       Help                       Your tutors are committed to helping you get the most out of
                                  your study. The Lectures and Practical sessions will provide
                                  students with all the skills and background knowledge required
                                  to complete the assignments, however students must apply this
                                  knowledge in order to gain full understanding. Students should
                                  spend roughly 2 to 4 hours of their own time each week
                                  working on the assignments. It is expected that students will
                                  attempt all assignments independently before asking a tutor for
                                  help.

                                  Notes and Assignments can generally be found on Jeff’s Web

       Text Book                  There is no one text book that meets the specific needs of this
                                  subject. Throughout the semester your tutor may provide you
                                  with notes or links to web sites that can help you. If you want a
                                  good introductory book for Visual Basic for applications I

                   Assessment information

                   This unit is ungraded, so the only ’pass’ grade you will receive is CU (Competent,
                   ungraded). To get a CU you need to successfully complete ALL assignments. If you
                   receive an NC grade you are deemed Not-yet-competent. If you start this unit and stop
                   attending at some stage before the end, or you fail to complete all the assessment in this
                   unit, you will receive an IP (Insufficient participation) grade.



                   Assessment Presentation:

                   Presentations of assignments must be made on or before the due dates, unless
                   extenuating circumstances apply.

                   Students must be able to explain any aspect of the presented assignments to the tutor.

                   Results are closed at the end of week 17 (24 November)
