I was expecting something a bit more difficult, but I was pleasantly surprised and I'm happy
Agreed on the diagrams, they took up more time than some of the coding.
The ternary search was pretty easy, seemed like 6 easy marks.
Found it strange that there was so little recursion.
Glad it's over anyway, and hopefully I did as well as I feel it went
COS2144 on wednesday! My last exam for the year!
Only regret is I should have spent more time on this module. Only really got into late and so enjoyed it. Was having fun the whole of yesterday playing with pointers.
Must say that I see on 2nd level modules the exams are easy if you do all your assignments. For COS226, COS221 and this one I found that all the answers where based on assignments.
Only one thing gets my on this module and that is the Big-O - for some reason I just cannot understand it. When I look at code and write my answer down and then compare it to what the lecturer wrote then it just never make sense .... arrgghhh ... but at least I learn't last years answers for Big-O and that helped with this exam.
Good luck to those who still have exams left.
Don't Assume Everything is a Nail Just Because You Have a Really Big Hammer
I thought it was pretty cool. Loads of free marks.
Very relieved there wasnt as much recursion as the past paper, I loathe recursion.
I was also stoked to see the assignment questions I practiced alot in the paper ^_^'
As for the diagrams, I drew the first iterations with a ruler, then I figured it was gonna take a lot longer using it, and thus free hand drew the rest
COS214 is also my last. And its gonna be a biatch. I am not fond of java. On reading the assignment 1 solutions, the lecturer said that for the UML diagrams they used some UML text book (which we dont have). No wonder their solution was insanely detailed. The vagueness of the prescribed textbook would never produce a solution like that. Anyway, thats why everyone did bad in the fist assignment of COS214 :/
A nice exam! Was also surprised about the minimal amount of recursion. And what a pity I didnt finish on this one, I wrote INF320 today! But at least its all over. Good luck to all the Java students writing tomorrow
