Nathan Ross is awesome. Just keep up to date on problem sheet and tutorial questions then you will be fine.

Fairly doable subject if you've done Vector Calculus and Accelerated Maths. Fairly difficult otherwise because there are multiple integrals and Taylor series involved. However, it is a very interesting introduction to probability that provides a solid working foundation for other probability subjects. Would suggest keeping up to date on tutorial questions. Nathan Ross is a funny guy but he loves his proofs; be wary of that if you don't.

Fairly difficult subject. Make sure you keep up to date as everything builds on previous work. Also, learn the proofs if you want high marks!

The content in this subject is hard! There seems to be a lot of assumed knowledge from other second year subjects especially Real Analysis and Vector Calculus which certainly wouldn't help if you haven't done those yet! The lectures were interesting, but not great, and were quite confusing at times. The tutorial lab components, while also interesting, were not particularly useful, and also the classroom tutorials were less useful than in other maths subjects. Be warned! The assignments were VERY hard, and the exam was too! At least the marking was quite generous.

Awesome! Peter Taylor is my best lecturer so far in nearly 3 years at uni! Great subject!
