I'll probably go because I'll be at campus anyway, but dear gods is it dry at the moment.

Yeah, I wasn't going to go to any more 1002 lectures.

Tutorials for FIT1029 aren't compulsory - I was told today by my tutor. However, I would recommend going. It doesn't look like it will be a very straight-forward subject.
Are you in the morning or afternoon tute? I'm in the afternoon one and was just so CBF today.

I was hoping it would pick up today, from the terrible one on Monday but it sucked. The way David rambles on, I doubt anyone who hasn't already done programming before would understand what he's on about.

I think I'll just skip the lectures from on now. Is the dates of the inlecture tests in the unit guide? I'd hate for them to be random.

Also, anyone in tomorrow's 11am tute for FIT1029?

A question:

If I wanted to drop Computer Science and just do straight Science from second semester onwards, would it be a problem dropping FIT1002 (before March 31) and doing CHM1011 instead? I figured programming really isn't my thing...

I would drop everything except for Maths and Stats if you're going to transfer out.
vce: english, methods, spesh, chemistry, physics, geography.

tutoring in any vce maths.

Whoops, bad expression on my part! I'm doing Science/Computer Scienceónot single CS as I was implying.

Anyway, the units I'm doing are:

BIO1011: Biology I
MTH1020: Analysis of Change
FIT1029: Algorithmic problem solving
FIT1002: Computer programming

I can drop a unit, but will that affect my chances at transferring? Three units might not be enough for an average to be calculated...

Also, if I try to add a unit like CHM1011 or PHS1011, will it be rejected due to the constraints of my current course?
I always look a little lost.

Btw do we get usage limits at Monash? I was trying to diehards one ebook from the library or something and it said something about going towards my usage so then I cancelled
It turned my computer off and went home U

Im not sure about you, but im living on campus and there's been no limits to their 10mb/s internet connection so far :P

If you're basing that on the lectures, I find David to be terrible at explaining things. Theres a lot of resources on programming online that explains things 100 times better.

As someone who's done a fair amount of programming in the past, I think programming is kinda like learning a new language and going into an area which is completely new. At first, you'll find it hard and challenging because it doesn't make sense, but once you start to understand code (read code other people wrote and understand what it does), you'll find that it becomes much more enjoyable and you'll find that you'll start picking up more and learning far more quickly.

I'd suggest just pulling through with it for the semester and seeing if you like it :)

Probably. Maybe it'll get a bit better as I adjust to uni...but even so, I prefer Chemistry. What was I thinking; I should've picked single Science from the start :\

Also, I'm planning on transferring to Biotechnology after first year (can't do that mid-year). Which units should I pick up or drop, and how much catching up will I have to do if I'm successful in transferring?

My Semester 2 units are...

FIT1008: Introduction to computer science
FIT1004: Data management
MTH1030: Techniques for modelling
BIO1022: Biology II

Not entirely true, it depends on the programming language. Java sucks, and that's what we're learning.
