    Never did MATH3511, but I have done every single pure maths course at ANU, and then some.
    What do you think about Analysis II and III compared to I?

    I'm probably not the right person to ask about that, since I did Analysis I in first year. Had no idea what was going on the whole time but somehow scraped an 85. i actually did a bit of prep for Analysis II & III before I started them (i.e. googling some of the content) because the reason I found Analysis I so hard was that everything was new and unmotivated. I didn't have that problem at all in Analysis II & III (and the lecturers do make more of an effort to motivate the content - well, as much as you can with pure mathematics). Needless to say, I did much better at those two courses, and Analysis III was probably my favourite course at ANU after Number Theory & Cryptography.
    The gist I got from other students too was that Analysis II, although dealing with harder content, was much more manageable than Analysis I, but that Analysis III was hard.

    Thanks for that

    I am finding DEs much harder than analysis though

    For the easy marks?
    Though given the lecturer and the base of the assignments (really, why not just use something written in the language you're teaching instead of a translation with comments mostly missing?) it's probably more annoyance than it's worth.

    COMP2310 should be fun next semester.

    Indeed, I have better things to do with my rather limited number of Science units I can take, like maths.

    COMP2310 should be fun next semester.
    COMP2310 + MATH2322 = doom. :|

    ANU 2011 Semester 2 Chatter Thread

    Yep, it's late in semester, but it's in time for exams!

    (This is clearly a far more awesome place to complain about exams than StalkerSpace, right?)
