Until SkyNet attacks :(
I'd also bet a lot of people here would be out of a job, what's the use for programmers when computers will have AI that could do everything. Boycott the AI programmers I say, while you still can!
You just integrate your consciousness into the network, problem solved.
Watch Ghost in the Shell dude.
Do it yourself borg kit - some self assimilation required.
No, I was only looking for study materials. Not looking for "Braindumps" like people get for the CCNA and MCP tests.
I believe I am a "Master Googler" but have not come up with much.
Where are these "Homework questions" on this board? Pardon my ignorance, just not familiar with it yet.
Homework questions are frequent on the forum, where someone posts a task designed to teach programming, and more less expects the forum to supply all the code (without major bugs) to the original poster, thus avoiding the thinking/learning required to produce the code in the first place.
Most of them do not appreciate that we are actually trying to help them by NOT answering with a complete direct answer to their request.
I don't know, my college programming homework assignments were pretty simple. Why not check out ACM's programming competition samples.
Thanks, I'll do that.
The ironic thing is, I'm not a programmer. I'm a network guy with a degree in Marketing. Hence, should be a BUSINESS Systems Analyst, not Systems Analyst. I had one Java class in college. I only have to take this test because of the title they are giving me - hence why I'm freaking out a bit.
I'll check out the ACM stuff...
Well, if you're not a programmer, scratch the ACM, they are algorithmical "competition" programs that would require a pretty extensive degree of understanding in programming and that sort of thing.
I mean, you shouldn't be taking the test, let a programmer take it.
Thanks for the help guys. I appreciate venting if nothing else.
A quick search in google seems to indicate that this test doesn't actually test your current ability to program, but rather your aptitude to learn programming. I may have it wrong, but that is what it seems to me. Of course, the ability to learn something and the ability to do something are quite different.
Are you entirely sure you're applying for the right job?
Because from your most recent admission, you've never done any C or C++, and only a smattering of Java. If this job in any way involves you getting your hands dirty in the code, you will be hopelessly lost.
Unless you're looking to retrain as a programmer and they're willing to take you all the way from "noob" status.
ISTR these aptitude tests have little to do with actual programming, and more along the lines of
"What's the next number in this series"
"1 3 5 7 9 x"
Then some multiple choice answer.
Then some tougher questions towards the end.
Some of the tests are designed not to be finished unless you're a real wizard, just so that they can get a nice profile across the board.
a) how many you attempted
b) how many you got right
they'll figure out if you've got "the right stuff" for becoming a programmer.
Accumulating a few sample C or C++ programs between now and the test isn't going to help you IMO. Just show up with what you know, and take your shot.
Has anyone ever had to take the Computer Aptitude Test by ExpertRating.com or the CPAB Test via CreativeOrgDesign.com?
I have some sample questions from them, is it OK to post in the HOMEWORK section of the site or post them here?
Sure, post a couple of questions and your answers, then we'll tell you whether you're on the right track.
