectures were very boring and hard to get through. Tutorials unnecessary to attend- very long and not helpful. The group assignment was very hard- they expect a tonne of detail and very high standard, especially given its a first year course. Online quizzes are easy marks.

ACCT1101 – Accounting for Decision Making 18.6

The course was terrible. The major assignment especially had no clear instructions and was barely relevant to the VBE that they force you to do. The financial documents did not make sense or match up to what was happening in the VBE. Lectures was overly long and tedious, and did not cover examples very well. Little to no information or support was given for the assignment.

Overall, would definitely not recommend this course.

ACCT1101 – Accounting for Decision Making 43.4

Really a terrible course, lectures were so boring i contemplated suicide on numerous occasions and the tutes went for two hours and were completely useless in preparing you for the final exam. You could literally not go to a single lecture or tute and simply do the practice exam and pass.

Also if this hasn't convinced you that the course is terrible, there is a 30% group assignment that is 100% guaranteed to give you cancer

ACCT1101 – Accounting for Decision Making 44.7

The lectures were very boring and the 2 hour tutorials were not helpful nor necessary. The course is relatively easy if you have previously studied accounting, would not recommend if you haven't. The group assignment is very difficult and the VBE in world sessions often crash/experience errors. The assignment is also difficult if you have bad group members and the tutors mark harshly. The final exam is fairly easy if you complete the practice/sample exam multiple times.

This is one of the easiest courses you'll ever do, granted its a first year course but still, an easy 7 if you watch a few of the lectures and go to all the assessable workshops and tutorials. Be aware though that the group assessment is quite hard if you are stuck with lazy group members so choose them carefully!

Textbook is somewhat necessary as major points in the lecture are back but each chapter (ie week 1, chapter 1).

Great assessment weighting to maximise your grad before going into final exam.

ACCT1101 – Accounting for Decision Making 63.0

Lectures were very boring and tutorial exercises / explanations not helpful as they just rehash the lectures and don't really look at the material in more detail. Luckily it is easy enough to work out the problems yourself from the slides and lectures before the exams. No textbook is needed as all relevant information is on the slides and can be followed easily.

This course is difficult if you have not done accounting before and I would not recommend itif you have no previous accounting knowledge (even though this is a first year course). The lecturer is dull and hard to listen/learn from. You will learn the most from tutes and the workshops, I would defo not miss these.

ACCT1101 – Accounting for Decision Making 29.4

This is the worst Accounting course I have done in my life.

> Formulae that are different from what the rest of the world uses.
> Lot of errors in Quizzes and a lot of ambiguity.
> Supposed to be an 'Introductory' course but doesn't explain the basic principle of double entry.
> Also you have to complete an assignment which involes in analying a company's finacial position (worth 25% of total marks) which is rather a difficult job given that this is an introductory course.

There are no real prerequisites for this course as only basic mathematics is used. The subject was relatively straight forward. Will teach you the basics of accounting which should help the budding economist and businessman with their future studies. Also a great course for any student as the basics of how a business works and what affects it's output is covered. The lectures themselves can be very dull and the average student could get away with not attending them. The assessment consists of a Mid-Sem, Group Assignment and Final. Overall a well structured course with important content.

Pretty easy course. Gives really basic info and glosses over a lot of topics... Would like a bit more detail. Needs to be less general.
