These notes are ~1 double sided page per lecture, without compromising on the required information (thus some are longer)!

This was an amazing subject, a lab every other week, even less, and fun when we did do them. Manageable content and great preparation for the exam!

All the thinking, sorting, analysing, processing and lecture attending has been done for you.

The major points in each lecture are their own headings, with dot points of relevant information below. I have used lecture notes, lecturer's elaborations prescribed text books and additional readings to compile these notes.
