Welcome to the course! It’s a great idea to get started with the forum discussion by saying ‘hello’. Once the materials are released this Friday, you’ll have a better chance of getting to know each other but, in the meantime, this is a great way of letting us know that you’ve been able to access the course.
It’s normal to feel a little anxious about the extra work you’ll need to do for this course. We are here to support you along the way and to make sure that you don’t fall behind. Our recommendation is that you set aside a fixed time everyday to work throughout the material: If you log on little but often and make sure you don’t fall behind, you’ll be able to manage to do this course and prepare well for the exam. And if you have any difficulties, just let us know and we’ll do our best to help you!
I also look forward to meeting you all in the live sessions and in our forum discussions!
