Am I correct in saying we only need to study the textbook and not togaf?

Yes only the text book must be read for Exams. Refer to TUT 203

look i dont have a foot to stand on here, they asked the definition of EA from TOGAF etc in one of the tuts,
but i sure as hell didnt give it any attention. i thought it wouldnt be asked and there it was.
did anyone else lose points on this one?

Yups same here.
I just gave the textbook definition, left the TOGAF, and EA BODY
definitions out and made up some mumbo-jumbo for my own
definition/view.

Overall, the paper was great.

Is it just me or do others out there feel that this module would've
been a perfect candidate for a MCQ exam. Moreover, it shouldn't
be an Honours level module, but rather a 2nd or 3rd year module.
Agh just my 2 cents.

The paper was fine. As for TOGAF, according to exam guidelines, the lecturer indicated that one must go through all the assignments. I gave a textbook definition...I did not bother to think confused smiley

As for the content...I guess in any qualification there will always be easier and more challenging modules.

Agreed.

How does the 110 mark rule work? Does it mean
an extra/bonus 10 marks for us to "play with" or
will we be marked as a percentage out of 110?
For e.g. if I get 75/110, will I get 75% or will I get 68%?

I also won't get many marks for that definition.

I could tell that i spent a lot of time on the first couple of chapters and not so much on the rest.


Guess we'll see how it goes
