I have found this Unit quite easy because it's using information that you already know. It's easy to find sources on the internet to.

i also found this quite easy to do because it has simple steps to it and it has the right sources that you can use which makes it a lot easier<math>Insert formula here</math>

I have found this unit in my ICT course rather easy as I was already familiar with the skills needed and required to complete the unit. I also found that using the Wiki website was reletively easy as the steps I had to follow to complete specific tasks were clear and simple. --Jatinder (Singh) 15:05, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
