Exam 1 consists of 3 sections: Free response/short answer questions (roughly 70 points): Questions where you'll be asked to write a phrase, list, or a few sentences or do a short calculation to show your knowledge/comprehension of some topic (many of these come from the first week material) Questions where you'll be asked to write a line or a few lines of code Questions where you'll be asked to "play computer," i.e. I'll give you a line of code and you have to tell the values of variables in memory or tell the exact output generated by running the code True/false questions (roughly 10 points): Statements about the language or CS theory Boolean expressions to evaluate Programming application problem (roughly 20 points): You'll be given a programming problem similar to the kinds of problems you see in lab and asked to write code to solve it. The majority of the points here will be based on whether you choose the optimal programming techniques and solve the problem in the best way possible based on what you've learned in class so far. What's the Content? Essentially, everything that's a bullet point on the schedule up to and include switch , but NOT text processing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
