One document to rule them all

Getting things done has to be, by far, the nicest thing a student can achieve. Today, roughly an hour before the deadline that is just what happened to me and my co-workers, we’ve gone final! Yes, you’ve read it right; our seminar document is now completed and ready for you to read and possibly even frown upon. Please click here

Closing time

It’s just one of those times in your life as a student this week: the final week is neigh so the professors are or have been contemplating the final deliverables and our professor for the seminar is no exception to this rule.

To continue

Yesterday was our session with our professor, and although one of my teammembers had to be somewhere else, it turned out to be a pretty useful session after all. To get back to my previous post: the professor was slightly disturbed by our questions, and I felt like we offended him as he asked us whether we questioned not only

Questions posed

Tomorrow, the seminar-class has been canceled as our professor is attending a seminar of his own. It has been rescheduled to Thursday I’ll come back to that then.

Drawing an early conclusion

Wow, that was quick! Only a few short hours after I sent the email I mentioned to E&Y, I already got an answer: I was the first one to notice the lacking of some pages. They immediately sent me (in PDF) the concerned chapters and I’m feeling happy with my (now complete) XBRL book. Thanks for the swift reply E&Y!
