This test will be multiple choice, true/false, and short answer. If you come to class, complete the exercises, and read the industry updates, then you should do okay on the exam. Studying the slides and notes should pay off for you with a better grade. My goal when writing this test is not to be the major separating factor in final grades (although it will happen) — my goal is to reward students who have come to class, listened to the lectures, and paid attention when completing the exercises.
Here are some useful pages for your studying:
- Notes (on one page)
- Questions (on one page) — I added a page for industry update questions
- Schedule (on one page, PDF including graphics from each page (3.6MB, 79 pages))
- Exercises (on one page)
- Blogs (on one page)
You'll also want to be sure to pay particular attention to the slides that I used and the graphics (line drawings) that I created.

What will it be like?
Last year's test had 40 questions:
- 20 multiple choice & true/false
- 15 short answer
- 5 queries that you had to construct
I have no guarantees (at this point) about how this year's test will be put together…but it would surprise me if it were much different from this. I'll let you know if things change.
