Thus far, the Unstructured Learning plan is going really well.
Fundamentals of Accounting Text
I’m currently working on the homework for Chapter 4 of the Textbook, which I read last Thursday. This puts me right on schedule with where I would be if was still in class. This Thursday I will read Chapter 5, and by then I need to have Chapter 4 homework done.
Interesting side note: At the beginning of chapter 4, I discovered that there is a software package that goes with the text book which is used to teach the student about software-based accounting. I picked up the software package for $12, where it normally costs $50. Score.
I took a GMAT practice test, without any studying, and got a 520, which is 40 points less than the lowest score I need to get into CU-Denver’s business college.
I missed more than half of the math questions (no surprise there, as it’s been a long time since Geometry and Algebra II in middle school), so I know I’ve got to brush up on my math skills. I also missed a third of the reading question, but I finished that section the test with 25 minutes to spare. What that means is that I need to slow down and read more carefully, but 2/3rds right isn’t too bad.
I need to step up my study schedule on the GMAT, as I have to have taken the actual test before the April 15th early admissions deadline. As February is almost half-over, I realize that April 15th isn’t actually that far away.
