My friend(JC) got accepted next day aft the interview. Btw, any senior can adv what to prepare/read/explore for SMU ISM before Sch start? The Sch did said they will send some info on courses for those without IT background to start on first, but till now haven't hear from them yet. Tks.

LOL! Are you serious? You haven't matriculate into SMU yet want to go for courses already. Want to be kiasu also not like that la.

And freaking do your research before asking. Don't always expect people to feed you with answers.

This is University level (not your "there is alway answers if i follow the textbook" style). If you can't

research information by yourself, i don't see why the community here should help you at all. We are

now living in a world where information can be found easily in the internet. If you can't even do

that, I strongly suggest you to wake up your idea. Anyway, this is the hard truth. Take it or leave it.

That is a very positive thinking and it will be the key factor that keep you ahead of the rest. Some people think that you are kiasu. But you will be the one that stay above rest. =)

Anyway, you may wanna PM Agenda regarding the course as he/she is from SMU ISM.

Yes it is possible to survive without bringing laptop to school. In fact thats what my juniors did. There are many computer lab in SoC. so you can always use the computers there.

If you are a Jc student, do register for the intro to programming workshop.
If you are a poly student, do register for the refresher workshop.

And welcome to NUS SoC

I disagree with you. So you said that feeding answers to someone who is too lazy to do research by himself/herself is a positive thinking mindset? How has NUS groom you through these years ? Make me wonders really. Are you trying to say that you also depend on your peers for answers than being independent when it is the uni level? Please do not corrupt the young ones. They need to know the objective of studying, not for the sake of it.

If you want to argue on this, at least do some research that SMU has not yet matriculate incoming students. Thus, these courses will be conducted in due dates.

I have no idea what you are talking about.
I am referring to the fact that he wants to start early.
May I know what is wrong with that?

Therefore I praised him for his positive thinking is wrong? you have not answered my question. So you do not like people to praise others for positive thinking?

Not from smu nor doing info system , but usually the curriculum can be found on their website. Just like poly.

Ism is this course?:

sis.smu.edu.sg/programmes/bsc-information-systems-management/curriculum/detail-ay2015-16

Maybe u can see what textbooks they are using n what topics they are covering.

Sometimes there is lack of preparation, sometimes there is over preparation. In this case, I doubt there is anything you need to prepare. You can read anything you like about the subject, but that's outside of the course.

I think if you really want to prepare, prepare your mental state.
1) Prepare to work really hard to acquire as much knowledge as possible
2) Prepare to spend your time wisely when required. Work hard, play hard
3) Prepare to be open-minded and be an empty cup rather than a half-filled cup
4) Prepare to find your course challenging.
5) Prepare for the unprepared and unknowns.

If you like IT, you would already have know things, not because you need to attend a course, but because you like knowing these stuffs. You can force yourself to prepare but it will most likely not stay in your mind.

Remember the only good reason why someone will excel in anything is because they like the thing they are doing, they love doing it as much as possible, but when you pull them away from what they love, they feels depress not able to do it anymore.

This is the passion that will drive a person to always be better than your yesterday. Remember you are not winning others, you should be winning yourself.

Goodluck

I totally second this. This is what I have been telling myself and the rest.
