    Just about to submit my last assignment IP!

    Think that was just about the hardest one for me, this forum has helped heaps, but as with every assignment I have submitted I am not completely happy with everything I have done.

    But as I have a job riding on me passing unit 4 by 29th October I just have to submit it at see where we go.

    Good luck to all you guys still going, if anyone needs any pointers on the other 3 let me know, don't know I'd be pointing you in the right direction until I have IP marked so no questions on that one.

    Fingers crossed x

    Thats great news, have you had any word back yet??
    Im still having some dramas with the Super assignment
    Its not so much that I don't have an understanding of the concepts, I am now resubmitting question 6 and feel like there are so many things to cover I need some guidance as to how to structure my answer, they stipulate that a SOA is not needed but can you give me an idea of how you stuctured your answer to make sure you covered all of their goals and objectives.
    The feedback I received was mainly that I didn't go into enough detail.

    Hi S_Nagy

    today has been a crap day, found out my IP assignment is wrong and is on its way back for me to re do!!!!! And have to go back to resit 2 modules of my SRP exam - I am trying to take the positive that at least i don't have to resit all 6!!!!

    I didn't do an SOA.

    What I did do is cover all their goals and objectives I actually listed these at the beginning of my recommendations in bullet form to make sure I didn't forget anything.

    Covered my assumptions, and did alot of waffling about why I had made the recommendations that I had.

    REcommeded a review in 6 months to cover any changes etc.

    But really I only layed it our in paragraph form.

    If you are stuck on anything in particular let me know.

    I may need some advice from you when I finally receive my assignment back.

    I am clearly not as close to the end as I thought I was LOL x

    Ah noooooooo!!!!:eek:
    IP was a bit of a pain, bet you its the stupid question about government bonds or whatever it was?? sound familiar
    I remember having to resubmit 1 question and I don't know whether I got it 100% right in the end but I must have done enough to be marked competent, I only wish there was a little more feedback with KAPLAN.
    Let me know and I'll dig it out for you, as for the SRP exam you'll be right second time round, I think they just like to give us all a hard time LOL
    I haven't done it yet though, so let me know what I need to study up on!!
