This set of notes provide comprehensive coverage of the entire semester of Media 1 Lectures and related readings as conducted by Chief Examiner Sharon Rodrick. Essential materials would be included, especially with the assistance of lecture recordings, which were not usually provided, post-test (extremely important for the exam).

Further, an 'overview' of the entire subject has been laid-out in a content-style page, with important headings and sub-headings noted with page references (to the notes) also included. This would assist in issue-spotting, ensuring that you do not miss out on important elements of the question!

Potential policy questions, where applicable, are also included within the topics to ensure you would not be caught out by the policy questions on the final exam!
