Will be starting T214 next Feb 2011

Postby petrus on Wed Dec 01, 2010 12:34 pm

Hi all

I took the brave step of applying for this course. Reading the earlier post on past TMA and ECA results makes for encouraging reading. I hope that I'll find the course useful and that I'll see it through to the end!

Best regards

Hi Pierre,
Many of us here have survived T214.
It is not hat frightening looking back (probably in the same way as a crocodile infested river is not frightening when you are across it :-)
If you have any questions or just want encouragement, then just shout.

Hi all & Pierre,

I'm all signed up to start T214 in Feb 2011 and looking forward to it.

2011(T214) & 2012(T306) will be my final years with the OU looking to graduate with B33 just before it is retired...

I must admit I don't really know that much about systems practice.

Are there any recommended books for the course that I can tag onto my Christmas wish list?

and viewtopic.php?f=9&t=288

i'd read those. Not 'directly' relevant but useful*. and there's loads of other books in the book club page..

Hello PhilB!
I'm all signed up to start T214 in Feb 2011 and looking forward to it.

I know that feeling.
The last course is finished and you thing "Whew, time for some real life."
And then December comes along and you are busy thinking "looking forward to the next course."
Strange - but true.

Hiya

I'll be starting T214 in Feburary - and am looking to do T305 in 2012 before the courses end.

I'm looking forward to starting this as the subject matter greatly interests me so will be sure to make good use of this Forum!

Cheers

Paul

Hi Paul,
Welcome to the Systems Place.
I am sure that T214 will be an experience you won't forget.
It changed the way I look at the world.
Feel free to ask when ever you want.
We my not know the answer but we will come up with something.
Have fun
Neill

Thanks Neil, I have to admit that I am looking forward to it!

I'll also be taking B201 at the same time so hopefully I'll be able to apply some of the learning in T214 to this.

Cheers

Hi,

Another new person here! I'm also starting T214 in Feb 2011.

Just in to say Hello for the moment. I'm sure I'll be back once things start in earnest after Christmas!

I have just been looking at the reading list and have already downloaded two books onto my iPad so that I can get a head start - or at least, try and get my head in the right space ready for the start of the course.

Reading other posts it does appear that it is a popular course, so I'm looking forward to it starting.

Cheers

Steve
