Well Well,

That blog post I did on Saturday was very sweet of me, that's what you get for jumping based on the first 2 chapters of the book, having read further through I say, yikes!

Yes this is really a big step up from level 1 and only in the first block of the level 2 module. As I get further along it might well be very trickly indeed.

Just remember Michael, it is a managed journey, your being taught and you, hopefully, will learn.

Level 2 study is challenging!

Third blog, third year of study, good things come in threes?

i have my books and the module is open so i have started to work my way through the study planner.

i would admit to having positive time management issues, i can never have enough time banked up in advance. so i hope to get and stay three weeks ahead of the study planer.

I have peeked at the first tma question and it seems very manageable, so hopefully i can start off this year of study in a good positive fashion.

So DD211 is off to a good start for me and lets hope it continues in that vein.

18 months between blog posts..... no prizes for me then.

Now i have completed the YO32 Module and the DD103 module, both passes, my mind starts to turn (worry) about my next DD211 module, which is a level 2 module. 

Never been to level 2 before, i did notice the step up from YO to level 1 was a tangible jump in work load and required understanding.

will the same be true of moving between level 1 and level 2?

Just finished the first of my three true or false statements on my TMA 01.

it took one and a half hours to write 169 words and the referances!

Guess that since i have not studied or attempted anything like this for 33 years, i was always going to be a bit slow.

Lets hope i speed up as the course gets going.
