Hey all,

I have an exam of Java this afternoon, we never had any exam of this before so i dont know what to expect at all....

Now during the final hours just before the exam everyone seems to be stressed like hell...

Since i know alot of you have already done some programming exams , i was wondering wether you have some good tips ... ( we are not allowed to use internet or a comp during the examination.. everything is going down on paper )...

Thanks in advance.

Before you hand in, go through every page just looking for missing semicolons. Then go through once again just looking for matching braces etc.

They probably won't deduct many points for errors like that, but they are so unnecessary.

If you've done your homework and understand all the concepts, the test should be a breeze. I've never found a programming test to be difficult.

what will this cover and how will be the format? will it be writing code? will this be on concepts? here is a link from one of my school's introductory classes which has some exams on it: http://logos.cs.uic.edu/102/Tests/index.htm

you could also go back to that professor's personal website on which he links to other introductory courses.

Have fun, and good luck!

Like you said ... it was like a breeze .. :)
We didnt even had to write out a whole simple program.. it were questions like what compile errors will you get when trying to compile this code?
And things like what will this return etc... it was more to check imo wether you just understand what is going on in some pieces of code...

I thought it would be more difficult .... well now its just waiting for the results which iŽll hopefully get within a week or 3.

Anyway thanks for replying although there were no replies by the time i left for school.
But still i found them usefull, especially axonŽs link iŽm going to print out that whole test and try and solve it just for fun. Oh and axon are there any solutions out there for CS 102 - Introduction to Programming - Midterm Exam Fall 2004 ? ( thanks in advance )

Thanks guys,

if there are, they would be somehwere on his pages...

if you want a little tougher exam, here is a link to a class I took with that same professor last semester - some question are probably not relevant to what you're doing, but you can check it out: http://logos.cs.uic.edu/340/tests/index.html you might want to grab them ASAP as this info might not be there for very long.... btw, I got an 84% and 96% respectively :)

EDIT:: BTW The answer for the 5th short answer question on the first midterm is wrong

The Hamster and Turtle question? How is it possible to use polymorphism if Animal doesn't define a method sound()?
