So was it because it was too easy so no one bother posting here anymore or was it because everyone failed so hard and none has the spirit to keep posting? I have my quiz tomorrow and I have no idea how I can remember all these shit. The concept itself is fine but there's just too many of them.

Same time, but only because I'm doing it as a make-up quiz as I was sick on wed. Anyway I, literally, can not fill more of these equations into my head. Unlike math and physics, these equations DOESN"T MAKE ANY SENSE!!

He's a bit of a troll though. In our first class quiz, when we had 10 minutes left, he was like "20 SECONDS LEFT". Good tutor nevertheless. I've seen him flirting around tonnes of chicks; he was even flirting with those I knew of....

Anyhow, apparently the person who was doing the make up quiz sesh who had to present his ID card sat on my table. I was the one with the blue UNSW jacket and the laptop.

As for the FINS1613 quiz today, it wasn't that hard, but it wasn't that easy either. Guess I'd prefer quizzes to stay at this level...

the majority failed apparently
Good. At least I'm not the odd one out. I failed too. The first FINS1613 quiz, if I had the paper back, I'd stab it, rip it, and throw it to the dogs.

Oh, you have her tutorial? I do too! She's a really good tutor.

I thought this time's FINS1613 quiz was good. I'd also prefer it if quizzes stayed at this level. Not too hard, not too easy. (Or wait. Too easy is good, wonderful, fantastic...)

I reckon they made this weeks quiz easier to compensate for the majority of people failing the last one. If you think about it they only tested the basics- irr,npvs and cash flows. None of the harder things like mirr, different timings etc.

Eh, I don't care what their reasons were. They made it easier for us, and that's all that matters to me. I hope they'll keep on making the quizzes this easy.

MIRR is hard? Probably for some newb accountant. It's just an annualised holding period return.
