Module Feedback:

Another challenging and interesting module, and again a difficult year-end exam. I learned some valuable skills on this part of the HND that I hope to take with me beyond the HND. This was a difficult module in that every topic was a new concept, however, in achieving an aggregate 79% (Distinction) I'm confident in saying I mastered the 'RAD' Development Life-cycle.
