Key Qualities of these notes include:

These notes were instrumental to helping me achieve a H1 score for this subject. They are a product of attentively watching all lectures, writing, re-writing, and condensing the content to create this final tool which can be used for study and assessments throughout the semester, as well as revision for the exam. All the best!
