Reviews and tips for ECON1102

Badly structured course. I found tutorials essentially pointless and a lot of content had to be self taught. Extremely more maths based than ECON1101. If maths isn't your strong point or interest, i would reconsider taking the subject.

macro is alot worse than micro 1. Alot more maths and equations, and more content. The tutorial worksheets were also not very good at helping revise the content, and the tutors barely ever explain/go over concepts. They just give you the worksheet each week and make you do them. Micro 1 had a assignment system that was far better in terms of learning concepts. Overall not very good.

Personally, I really did not enjoy this subject. My first economics subject I took was Microeconomic 1 and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I also found the lectures and tutorials were really dry and boring.

unlike micro, macro is extremely mathematics based - which i was surprise and confronted with. I am not from a maths background so i found remembering the formulas very difficult.

Unfortunately this course is nothing like Microeconomics. Both the weekly homework and the exams were filled with content that could not be found in the lecture notes or textbook. Not sure where we're supposed to get the answers from or how we're supposed to study. The lecturers and tutors give you virtually no assistance throughout the course. They are slow to mark our homework and assignments and provide us with no feedback. One week until the test and I'm still waiting for the mark on two homework tasks and an assignment. The chartbook assignment instructions were filled with mistakes that were constantly being corrected, so doing the assignment earlier actually put you at a disadvantage because you were working with incorrect instructions. If they're trying to dissuade students from taking up an economics major, they've done a good job.
