Sadly this is a required class for most BDes majors but unless you are planning to do some form of architecture degree, I would advise to avoid if you can. The workload is enormous, I have probably spent twice as much time on this unit than any of my other three units this semester. If you have to take this, plan accordingly to pair it with lighter subjects. The time estimates given for each task are woefully inaccurate, particularly if you want to do better than just passing. The theory is unnecessarily verbose and technical for first year. As a mature age student who has worked in design, I can confidently say this unit is not useful to graphic designers. This unit will require you to use Photoshop, Illustrator and Rhino 6 - you will have an edge if you know how to use this software before starting. (disclaimer - I am not writing this from a place of bitterness, my marks have been solid for this unit but I truly believe it is hard for no real reason. Half of my tutorial class dropped this unit by mid semester)
