Midterm Exam #1 CMSC 436 Programming Handheld Devices Fall 2011 October 19, 2011 Guidelines Put your name on each page before starting the exam. Write your answers directly on the exam sheets, using the back of the page as necessary. If you finish with more than 15 minutes left in the class, then bring your exam to the front when you are finished and leave the class as quietly as possible. Otherwise, please stay in your seat until the end. If you have a question, raise your hand and I will come to you. Note, that I am unlikely to answer general questions however. If you feel an exam question assumes something that is not written, write it down on your exam sheet. Barring some unforeseen error on the exam, however, you shouldn’t need to do this at all, so be careful when making assumptions. Question Points Score 1 30 2 20 3 25 4 25 Total 100
