Project Exam Questions

Hi guys,

I have just submitted my project, however I still have to sit the exam.

I was just wondering what the 4 essay style questions consist of? I can find very little information other than it will be related to my code.

Can any give me some sample questions, or explain what details they will be loooking for, as Im quite worried about booking the exam until I know what Im going to be asked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Kind Regards,
B Chen

I just took the exam. Don't worry, its a piece of cake. You are given two hours, but I finished in 30 minutes and spent 15 minutes reviewing.
Just review your choices.txt for your design decision and quickly go over your code. If you wrote your assignment, you should have no problem.
The main objective is to convince the grader that it is you who wrote the assignment. You don't have to explain every little detail, just enough to get your point across.
Take the exam soon after you submit while the information is still fresh in your mind.

Hi Diarmuid,

The only sample question we allow to be posted in this forum is:
Why did you choose RMI or Sockets?
As you can see, this style of question is very easy for you to answer, since you wrote the code. But someone who didn't write the code might not know the answer (and not all questions are quite so straightforward as that).

If you are really interested in seeing some other examples of questions, take a look in the reading material FAQ: there is a link to some questions posted on the web that were thought up by another author.

Regards, Andrew

P.S. Your display name is Diamuid - which one is correct?
