Overall Comment:

The content isn’t too bad if you go to the lectures/tutorials/PASS classes, but you do need to at least go through lectures to understand the concepts and how to use them. The lecturer mostly reads off the slides, and doesn’t really explain the reasons behind her using the numbers she does in lectures, which was especially frustrating when she went through the sample final exam.

If you don’t do well for your midsems, best to buckle up and attend tutorials/PASS classes, because those were a big help and are worth more than going to lectures alone
