some help please with QMS102

i'm thinking about taking this course because it is a pre-req for me on a few courses I'm thinking about.

I was wondering if someone could help me with the difficultly of this course for someone with little to no math skill or background. Grade 9 or 10 math would be overstating my competency level lol. So what do you guys think, will this course be too hard for me or can I figure things out sufficiently?

thanks

How did you get into university if you didn't do well in math....?

Basically you're paying $600 to learn how to use the calculator. LEARN IT WELL. I screwed up with my TI-83 and GG gotta retake.

Edit: Has anyone taken CRM 601 in the past? I have to write a research paper for it and I failed the research proposal a while back... I saw my professor on Tuesday and she said it was too vague and didn't contain a research question that will allow me to think critically. I was pretty confused as to what she wants because I honestly thought research papers were similar to that of an essay, based on what I found online. I'm trying to figure this out, and how I'm going to study for my final exams and so far, it's not going very well.. Especially considering that my final exam schedule is pretty bad as you guys may have read, and that my notes for the first half of the course were pretty bad.

Hey guys,

For LAW122 I ended up with an 80% on the first midterm, and then I got a 25% on the next one *face palm*. Each are worth 30 percent... Would you recommend I drop it, or keep it?

Finance majors in 3rd year of study (I am in my second, btw).. just curious as to which courses you chose to take from the choices of:

FIN 510 Entrepreneurial Finance
FIN 512 Risk Management and Insurance
FIN 521 Advanced Portfolio Management
FIN 601 Derivatives
FIN 610 Short-Term Financial Management
FIN 611 Fixed Income Securities
FIN 612 Retirement and Estate Planning
FIN 621 International Finance
FIN 631 Financial Modelling I

I think I'll be taking FIN 601, 512, 521 and 631 maybe.. I don't know yet. I kinda wanted to do 610 also but it says only 4 of the choices so not really sure what would be best. So what did you guys choose?

if you want to keep the option of CFP open then you need FIN512 and 612 for sure. FIN631 is basically doing FIN300 on excel.

And choose the right ones... For some reason all the "easy ones" turn hard on me.. SOC 203, FRE 101, CRM 601, GEO 509... Ya all weren't good.

ACC801 is the same content from last year with 2 midterms and a final. All MC and problems, but apparently longer and harder. LAW603 is a continuation of 122 and content isn't overly difficult. I had a friend who took FIN611 for her finance minor before and it wasn't a joke.

Can anyone here who have ACC821 auditing class with Ken Caplan this morning, can you please let me know and PM me the final exam review topics he showed in class today? I couldn't come to class today but apparently he took up the final exam review already and I was surprised cuz its way early than he scheduled in his course outline. I would really appreciate it if you can PM me this info and I will return the favor somehow. Thanks in advance.

Also to anyone finished 821 class with Ken Caplan, how was his final exams? Is it still going to be based on CICA handbook again?
