Thanks alot. I got it right in Nigeria with your lecture

wwswidusha says

nice lecture

RAJAN says

heyy sir, what does “r=0″ mean

John Moffat says

It is meaningless because it is impossible.

(Just think, how on earth could the average time per unit be zero – unless the time for the first unit (and all subsequent units) was zero!!)

zahreddine says

Thank you sir, this lectures allowed to understand the logic behind the learning curve formula.

kgomotso basiami says

thank u sir this is a wonderful lecture now i do understand the topic on learning curves. God bless u!!

Rakesh says

Hi all,

Could anyone let me know how to use Casio scintific calculator for learning curve formula..say

Y=aX^b = 10*5^-0.152

Your comments will be appreciated.

Thanks

Harris says

Thank you so much. I had problems understanding this before, but now is so clear.

Regards

John Moffat says

Great

marcie157 says

Thanks for scientific calculators!!!

yanisha says

great lecture sir. Can you pls advise if we should emphasise only on theory part for Regression Analysis & Time Series or should we also concentrate on calculatios equally.

thanks

John Moffat says

As is made very clear in the introduction paragraph to the Course Notes, you will not be asked for calculations on regression or on time series. (The calculations are examined in Paper F2)

You are only expected to know the principles. I have only left the calculations in the notes (and lectures) to hopefully make the idea more clear.

yanisha says

Thanks Sir

yanisha says

great lecture sir. Can you ls advise if we should emhasi only o theory art for Regression Analysis & Time Series or should we also cocetryae o calculatios wqually.

thaks

printhan says

Great .thanks a lot

acca2050 says

Dear Sir,

I read in the syllabus for Dec 2013, that the only topic left in the syllabus is learning curve and high-low method in quantitative budgeting…is it?

Many Thanks

John Moffat says

Time series and regression analysis are assumed knowledge from Paper F2. The examiner has said that there will not be detailed calculations on either, but you are expected to be aware of both.

(If you look at the course notes, it actually says this in bold letters. We update our notes every six months and everything in our notes is relevant for the December 2013 exams)

saadsula says

cant watch any lecture today is there any problem.

opentuition_team says

Lectures work fine, please check support page

Abdulkarim says

Someone told me that Time Series is no longer on the syllabus of 2013. Is that true?

John Moffat says

Time series are unlikely to be asked, but they are assumed knowledge from Paper F2. You will certainly not be asked for calculations, but you can be expected to know what time series are.

loopheichuen says

For June 2013 exam, Regression Analysis is not in the syllabus anymore right?

John Moffat says

It is still examinable as assumed knowledge from Paper F2. However you will not be asked for any calculations in Paper F5.

loopheichuen says

Meaning, I just need to know the theoretical part?

John Moffat says

Yes. To be honest, it is not very likely that anything will be asked now. The sort of thing she could expect is for you to be able to mention that regression analysis wold be one technique you could use for forecasting.

loopheichuen says

thank you!!

Rockstar says

Great lecture thanks very much…

irum says

each n every part of topic ,very well explained

Dthind says

Very well explained!!

safwandeshmukh says

Urgent help plzzz tomorrow i have my F5 paper …

In learning curve the formula method how do find values of the logs ??

will i be given log table ??? or should i carry my own ?? or am i allowed to use scientific calculator ?

John Moffat says

@safwandeshmukh, You are not given log tables and you cannot take your own. But you are allowed to use a scientific calculator.

However, almost certainly you will be given the value of b if learning curves are asked.

(but you will still need a scientific calculator to calculate y = ax^b )

sunlee says

Really good lecture!

After this lecture, failing is optional

THANKS!!

manthan5 says

Excellent lecture. Thank you.

edwin2012 says

I like you John! Good lecture!

shelly1568 says

I am working Question 3 on Past Paper Dec 2008. When I calculate the time it takes to fit 199 kitchens using the method provided by OpenTuition, I am arriving at a different answer from the examiner. Could anyone shed some light on this?

nikerahulp says

very helpful lecture….

really best things in life are for free…….

mansikhusi says

Hello

I can not see any lecture on regression analysis on F2 lectures! Can anyone tell me please where do I find it?

Thanks.

kam2189 says

@mansikhusi, Chapter 17 has Regression Analysis

Evgenia says

@kam2189, and in which particular part? there are 4 lectures for Chapter 17 F2?

manojk says

Thanks Open Tuition.Great lecture.

jinjah100 says

understood! great lecture

lydnyaboke2010 says

very useful lecture

kiki0615 says

great ! n useful !!!!

evangeline2000 says

Great.THANK YOU Very much!!

perfecta1 says

Can anyone tell me where I can find a video lecturer for regression analysis? In what chapter of F2 video lectures is it exactly?

Evgenia says

@perfecta1, Same story.. can’t find it there! could be nice if anyone can advice… thanks in advance

s1234 says

Awesome lecture….the only problem i’m facing is once the lecture is almost in it’s last part, it gets back to the beginning!!!

Reached the part where the lecturer was teaching how to calcuate “LOG R” and then the video gets back to beginning….What’s that suppose to be???Any idea!!!

wait for the lecture to fully load, then press play..
