Read Chapter 4, Study Guide (â€žAnalysing Financial Statementsâ€Ÿ). Read it quickly,
perhaps skimming some parts, seeking to understand what you are reading. What is the
author trying to say? While you do this note on your copy of Chapter 4 key concepts and
questions (KCQs) that occur to you. Include a summary of your KCQs in your
ASS#2, Step 1.
Your personal engagement with the reading is what I am interested in. When reading
the chapter note down on the white spaces on the pages (or on a separate sheet of paper, if
you are reading it on a screen) your key concepts and questions (KCQs) from the reading.
These are key ideas from the chapter that seem important or interesting to you and
questions that you have as you read this material. Do not summarise the readings. I
will say it again, do not summarise the readings. I am interested in your reactions,
understandings, and questions from the readings. I know what the reading says, as I
wrote it. So simply giving me a summary of each reading will not be telling me anything
I do not already know.
Use the words â€œIâ€ and â€œmeâ€ in your ASS#2, Step 1. Different people will have different
reactions to the readings. Tell me what your reactions actually are. This is what I am
interested in. Do not tell me what you think I might want to hear. Be genuine and honest
in your reactions to the readings.
Please submit your ASS#2, Step 1 as a Word document. Your Word document
should be named as follows: â€œYour name ASS#2 (Step 1).docâ€ (for example, â€œSarah
Jones ASS#2 (Step 1).docâ€)
There are Step 2 and Step 3 in the attachment. Step 2 please do in the firm”s spreadsheet that I gave you. Thanks!
