In This Course:

– The lecturer does not just read off the slides.
BUT:

– The textbook is actually necessary.
-This course HAS a final.

Overall Comment:

PASS classes are compulsory, as are online quizzes, but both of these aren’t particularly helpful. The pracs are pretty basic, and most of the time don’t take the full 3 hours. I had a good prac instructor, and so I got most of my information from him. The course content is very broad but not particularly deep – although the textbook and lectures have very varying depths, and communication as to what knowledge is actually expected is essentially non-existent.
