DPS913 APD601 Test 2 is Fri Mar 19

You will have a test today. It will test you on iPhone OS programming, Core Data specifically. The test will have a written portion, and a programming portion (done on a classroom computer).


Prepare for today’s class

Ask yourself two questions: Can I explain? Can I do? If you can answer “yes” to both, you’re in good shape


Coming up in DPS913 / APD601

Wed Mar 24 – continue studying iPhone device feature programming

Fri Mar 26 – continue studying iPhone device feature programming

Wed Mar 31 – likely an introduction to Mac OS programming


Test 2 is today

Test 2 is Friday March 19.

It is worth 10% of your final course grade, and will be a mixed-format test – there will be a written portion, and a programming portion. It will cover iPhone programming, specifically Core Data. You may be asked about factual information, as well as concepts, which will give you an opportunity to demonstrate reasoning, analysis, and synthesis skills.

Written portion – The question types will include short answer, multiple choice, sequencing, and so on.

Programming portion – You will create an iPhone OS application that meets a specification. It will be a simple application that uses the Core Data object persistence framework.

Try not sit directly beside another student. If each row is occupied by three students (student – empty – student – empty – student), the room will accommodate almost all students.

Best wishes on the test.


Reference material and resources

The following lists the reference resources which are permitted and those which are not allowed.


  • Written portion – one reference sheet; see the “Reference Sheet Guidelines” in the policies and standards section of the DPS913 Policies & Standards document
  • Programming portion – the same reference sheet; you can also use online sources as a reference

Not allowed:

  • Written portion – online resources, digital devices like iPod touch, iPhone, or other smartphone/whatever

Pay attention to the note about the reference sheet. Do NOT copy/paste my notes etc. At the beginning of the test, I will inspect your reference sheet, and reserve the right to disallow its usage.


Reminder about DPS913 Policies & Standards
