Reviews and tips for BMS1031

Very difficult without any prior physics knowledge. Don't kid yourself, get yourself a tutor (if you can find one) or REALLY hit the books on this one. Fast-paced. You won't learn anything from the labs, as the TAs for some reason just assume that everyone knows what they're doing, and their marking of your work will be just as harsh. HANDY TIP: not every part of this course is going to be in the "custom edition" of the textbook, get in early and borrow/ buy the textbook needed for bioelectricity, otherwise you won't know what the hell is going on. That particular lecturer will provide very little help, expecting a lot of knowledge to come from your own deductions (which is hard when you're struggling with even the basic concepts). BE PREPARED.

Difficult subject without having done VCE physics. However, the lecturers (bar one or two) were very good and really do want to help you. The most stressful part of this unit is the weekly three hour labs. Having to be constantly assessed whilst working in a group environment with inexperienced TAs can be frustrating. However, the basic concepts obtained here is crucial for further physiology units in Biomed.

Besides the annoying and tedious labs, the unit was very well run and quite interesting. Be sure to do the practise exams as the exam was very similar to them for my year. Be sure to put the effort in, especially if you haven't done VCE biology.

can be difficult if you haven't studied physics in your high school. but can make it easy by referring to right books.

A difficult unit for students who have very little (or no) experience with physics. The labs are relevant to lectures and reinforce concepts, but they are very long and tedious, and a lot of time is wasted on pointless tasks or waiting around for TAs. A high score - HD even - is more than achievable if you do the work.
