I'm a few courses into this diploma, and we recently had a baby.... He can be a little challenging at times.

I work full time as a junior QS as well (lucky break).


these past 2 courses (107/108) have been more challenging than most, as my son requires more time for bed, frequent wake ups etc. plus my longer working hours.


I'm considering going down to 1 course per trimester (I really want to keep going at this speed, to get it completed) as I've been a little overwhelmed with the amount of work required, plus work, plus family time.

If anyone has any tips for me to keep going on 2 courses at a time I'd be much appreciated.

(next 2 course would be CON109, and CQS101).


Cheers all.

My name is Ryan and I am studying towards the old National Diploma in Quantity Surveying.  


Am currently doing the US 9637 Programme Practice an am struggling.  Anybody out there who has mastered the network diagram / early or late start / float concepts?


Thanks in advance.
