Overall Comment:
I did this course as an elective in second year of semester one. Although there was significantly more content than I first expected, there is nothing conceptually challenging about anything in this course.

If you hate assignments and love exams then I would definitely recommend this course to you. 70% of the course assessment is exams which are largely multi-choice and are not difficult provided you are capable of learning a bit of content. Another 20% of assessment is online quizzes and there are literally no assignments.

All the content can be learned easily of just the lecture slides although it is compulsory to attend a two hour tutorial every week. If you have an interest in basic nutrition and are looking for a decent elective I’d recommend this course.
