Evil HSC

WzDD's HSC Info Page

Having finished the 1997 HSC, I was unwilling to sacrifice my pages of copious notes to the eternal flames - at least, without storing them somewhere first. Hence this page. That's basically all there is to it.

Please read this before you start using my notes: As some may have noticed already (you bright young people, you), these are my notes. That means that they are taken in my style, to jog my memory, and focusing on the things about which I needed to take notes. You may or may not be the same. To spell it out: this means that these pages are no substitute for detailed in-class study and notes of your own. I hope they can help you, but you should not rely on them.

Studying for the HSC is boring and tedious. If you'd like to help make it less so, please feel tempted to type up some of your notes (any popular format should be fine) and send them to the maintainer of this site, wzdd@lardcave.net.

Update: May, 2000: This page has moved to lardcave.net, and it will now stay here. I still have all my HSC notes; hopefully I can resume transcribing them.

Update: September, 2001: Yeah, like that happened. :-)
