What are you using to revise customer service (the link is broke) and operations and technology (the link takes you to making operational decisions)? Both these errors are on the tutor2u website too.

No I'm doing the old spec BUSS2, I think the new spec has a different code, when I went for my BUSS1 exam, the people doing new spec had a different code and went in before us.

What was the first question again I can't remember, I remember doing lots of stuff on debt factoring and shortening trade terms for the last question (2D) rather than sale + leaseback of the £9.2 million property.

Overall I found it good, compared to BUSS1 there was definitely less quantitative data to consider and I thought BUSS1 was more financially based rather than BUSS2.

I left myself about 10 minutes for the last question though which resulted in abit of a hurried conclusion however I got all the main points in.

I didn't resit Unit 1 but heard there was many calculations to do

First one was change in labour productivity

Yeh last one I was rushed for and same here I actually talked more about other solutions rather than sale and leaseback itself

Otherwise the other questions were fine I tried to use as much application as possible and evaluate throughout, so overall I think it went better than my first sitting.
