What a module!
From start to finish this module was the most enjoyable I had studied through my whole Open University experience!

The supplied module notes were excellent and really complemented the set book. The tutorials and tutors were fabulous, lots of handy tips were provided. Both tutor-marked assignments and final exam were very fair with a few testing parts as you would expect.

Overall Coding Theory was a joy to study and I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Very accessible course. The beginning parts are perhaps the most taxing, and the middle two quarters of the course are, perhaps, a little samey. The last part of the course I found the most interesting.

Overall, not terribly difficult, but there is a lot of donkey work involved: you can't get around that, the techniques need to be learned for any kind of success in the final examination.
