STAT2202 – Probability Models for Engineering & Science55.7
This course had weekly quizzes and plenty of assignments. Fortunately, if you get a good tutor they may take you through a similar question prior to quizzing you, which I found very helpful. The formula sheet was the most helpful for a quiz, however, knowing what was learnt each week in the lecture slides is also helpful. I didn't understand the lecturer very well as I found his accent was very thick, so I resorted to reading the slides on my own at home. Side note, I definitely wouldn't bother watching the lectures at home because on 1.5 speed his sentences sounded like gibberish. The lecturer also decided that using Dropbox was how he was going to sort his documents, so the STAT2202 blackboard was poorly organised and documents were tedious to access. In the end, the content is pretty straight forward and involves you mainly understanding a tonne of equations. I would not recommend always playing catch-up just before a quiz or assignment, but stay on top of the work each week and that way studying for the exam is predicable. Past exams are helpful and the final isn't much of a surprise.

The course itself is very interesting and intuitive as it joins in with the concepts introduced in ELEC2004. As the semester progresses however if you find yourself falling behind, this course is not the course to slack on. Keeping up with the content and having a solid understanding of the concepts is KEY for passing this course.
Leonardo is an excellent lecturer who knows his content but every now and then you find yourself asking your mate what he said a second ago. Watching his videos on echo360 is always good however you can't really understand anything if you go any faster than 1x speed.

Is lecture attendance necessary?
Is the textbook necessary?
Course content is very interesting
Assignments are VERY doable
Tutorials help reinforce the concepts taught in lectures
Not much time to keep up if you fall behind
Have to watch videos on normal speed to understand
If you miss your tute, you'll most likely lose the marks for that week
