Hi All,

Listen...I have reserved a place on the OU course (Economics and
Changing Economies: D216) to commence Feb 2002. Today is the 10 of
January 2002 and I am still a bit worried about doing this course
because I am afraid that I may not be able to cope, giving that I will
be working full time as well, and that this is my first time studying
with the OU. I have some academic experience (i.e. a degree) but to
study entirely by yourself is something that I have not really done
before. In fact, I went to the OU open day at King's College today for
an introductory course but I am still worried about the time commitment.

Basically it boils down to this. I would like some advice and words of
wisdom from people who have done this course last year or the year
before that. Mainly, I would like to know from previous students of
this course:

1) How difficult was the course?
2) The OU recommends 16 hours of study per week. What was the
realistic time you were putting in a week and how did you organise
your study time?
3) What is the mathematical content of this course like?
4) Did the course over-ran your life?

Any other advice regarding this course is most welcome and fast, as I
have until the 14th of January to pay my fees.

Regards all,

Shay

Not done this one or any other D prefixed courses, but I would think the
mathematical content should be fairly easy to digest, given that the OU
draws students from a wide range of backgrounds and keeps prerequisites
to a mimimum if possible. Judging from the title of this course I'd
guess you could save a lot of time if your good at speed reading and
essay writing
