    2008 Presidential Election - Obama v McCain

    Go the Democrats! I support Obama for president and Joe Biden for Vice-President rather than the conservatives. The Republican party thought that they would get away with a beauty queen to woo voters but failed. I hear of lots of undecided voters jumping to Obama fearing her. McCain-Palin have...

    "a higher uai suggests greater chance of succeeding at uni."

    Within a unit of study or a degree, I think that there is somerelationship between UAIs and uni grades. The coursework in uni can sometimes be much different to that in high school. eg two uni students doing i.t at uni. One with a uai of 95, but did sciences and history and the other with a...

    wats the best HSC books excel, macquarie, leading edge or any other

    I recommend Excel 'Revise in a month' for science subjects. Good for cramming and getting hold of the basics before moving onto harder exam questions. For good pre-exam practice, choose 'Success One'. I really liked Macquarie for all subjects- they were neat, concise and understandable and...

    Factors that strengthen/weaken the International Business Cycle
