missed by 50 cents sucks..but trust me, i missed before by 3 cents before..thats even worse..

over the min bid by 3 bucks is not considered as overbid to me....unless the 3 bucks is very close to the highest bids
haha. i was like 6 bucks away from max bid, still considered high for me >.>

need to save up for future finance mods, my snrs say very very expp

3 bucks from min bid and 6 bucks from max bid, to me thats consider decent, and not overbid....thats because differential between lowest and bighest bid is 9 dollars, 50th percentile price differential is 4.50. You are well below that

You definitely will want to bid 3 bucks more than the min bid rather than lose out by 50 cents because u refuse to pay abit more. I have advice friends alot of times le, either u pay 3-4 bucks more for peace of mind, or risk not getting it and end up paying 10 bucks more at the next bidding window because u die die need that timeslot and prof because it will screw up ur timetable planning....

not exactly.....

there are only afew finance mods exp, finance101 and maybe wealth mgmt.

otherwise, most finance mods can be gotten at 10-15 edollars only...and while u r given 20 edollars per mod, its definitely more than enuff.

unless u arent business student, but want to take finance as 2nd major....else most other finance mods are cheap..the only expensive mods are mods which most students have to take..

haha, trust me on that i have seen the system from yr1 and this will be my last sem liao...lao jiao with bidding le

Do you have background in programming? If yes, maybe take 1 or half a mod. If not, I suggest you keep your 20 bucks for next semester.

LTB majority is fluff...CSP is not too difficult, but it's how u convinced to your prof that your CSP is not a one off event to help whichever beneficiary tt you might have chosen....

sustainability of CSP is quite crucial ....

Assuming you bid something for 15 bucks, wIndow ends and you get It. Then now 0 vacancies. So no one will come bid for the slot right. So you wait until last hour and you go drop then you bid in again for next window at 10 bucks. You save money. Is this possible???

It's called sniping and there are people who snipe the snipers

it's still a risk. That is because this technique is the most common technique being employed. You are not the first few who taught of this, and you won't be the last either...

Not that it won't succeed, I just want to highlight to you that, it is still possbile to enter a bid for the course even though it has no more vacancies. So yes, if people does put a bid at 15 edollars at 0 vacancies, while u try to drop and rebid at 10 edollars, u will end up losing ur place at a result.

And another point to make, there are people sniping during the last 5 minutes before window closes and snipe away people who do that. This technique is also very very common. I do that as well.

Hence, please do it at your own risk.

Does sniping means after successfully bidded for a mod then you drop it at last minute to attempt to rebid at a lower price? with the risk of someone else rebidding higher than u to take the slot

LTB was very slack for me but I think the syllabus changed, I'm not very sure about this. Ask other seniors for more info. CT and AS are also very slack for me, I took them at year 1 but different terms.

But then again, I'm slack because I gave a heck care attitude and thus my results are horrible. If you don't care much about results, can try 5 CUs if you want. If you want to aim good results, I think better stick with 4 first especially if you just ORDed and too used to the relax life-style.
