Student reviews

A really useful little module - gives you tasters in networking, Linux and (perhaps the least useful) robotics which is a simulated robot that you must program to perform tasks (very basic stuff mind you). The networking and Linux aspects are very useful and cover a fair amount of stuff given they are each only a third of the 30 credit course. It would, however, have been nice to see an exam for this module, as learning only takes place when stuff is revised. As it was I feel most of the content was forgotten, even if my notes might be a good building block for later on.
