    Taking a Programming Test and need help with something.

    First time posting and I would appreciate any input on what I should do.

    I learned to program (very recently) from the book c++ without fear and C++ something or other im at work dont have book, and come to find out I need 3 credit hours in order to fulfill my computer programming requirements for my degree (nuclear engineering tech.). The only classes they offer a test (ie tecep same as a clep) for is C programming, Qbasic and Basic. There is a c++ programming class however they require basic and c in order to meet the prerequisites. So instead of sitting through a class I want to test out of it.

    I have a link to what will be on the test and if I should go back and learn the little niches within C vice C++. Do you feel that I could pass with my C++ knowledge based on the link provided below on the test description.

    Watch the cross posting.

    Yes, those example questions would appear to show the real test is quite simple. If you know C like you said you did, then you should have no problem with it. Did you have trouble answering those questions?

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
