I am in the same boat.

Haven't started reading the books though!

I lost the questions/directions to the independent case studies.  I have now no clue on what to do once I finish reading the books.

Could you please help me in any of the following:

1)  Questions/directions to the independent case studies for all the books.  Even scanned copy of the same would do.  Please also provide me with the link on how I could submit the assignments online.

2)  Link to submit assignments for the case studies as well.

I hope we could collaborate.
