Excellent tutorial...this has helped me immensely.

One question--how does the approach speed get in the MCP window?  Is this automatically set once APP mode is engaged?  Reason I am asking is that you seem to be on an awfully short final, but your speed was showing 234 knots.  I find myself going to SPD mode and setting the Vref in the window manually.

you've to manually slow down speed. Cannot transfer speed to MCP as far as I remember(unless you press VNAV then it would pick from FMC)
Yes my approach speed is bit high at that point but that point is where i'm trying to intercept localizer but right at runway threshold my speed is close to what i calculated . You basically show down as you come down the glideslope extending flaps. Cheers ;)
