Student notes from MTL 200

Write down word for word profs lecture notes. Best way to ace the midterm/exam is to practice profs notes. Easy course for the most part- focus your attention on reading textbook material if you cannot understand the professor. Textbook has great diagrams and most the slides heavily reference the text/ definitions found throughout the textbook.
