mfw picking math3121 over math3411
ayeeee my boi seiya.SEMESTER 1
- Very heavy content based and its a pain to memorise the content.
- Stay away unless you plan on to do CPA/CA courses.
- Not worth purchasing the textbook and its was useless
- Ridiculous amounts of effort assignments that was worth 15% and marked harshly.
- It was boring and painful.
- It sorta like business studies but from a technical perspective.
Lecturer: Eric (6/10)
- Interesting and very enthusiastic about technology.
- Downside is his slides are pictures with minimal text so it was hard to learn. Nevertheless focus on the lecture slides for finals as the bulk of the finals was derived from there.
Tutor: Seiya (8/10)
- He explains the key concepts well and gives useful advice on how to answer discussion questions.
- Very generous towards tutorial participation and encourages students to contribute to maximise their tut marks.
- In addition, apart from teaching, he help students on how to find a job or how to prepare for job interview.
- Downside in his tuts was at times, it seemed that he wasting time and ended the workshops early.
- It was an alright course but it was very boring at times due to the nature of assessment tasks and the topics.
- You have to put a lot of effort to get a good mark. BS alone won't help you if you don't know the content well enough.
- I think this course scales down
For those that are considering MARK1012 as an option for commerce because they've heard its a massive WAM booster - its not. Instead it can seriously bellyflop ur WAM.
Marketings probably the most ridiculous/stupid/gayest subject you can ever do and is horrendously risky cos 40% of the marks are derived from groupwork. IF u end up with international students who can't speak good english/Local students who ended up with a band4/low band 5 in english, chances are UR GONEEEE!!! Some of the tutors are heaps homosexual and have this mentality that everyone should be given a P/C (cos they wanna make this stupid course seemingly hard) +60% of ur marks are class marks...finals can't really change ur destiny unless u fail that.
If u died in MGMT1001, not a good idea to do MARK1012. If ur an eloquent, blond haired, talkative and highly opinionated fella/debater. Prolly gonna end up ur favourite subject...u could even limit the risk by coordinating ur entire class into Law students. Should seriously rally all ur friends into ur class as taht gives u a confidence boost during presentation. Quiz marking/class mark determination is also really subjective...Marking scheme makes no sense (for a question out of 4 ->if student writes this...1.5, if he does this 0.5...the other 2 marks?!?! no idea)
Another weird issue with the quizzes was that u could easily jig a quiz and do it in 2 weeks provided u had a reason?! lik wtf half the class ended up going on a jewish holiday and did it 3 weeks later...when everyone got their marked quizzes back.
EASE: 9/10 contents easy/boring...just have to memorise loads of useless information(preferably entire textbook/lecture notes lik yeah wtf) and quizzes can sometimes ask the most random crap. Marketing concepts are really supid and gay Dogs,Question marks,stars, wtf subject for fags. Loads of acronyms.
LECTURER:1/10 heaviest indian accent out there this mohammad rozzaque. His a lazy fag who doesnt reply on ANY emails -> diverts u to this discussion board which he rarely replies to as well (and when he does its a one worded reply: Yes/No/Maybe). His final was just copy and pasted from this previous final that he distributed to everyone weeks b4. Tutor was indian as well...guest speakers in lectures were indian...everyone in charge of marketing was indian...youtube videos shown were indian...started reading my own textbook with in indian accent in my head fml. His really careless as well - gave us answers that completely mismatched past papers
INTEREST: 2/10 never again in my life
EASE:6/10 some concepts pretty hard but interesting
LECTURER: Kyung 8/10, Humperies 6/10 (he seems like a genius tho)
EASE:3/10 hardest final out there -> everything else was similar to 1131(ie relatively easy)
LECTURER: 9/10 forgot who they were but they were really passionate bout maths
INTEREST: 6/10 did 4U but absolutely no interest
don't touch unless ur maths genius DO 1131 FOR A WAM BOOSTER!!!
Yeah he's like a GOD, don't take him for granted.COMP1927
Ease: 8/10 love linked lists, double linked lists - my favorite
Lecturer: John Sheppard 8/10 - Damn does this guy smoke a bag of weed/hashish before every lecture he gives? He's very nice though.
Tutor: Some guy with glasses 5/10 - flamboyant nerd guy, knows his stuff quite well but very very annoying.
Overall: 9/10 I liked this better than COMP1917 simply because it's not recorded, and that it provides you to think like a Computer science student.
Ease: 8/10 for Calculus 4/10 for Alebgra
Lecturer: DOCTOR Bill Ellis (0/10). DOCTOR Bill Ellis, Shit lecturer - avoid this guy at all costs. Insists him that we must call him by that name (DR ELLIS)- is probably the most stuck up person I know on this planet. He yells at people who try and take a pic of the lecture slides (it's not even his lecture slides, he got it from some other lecturer (the legendary Chris Tisdell's lecture slides). And his actual lecturing style, just repeats word after word from the slides.
Chi Mak (8/10) - good lecturer, draws very cute birds and animates it to the class, which I like! He uploads the whole week's worth of lecturer every Friday.
Tutor: Peter Brown (10+/10) - very knowledgeable and most people on bos knows how good of a lecturer he really is.
forgot the other person (8/10) - good tutor, hands test papers but the same day if you go to her office.
Overall: 9/10 I liked the course, gives a good introduction to linear transformation (which I don't really like) that maybe useful for future studies for computer science
can't be bothered writing up my other course.
It's recommended, by professionals, that you take pictures of the lecture slides with your phones during his lectures. They are not recorded.Yeah he's like a GOD, don't take him for granted.
I've also heard bad things about Ellis, like during tutes he would scream at people who got an answer wrong, you wonder why people don't bother to answer.
Most courses at UNSW are recorded, however the shithouse lecturer (talking about Ellis) writes using the overhead projector, and the recording doesn't pick that up.It's recommended, by professionals, that you take pictures of the lecture slides with your phones during his lectures. They are not recorded.
