This is illegal to disclose any real exam questions here.

You dont have to be too worried, because the questions are answered based on what you did in the assignment (e.g. what is the design logic for XXX OR which method you use to implement YYY and why), and thus, just you do it yourself, you wont find any problem in answering those questions.

There is a link in the FAQ to some sample questions and answers, go over them and then your design(class names etc). Thats it. If you realy did the program it should be a problem if you didnt your going to fail with a big F .

Good luck.

I took the essay exam a few weeks ago and was out of there in 40 minutes. Really easy questions, no curveballs.

Best advice I can give you is to list a few advantages and disadvantages of key design decisions you anticipate they will ask you.

Trust me, its very easy.
