Final Destination – I

Me: “What? CA Final results are out? Very low pass percentage? Shit.”

Friend: “Yea, super bad. Why cant the institute be more liberal?! So many deserving students have not cleared.”

Me: “Hmm. Isn’t that what makes the whole course so scary? Oh wait. I forgot articleship.”

Friend: “Hehe. Yeah. Anyway how’s your studies going?”

Me: “Well, coming to think of it, its been seven months of studi-able time (PCC results were out in Jan) wasted away successfully by me so far. And considering my laziness, it doesn’t certainly look like it will end with seven months of wastage.”

Friend: “What, you tryin’ta say you haven’t started studying yet? Come on nerd. Stop kidding.”

Me: “……………………………………………”

Friend: “Ok ok. So why haven’t you started yet? You know final is not like PCC. There’s just way too much portion to be covered, you see.”

Me: “Wait. Are you my dad?”

Friend: “Hehe. I was just telling.”

Me: “Hmm. Damn. Truth hurts. Anyway, I guess I’ll start with something today.” πŸ™‚

God, so many books.Β  This is too bad. Looks like I’ll take a month to by-heart the names of the subjects even. And which group each subject belongs to, thats even harder to by-heart. Well, let me pick out one book at random and start. (One advantage of not knowing a dime at all – all subjects look the same πŸ™‚ )

Now whats this. Information Systems Control and Audit? Hmm. ISCA. Cute. Where on earth do they come up with such weird book cover designs! Anyway lets see.

____________________________________________________________

Syllabus: Level of knowledge – Advanced knowledge.

B.E.A.utiful. Just two words. Advanced knowledge. Easy to say. Kadavuley..!

____________________________________________________________

Chapter 1: Information Systems Concepts.

<Yawn ^ 200>

Oh! <Brainwave:)> I forgot to check out the Preface. Lets see what it says.

  • The basic knowledge about Information Technology gained at PCC level is sought to be built up further through this paper.

Oh devil! Isn’t that paper over yet? God. No wonder Computer Engineers are paid so much.

  • Since the level of knowledge required is ‘Advanced knowledge’, you are advised to make an early start of the study material and give repeated and intensive readings over a period of time.

Oops. Why didn’t I read this earlier. Hmm, this dialog should seriously be given more coverage. Maybe a Bold effect with a 48-size Arial font. No, seriously.

  • Try to develop in yourself some interest in this subject and study it for the purpose of learning.

Note the usages of ‘Try to develop’, ‘Some interest’. So they know the reality. Apram ennathuku intha torture!/Pinne enthinaa ee torture! 😦

  • We would welcome suggestions to make this study material more useful to the students. In case of any doubt, students are welcome to write to the Director of Studies.

Eh? What about the address to send suggestions that they welcome? Ah. Sleek..

Hmm. Such a long preface. Enough for today. Yawn. <Snore>

P.S: When I find a greyish looking dusty book 3 months later during the yearly cleaning up and excavation of my room, please remind me it was this book. πŸ™‚
