FAQ on MBA

Posted by: pat @ 11:03 am

I was given an opportunity to research on MBA 101. I don’t claim to be an expert in this area but would like to share with everyone what I know. Louis has suggested a FAQ format for this. Nothing is in stone, please feel free to provide suggestions.

This is my first time attempting to post such article online. Please pardon me if the structure is web-messy. 🙂

School is out

Posted by: Louis @ 9:20 pm

Yesterday, had our first official outing. Since school was out, we took time out to practice some ‘healthy lifestyle’ and spent an afternoon rollerblading at East Coast. Present were: Jack, Dafei, myself, Angie and her hubbie, Mei Mei and Kamesha. Well, actually, William was there too but had to go ‘swimming’ after lunch! :rolleyes:

Weather-wise, we had the works: from bright sunny day, to late afternoon downpour. Luckily it cleared up soon enough so that we could have a second session. However, that also meant that after the rain many people would head out at the same time, and a serious traffic jam near the McDonald’s area. read more

Going, going, gone!

Posted by: Louis @ 10:00 pm

Today was the day of reckoning: now or never, time to face the music and all that. But it is over now, and let normal life recommence!

By the way, hope that no one else is not flipping through the texts, trying to find out all the things that he/she failed to recall during the exam right now! Just kidding.

Last minute

Posted by: Louis @ 1:20 pm

Another stinking hot day in Singapore.

Another _study_ day for me. Thankfully, not much longer to go. But then, back to the _normal_ working life after that…

Sitting back

Posted by: Louis @ 5:05 pm

Now going through some past exam papers – well, really more of a checking the solutions to the questions to see if my thinking is consistent with the right approach. – while my _comrades_ are still at the library also putting in their last-minute efforts. This is the time for consolidation, rather than trying to squeeze in more concepts.

Getting close

Posted by: Louis @ 10:13 pm

Slower progress today.

Went through multiple choice questions from 2 past exam papers, under semi-exam conditions, and then had some discussions on problems after that. So, probably had some 5 hours solid preparation there. Otherwise, spent some summarising the financial ratios and reading some problems/answers from the Revision Kit. Harder to focus because already overloaded, I reckon?

Attrition

Posted by: Louis @ 10:18 pm

Fourth day into our intensive _boot camp_ for the Module A exam.

Fatigue is obvious on all of our (Jack, Joshua, Patricia and myself) faces. I guess, this is just another case of being overloaded? There just always seems to be more things to revise. Right now, we are already like saturated sponges, and struggling to absorb any additional input. It may be a blessing in disguise that there are only 3 whole days to go!?

Study and VA

Posted by: Louis @ 11:21 pm

For the past few days, have been busily cramming for the ACCA module A exam. Incidentally, the exam is on coming Monday June 2. There seems to be just an endless amount of materials to go through….

Since Monday, I have been in the library from about 10am in the morning, and staying there till the library closes at 9pm. Well, actually the brain usually switches off at around 8.30pm. However, this experience has been made considerably more pleasant because I have a good study group!

Manifesto

Posted by: Louis @ 11:16 pm

What you see here was inspired by a comment made during today’s discussion session. Essentially this is a website set up to document of some of the trials, struggles and stresses both myself and my class mates go through during this year-long ACCA Diploma for Financial Management!
