Dear friends;

I need your help i almost finished the implementation of my assignments and also finished the documentation, BUT

Well don't know what format they put theirs in or exactly how much information they had in their files. On the other hand, if I just use point form and just describe the essential (must) topics I guess I too can get it to like 10K:
RMI vs Sockets? Choose RMI because:
* point A...
* point B..

Search algorithm logic:
1) bla
2) bla

Locking mechanism logic:
1) bla
2) bla

So it really how you "present" the information.

My document was way too long (no surprises there). But if I were to do it over, I would definitely use bullet points. Not only is this going to be easier for the assessor to digest (and keeping the assessor happy is a good thing), but it is also easier to write your "essay" answers if you only have to match the bullet points.

For anyone who's native language is not English, I think bullet points are a no brainer: do you really want to spend hours agonizing over the "correct" way to say something in English when a bullet point can be written in a few short minutes?

Regards, Andrew
