Hey can anyone give me a review on some of these courses? I am in my last year for the BAS Finance, and the amount of anxiety and stress come exam time is killing me. Hopefully someone out there will read this and will have some advice.

Winter:
ADMS 4542 (International Financial Management): It is really hard to find any info on this course. So far it seems difficult, and my prof spends a lot of time talking about himself rather than teaching the materials. Can anyone give me some advice with this specific course in terms of the exams?
ADMS 3531 (Personal Investment Management)
ADMS 4507 (Insurance & Other Topics)
ADMS 3210 (Consumer Behaviour)

Fall:
ADMS 4501 (Advanced Portfolio Management)
ADMS 4502 (Ethics for Investment Managers)
ADMS 3440 (Leadership & Management Skills)
..I need a SOSC or MODR, was thinking of MODR 1760, I also need 1 more random bird ADMS course.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

4542 is tough from what I've heard but you'll learn a lot
3531 is an easy A
3210 seems easy (I have it right now)
4501 is an easier A than 3531 (Once you do 3531, 4501 will be even easier)
I took MODR 1760 and got a B+ without trying

Hi,

Has anyone taken AP/HUMA 1400.9 Culture and Society in East Asia before?
If anyone has taken it before, can you tell me:

There are too much requirements for reading...Will they on exams or assignments?
What will be on the exams and assignments?

Thank you

Does the Economics program at York University involve a high difficulty of mathematics? As a international student, I took some basic economics courses (micro and macroeconomics) at Seneca college and really enjoyed them. In addition, I was really successful within them.

However, I struggled immensely in Grade 12 Advanced Functions and just passed. Trigonometry identities were really difficult for me. I NEVER took calculus in Grade 12 although it is a recommended course. Can anyone who graduated within the program or is enrolled tell me the difficultly of mathematics. I would hate to be stuck in a difficult situation due to not understanding the concepts.

If possible, can anyone post some pictures of what I can expect?

Hey! York people really need to get on the Dropbox Campus Cup thing. Currently anyone with a york email address can join and you get a bonus of up to 25GB on your dropbox account for 2 years.
Even if you don't use your york email address as your dropbox account email address you don't need to set up a separate account, it'll just link it. Currently there's only a 3GB bonus but if more people sign up we can get up to 25GB! I want more free gigs!

You can sign up here
(note this is a referral link but I get absolutely nothing extra for the referral I just see how many people join because of me, if you want to use a non-referral link use this one!

Dropbox has these kinds of promotions every few years, last time it was called the "space race" so hopefully in 2 years they'll have another one again. I think they want to keep getting successive waves of university students hooked.
