In the previous years, they've given exams which allowed us to bring own notes and books regarding the subject, which was quite alright since there are no answers to a programming task, just various methods to do the same (simply put. It may be only one "good" option, but there are many possibilities). This year, however, they're disallowing us to bring books and notes, and instead we have to know it all by ourselves, which isn't any problem, since I know most of the stuff in this course.
What I am afraid of, though, is all the poorly written questions we may be asked. If the mid-term tests were of any relevance, I am feeling gravely for this. I did score 85% and 95% (all errors except one on the first test were just me not thinking straight and the last was poor Java adaptation into the Norwegian language), but I noticed that some of the questions didn't provide any correct answer. For instance, we had a question which was something like:
Which of the following Java code is not valid, and we got about 5 different choices to choose from. All the code was something like for(int i = 0; i < myString.length(); i++), but the problem was that all options were misspelled. Seriously, none of the code given were correct. The code we were given was for(int i = 0; i < myString.lenght(); i++), and even though it's a small error, imagine what they could screw up at something as large as an exam. Unfortunately I could not comment on this, so I pretended that length was spelled correctly and chose the most correct accordingly.
I have been home alone since Friday morning, when Anniken traveled to Skien. I'm going after her tomorrow, and I'm looking very much forward to it. :-)
