Textbook is not essential. You are better off loaning library books teaching you how to write C syntax. A recommended text on syntaxes would be C Primer Plus by Stephen Prata. During lessons, the tutor will go through tutorials. The tutorials are a good starting point for problem solving Lectures and tutorials are equally useful. If you are good, you can learn the module off a book. Content is difficult. Since this module features an open book exam, it will be conceptually hard. No memory work is involved. Printing pages of code and bringing them into the practical/exams will only slow you down. Content is like A level/poly computing. Module is assessed using a mid term, class participation, practical exam and finals. To score for this module, use online judges (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Online_judge) to practise programming problem solving. Valladolid is a good start. Not joking, I've practised on it with ~100 accepted submission and got an A+. No pain no gain. 50% Lab 10% Mid Terms 40% Finals Not too sure bout finals and mid terms allocation. Biweekly sit-in lab where students are given 2 hours to complete a given program regarding a real-life example, with increasing weightage of 2%, starting from 8%. Practicing the take-home lab questions the week before helps students to clear any doubts regarding the codes. Midterms is 20 MCQs
