Tutorial 102

So tutorial letter 102 says we need to learn one section from Chapter 15.
Am I correct in saying this was the first reference to Chapter 15. I only received this tutorial letter 2 weeks before the exam date. Surely that is too late to inform us of a new Chapter, I know the postal system is bad, but surely they should have let us know a little earlier.
I assume there will be a question from this Chapter considering it has been mentioned.

Hi there,

does it actually matter?What you guys think?

There is so much to learn anyway and that section on metrics is the one section that I found to be very interesting, although incomplete.

Being in the IT industry for 10 years and from point of view I do not agree with him on some of the points.Some points need elaboration spinning smiley sticking its tongue out;secondly he should have also have provided clear, concise examples.

Just read some of the comments in last years the forum for INF-305. There is a blog that offers some cool summaries, key points and examples on the topics in the book

Anyway, hopefully it is a multiple choice question???

Note that not the full Chapter 15 need to be studied. If a question is asked from Chapter 15 it will be from Section 15.2.

See tutorial 102 that states: "There is one section from Chapter 15, Section 15.2, which was not included in the assignments, but a question may be asked from this Section."

Good luck for the preperation.

Thanks for the confirmation Professor. I had read that fact, although I still think the notification was way too late.

Tutorial letter 102 was uploaded on 2 August 2007 to the Osprey web site. I also send it through to Despatch on this date. I have no control on how long tutorial matter take after I have send it through to despatch.

I think to have an additional 4 pages to study (the length of section 15.2) notification of a few weeks should be enough winking smiley

Good luck anyway with the preperation.
