These are the things you NEED TO KNOW about Operations for the HSC Business Studies exam. The 30 videos included here are completely focused on improving your RESULTS.
This is NOT JUST SOME CHEAP FLASHCARD APP – everything is ACTUALLY EXPLAINED to you. The app focuses directly on the exam and how to maximise your marks in the limited time available.
Some of the FEATURES of the Operations Cram App include:
HOURS OF VIDEOS: Each part of the topic is explained in a VISUAL LECTURE (check out the screenshots). Every video has been carefully constructed to help you study effectively. This is the SHORT VERSION of the topic, but it’s NOT OVER-SIMPLIFIED.
GUIDE TO ESSAYS AND USING CASE STUDIES: There are comprehensive videos that walk you step-by-step through the process of writing extended responses and how to use case studies properly.
THE SYLLABUS IS MADE SO MUCH CLEARER: The app uses a visual, colour-coded syllabus to guide you through each of the dot-points and to help you memorise the subheadings. Don’t be mistaken – memorising the syllabus is a key part of succeeding in the Business Studies exam and it has never been made easier than this.
EVERYTHING IS SELF-CONTAINED: All the videos and guides are contained in the app itself – there are no links to external videos or sites, so you can study wherever you want without being worried about not having an internet connection.
BUT IT’S NOT YOUR TEXTBOOK: Even though the app covers the main dot-points of the syllabus, it DOES NOT cover case studies or current business issues. For that, you need a good textbook (the Creative Business Studies one is the best – it’s so underrated and underused).
