  1. AWESOME case study, AWESOME analysis and AWESOME references…….

    Very well done posting Pak Asyhad!!!

    Just keep showing to me and to your colleagues you know how to use these tools and techniques under REAL LIFE CONDITIONS and you should be very well prepared for the very tough “Part 2” narrative questions on the AACE Exams.

    Unfortunately, this is the ONLY way I have of really helping you prepare for those specific questions. And almost NEVER has anyone from our classes FAILED that part of the exam. As a matter of fact, several people who have used the 7 step format have been given EXTRA points for having done so.

    Bottom line- VERY important that you master this way to analyze problems not only for the exam but in your real day to day working environment….

    Keep up the good work!!
