Thanks for quick responses. :) And is it because it's hard or is it just plain boring?

Just plain boring. It wasn't overly difficult, much the same as 1/2 imo

Plain boring, a huge chunk of the interesting stuff was taken out of the Electronics and Photonics area of study with the new study design in 2009.

Thank you for your help! :)

and sorry another questions; I'm just organizing my folder next year. Would you say motion has the most chapters in the textbook so the most work?

and did any of you guys do 'Structures and Materials?' Is it any good?

Motion has 3 chapters (heinemann) and electronics has 2, I think. So yeah, more questions.

Structures and materials actually makes electronics interesting at times. Fortunately, it's actually kinda straightforward, so it's a nice detailed study to do :)

Ahh okay thank you. :) I'm more of a maths student so which for the three detailed study do you think I would enjoy more?

Relativity is the most mathsy imo, but it also the hardest to grasp (its quite weird in its way)

S&M is the easiet, and the maths involved is pretty basic (basic trig, etc.)

Further elctronics (thats unit 3 right?) is apparently very hard, and if you don't like electronics, even worse. Not sure on the maths with this one though


edit: just realised I haven't replied to your PM yet, will do later this week, sorry about that

Thanks Rohitpi, I'll stick with Structures and Materials then. :)

I wouldn't say further electronics is hard, it was just down-right annoying. And over the three exams worth of the current physics study design exams, there have always been one or twice questions on each exam that our textbook had no way of covering (keep in mind at this stage I was still stuck using Jacaranda, the other texbooks hopefully covered it). Although I did fluke the answer and guessed it right on the exam.

So in short, further electronics isn't hard, its just drives you crazy, don't do it. Plus realtivity looked fun, wish we did it.

I should point out the first link in the opening post is broken.  :)

Up to two pages (one A4 sheet) of pre-written notes. These notes may be typed or handwritten. They may be from any source. Commercially available materials are acceptable.
By that do they mean a double-sided A4 sheet?

Thanks :) I'll try and find the new link :)
I think the same information is on pages 77 to 88 of the study design.

Alex Hua is awesome, I recommend anyone who is doing Physics to see him next year if they need help with some concepts. ;)
I've finished VCE and therefore you can't see me here anymore.
