While the content was enjoyable and applicable to my finance major, the lectures left something to be desired. By saying that, however, the workshops followed a strong trend of picking up the slack and allowing you to put into practice what was covered. Further, the assessment structure is in the best format (in my opinion); the THAs build your understanding through weekly synthesis/summary, the assignment allows you to take that knowledge and apply it to an analysis, and the final exam provides a mixture of both.

The subject was run fairly, with the tutorials run by Sylvain providing incredible assistance to both general understanding and assessment. I believe the unit is more than fair in the amount of hints and help it gives students. In many cases, tutorial questions are very similar (the exact same process, just different numbers) to assessment questions. Therefore, tutorials are a must attend. The lectures, however, are dull and designed in a confusing way. I did math B in high school, so I already knew most of the content the lecturer was teaching. However, I believe students without a background in math B or some other similar math experience would struggle to follow the lectures.

I had difficulty understanding the data analysis processes with the lecturer providing incomplete and sometimes incorrect answer sheets that the tutor did not understand. Also, some lecture recordings were confusing and hard to understand. The lecturer however, during the lectures was highly engaging and easy to communicate with in person.

I found that this subject is pretty difficult for students not majoring in maths & statistics like me. The final exam questions requires students to take revision seriously; many students in the past semester was failed & retaking this unit

This unit is designed to ensure that students gain the basic tools necessary to allow them to develop this skill. Students will also gain an introduction to many of the quantitative techniques which will be used throughout their further studies in their chosen discipline. Major topics to be covered in this unit are: Organising and presenting data Numerical descriptive measures Probability and Probability distributions Sampling distributions Estimation Hypothesis testing Regression, and Time-series analysis

strongly recommend LIAM (for tutorials) he is really good in explaining THAs. THA are doable but it really depends on your lecturer and how they mark it. lectures are pretty boring and hard to understand in my opinion.

This is the second time I've attempted the subject ( I dropped out for health reasons). Since second semester 2014 they have added additional content that has made the subject harder and more confusing. They have expanded the assessment and no longer allow you to take a cheat sheet into help with the exam. The lecturers are a joke. Jason Hay brags about not recording lectures 'accidentally' in his tuts and criticises his fellow lectures. Calling their teaching styles confusing and inconsistent. But then rescues to help those that are unable to attend his lectures for whatever reason. As a mandatory subject for the majority of people. I struggle to understand how a lecturer can be so disheartening.

Having to teach myself as lecturer is too confusing and does not explain adequately. Facebook group, Google and Spoonfeed me are my teachers.

Not good at math but did not really need to know more than basic algebra and you could take the formulas into the exam on the A4 sheet. The content is quite dull but with practice... I mean lots of practice the questions are OK. Good thing is that there are lots of questions provided with the solutions. The textbook gives additional practice questions with some solutions at the back. The lectures were faster than I could understand but the uploaded ones were by another lecturer which I found very helpful. If you are worried about this subject the way I was, just do lots of questions and work out why you did not get the correct answer for the ones you got wrong.

I started the semester not so great, thinking this subject was going to be really hard, probably because everyone hypes it up. But in all honestly after fairly moderate effort it actually got pretty easy. The mid semester assignment was very straightforward, just do what like criteria sheet asks and don't pay too much mind to the word limit, I blew over it by about 500 words and got 100%. And the final exam, with the aid of a good double sided A4 sheet is really easy. I do recommend making your own A4 sheet not just using someone else's off Facebook. I had full working questions on my sheet that were verbatim what the exam questions were. It did take me quite a long time to put the sheet together, but well worth it. (seriously I'm talking like a full weekend, maybe 2) I also attended Jenny Houtsma tutorials and they were very helpful, she is really good at explaining things in a dumbed down language. Don't rely heavily on Jason's lecture or workshop recording though as they were terrible quality and basically useless half the time. Overall not a bad subject, very happy with my 7, just don't psych yourself out :)
