Even the title scares me...

Quanatitititantiaittitititititiv e Techniques.
It's just a flowery word for numbers, akin to Qualitative for words.

Although it's often synonymous with statistics.







It aint gonna be asking us to find the mean, mode median and all that jazz is it? lol

So it's really just Number Techniques then? That sounds a lot less scary.

Well I'm no expert, as I'm in the same boat as you but I know that Quantitative is just a lofty way of saying numbers.

http://www.answers.com/quantitative


I'm sure it will be demanding but can't be impossible.

In sociology for example we've studied the advantages and disadvantages of Quantitative and Qualitative data, and even done a piece of research on the thing. Not to mention I retook GCSE maths in year 12 and got an A from a C, so I might have slightly less ring rust than you!

In business studies in A2 particularly we've touched upon things such as market research and the only key words I can remember are things such as; Correlation, Anomaly, moving averages (3/4 points) Break even charts, decision trees. There's undoubtedly a few more I've missed.

I wouldn't worry about it anyway, we're all practically in the same position and I probably have misplaced confidence anyway!

You can also find that maths test on Blackboard. The link for that should be on MAP. Didn't you receive an e-mail with the reading list at the end of July/beginning of August already?!

That's not the final reading list and we were advised not to buy any books until our first few lectures so we know what ones to get or not.

Basically yes. QT is mostly GCSE level maths, very easy, and BDA in the second term is probably more A-Level standard, and more statistics. But it's taught very well, the exams are open book and in the same format every year (so you can basically take last years exam paper and answers in and just adjust the figures for your paper).
