Re: bus stds

To get a 90, not very. Business studies is a fairly easy subject however in order to gain top marks you have to be quite committed, know your content very well and have good literacy skills.

I've got a pretty shit teacher unfortunately the other class has the better teach, can I still do well? I've heard bus is self-explanatory and straightforward and approx ~15 people recieved b6's last year.

I taught myself business studies from a few textbooks and other teachers resources, my teacher was quite average as well.

I'm actually a bit of a business studies in action in fan, its pretty good but goes to unnecessary length and irrelevant tangents in some sections. My favourite, and I've read at least five business textbooks is the Excel book, for me it was the perfect level of detail. However, if your teacher isn't great/you don't have any good non-textbook resources I'd recommend you use at least 2 textbooks.

Yes, it is. However, the amount of memorisation can be minimised through acronyms. A lot is just a general understanding, but a lot is still syllabus bingo.

There's a lot of overlap in some areas, marketing is very similar.

you should make your own notes. or get notes which are thorough, not brief.

then once you've learnt and understood a broad amount of knowledge, make your own micro-summary notes, and memorise those.

also, the red peg textbook is really quite good.

@Roy G Biv and @Phat_tar

How do I incorporate case studies into essays?
(very broad question)
you basically say, "as evident in (case study)" then state your point.
e.g. "as evident in the mcdonalds 2017 business plan, (your point).....this shows that"

hope this helps

I'll probably get them from the library and/or purchase em idk
I have the business in action y12 hsc book.

the 5th and the last one seem good ecause they (i am guessing) explain the dot poits in detail. maybe i might get them for next year. do u know how much they are roughly?
