I now have a profound admiration for #MB1005 / #BS1005 lecturer Professor Ketley after a humorous reply to a request to have his lecture slide formatting changed so I can print out 6 slides per page. Great guy!
I am glad to see the sort of structure the #BS1015 exam will be taking and I am pleasantly surprised to hear of extra marks available for putting in that little bit of extra knowledge in questions. Hopefully next time revision will help me get a good mark.
My experience with Excel was not great today regarding #BS1015 practical calculations. I converted the file to the newest version of Excel, and I think that ruined my plots. It seems if you aren't having luck with the plotting, just reopen the file from blackboard and copy in your data, and it miraculously works. Not entirely sure why, but hey.

I think I need to refine my technique so writing the next essay (whatever it is) doesn't take too long. I did find, however, that keeping a numbered reference list going (cont)
Pleased with my mark in #CH1070. I found the lecture today was also really helpful with clearing up some crossed mental wires. I'm also very glad I went through the online practises as they offered some useful answers and (sometimes) helpful feedback.

I'm finding the notes on blackboard under each lecture (of #BS1015 at least) are a great way of going over the notes you made to check that you took everything down, as some of what is getting said is there but not on the slides. There are also some nice questions for extending knowledge.
I was quite disappointed with my feedback session given I was essentially told 'this was more to test how well you could write' and the number of marks I lost seemed disproportionate to the things I was told I did wrong.
