This is my first semester as a EE undergrad and I'm having difficulty with my telecom class. These are my current classes: Physics Calculus Intro to C Programming Electronics and telecommunications. Everything else is fine. For telecom, I don't know why they are making us do it in the first sem. As far as I can see, we need some prerequisites in order to understand the subject. The pace is fast and unlike my other subjects, the lecturer jumps from topic to topic. I tried to read some books, but the material is about 200 pages for the two or three lectures he covered. In our lab, we have to work with a circuit simulation software and build some circuits as projects. I have never done electronics, so do understand what am I doing. Isn't electricity and magnetism / electronics supposed to come before this? Problem is that I don't have a clue where to start. I'm already behind and need some help getting started. Btw this is an Australian university in Malaysia.
