    Hi Cam,

    Your notes are very good.However under BSCM i can only access the Intro to Supply Chain Management notes.I was wondering if you grant me access to other notes under the same category.

    Thanks

      Hi Phillip,

      I just uploaded a few more outlines under BSCM. I’ll continue to upload more as I convert them from my hand-written notes to electronic versions.

      Thanks!

    Hi Cam,

    These notes are awesome. Any chance you can upload the rest of your course notes??
    I found the first four very helpful as Quick and Speedy Notes for refreshment on some important topics.

    Best regards,
    Anthony. 😀

      Sorry Brennan,

      I haven’t added those notes yet because when I took the first test I was using paper and pen to take notes instead of my computer. I have since lost those paper notes so I’ll need to create them again. My goal is to get them up in the next few weeks.

    Hi Cam,

    Thanks for creating and sustaining this site. This will be a great resource throughout my studying for the first several modules.

    Please do update with the your paper notes! This will be a very helpful summary for us to follow along to.

    Thanks,
    Brendan

      Hey Brendan, I’m glad you like the site and I hope it’s at least a little useful for you. I was actually thinking about uploading some videos that explain key concepts for the first module. Do you or anyone else out there think that would be useful?

    Hi Cam,

    Fabulous effort! Thank you so much for keeping this blog updated. It has been very helpful.

    I think videos will be great but honestly I don’t know how much effort it would take on your part to record them. Usually when I am stuck on a concept that I do not understand completely I would just google and see some short online course about it. There are plenty of online material available (edX and coursera) but of course one needs to dig through all of it to find meaningful content.

    Thanks!
    Nick

    Hi,

    I’m getting ready to take bscm test again. I failed the first time receiving a score of 295. So discouraged I didn’t want to try again. I know I will not move up in my company if I don’t become certified.
    What tips can you provide. Besides studying is the book material management a good resource.

    I recommend purchasing the APICS practice exams from the website. I think they are $40.00 per module and are well worth it.
