This course is really content-heavy, although the overall concepts are easy to understand. Lecturers are good, although sometimes move through things a little too fast. Content is interesting, but repetitive at times. The PASS classes are SUPER helpful. Really good for reviewing thins bit-by-bit and keeping you up to track.
Practicals are super boring, but unfortunately examinable. I repeat, don't skip these, they ARE on the exam. Pretty simple stuff and makes for a good brain-break. Also handy for revision throughout the semester.
Plenty of resources available, including a big list of further reading. This reading is NOT compulsory and NOT on the exam, but cool if you're really interested in the topics.
Short resonse questions on the exam should really be extended response questions for the marks their offering, but otherwise the exam is nice and straightforward.
Semester 1 - 2017
Is lecture attendance necessary?
No, BB recordings are fairly reliable and lecturer good at chasing up solutions to any problems that arise
