I wonder if it is even worth our time to do these previous exam questions - so much is different between the two exam papers we have.
There is so much theory in this module that the examiners can pick and choose, and I don't think anybody will be able to memorize everything.

I am incined to think I may have to study everything in the textbook to be sure, and there is definitely not enough time left for that!

O well, time will tell!

I think I will still go through the exam questions - maybe we are luckysmiling smiley

Hey, another writing smiling smiley The number are going up! smiling smiley

As a note, I wouldn't go through the past papers expecting to find repeated questions in this exam.

But the past papers provide a decent cover of the material, and so tests to ensure whether you have covered the work necessary to get through this paper. Basically, the way I see it, is that between the 2 papers, the general areas of focus are covered; ie: you should have a general idea of testing (with a specific focus on OO testing), processes (with a focus on Agile Processes) and then the requirements section.

To be honest, I've been reading through the material over the past few days; just the chapters marked "study". I don't think my limited memory will get everything in, so I'm focusing on specific areas, and then repeatedly reading through the rest. And it helps a lot. I actually tend to remember the reading stuff more. Also, using just the summaries from the website isn't going to work either: there's a wealth of material not mentioned in the summaries that provide reasonable questions for the exams.

The past papers at least help to keep my focus on the required work...
