I am SOOOOO glad I drop this subject in 2007 - I registered, read tut101, and it stated there was no textbook. Then, went to Europe for a holiday, came back eager to study, then WHALLLAAA, you need to get a textbook that was REALLY expensive and difficult to get hold of. And, I heard the subject matter was unforgiving!

Best choice EVER it seems!!

This course is not value for money, the lecture who presents this course is paid for nothing as he does nothing. Assigments is end chapter questions, and scope is read all chapters, what kind of scope is that. The book has almost 100 diagrams and over 700 pages how are expected to remember all that in detail. I dont think they even know what is in the textbook, they just cut and paste last years material that is why they prescribed the textbook that is outdated, they did not even realise until students started complaining. Someone sets the exam and they get memoranda to be marked for them by Markers. Lazy, Lazy Lazy lectures.
