Tables etc
October 30, 2006 01:45PM
I know that a tut letter has probably answered this one, BUT...

Do we have to learn the SW estimation tables? I am refering to the Albrecht Complexity multipliers, IFPUG file type complexity etc. All the table in Chapter 5?

Thanks and good luck

Where does it say that? I'm not just being a
naysayer (I've already gone ahead and
made cheat-sheets for those which I intend
to memorise), but would actually prefer not
to have to memorise that.

Without those, however, they are limited to
asking theory-type questions on chapter 5,
and no calculation questions at all.

For chapter 3 you do not need to memorise any tables or cash flow disocunting values.

Even if you did need to know it, you could calculate it with the given formula (which you should probably know).

The OP asked about chapter 5. I believe that one
of the tut letters clarified tables in chapter 3,
but I don't recall seeing anything about chapter 5.

In tutorial letter 203 the following is stated

{Regarding chapter 5}
...it is not important that you memorise all of the tables, descriptors and multiplier values. You must be able to apply your knowledge.

So you don't have to learn those tables either.
