Mind Map for Reflective Writing
It is week 10 in BIM class. I am so enjoy being here with likes and dislikes of what we have done. The most impressive experience for me, I think it should be my first time to using Excel in the class and I do not know how to format the spreadsheet data.

For example in week 3, we need to do a exercise for Income Statement and Balance Sheet in Excel, I am not good at formatting spreadsheet data and spreadsheet Design so I search and
