Assignment 2 : handbook 2nd ed vs. 1st ed.
May 26, 2007 06:15AM
I'm using the 2nd edition of the handook and find that parts of Assignment 2 Question 3 is only discussed in chapter 14. Volere templates and task analysis to be exact. This chapter is not part of the study material for assignment 2 as assignment 2 only goes as far as chapter 8.

Is this the same in the 1st edition of the book or are the chapter numbers in 2nd ed different?

At the time of compiting the assignments, the 2nd edition of the textbook was not available. The chapters have been restructured a bit. The following are differences between the old edition and the 2nd edition:

Chapter 6 in the 2nd edition is completely new and therefore not covered in assignment 2. The material on Data gathering and analysis in Chapter 7 of the old edition has been streamlined and extended and brought together in chapters 7 and 8 of the 2nd edition. The rest of the old Chapter 7 is in chapter 10 of the 2nd edition. Chapter 8 in the old edition is chapter 11 in the 2nd edition. The old chapter 6 is chapter 9 in the 2nd edition.

For the second assignment, chapters 1 to 11 (excluding chapter 6) are important. To accommodate this 'extra' work, the due date for assignment 2 has been extended to 30 June.

Does the extension of Assignment 2 till 30 June apply to everyone or just the students using the 2nd edition of the prescribed text?
