Best wishes on the exam.


What to expect

For the first part of the exam, you will provide well-written answers to a small number of thought-provoking questions.

Note: These questions will be provided to by email on Tuesday April 19 (during the morning), so that you have time to prepare your answers.


For the last part of the exam, you will review some program code from an iOS app. You will be expected to answer some questions about the program code. You should be able to draw and describe the user interface, describe the interaction/usage/flow of the app, and describe the program code’s operation, functionality, and usage in detail.


Reference sheet

The reference sheet rules for the final exam are as follows: You will be permitted to use one hand-written reference sheet, as described next.

For each question (on the first part of the exam), you can write up to eight (8) key words (in English), on your reference sheet.

Choose words that will help you create, during the exam, a well-written answer for each question.

Your professor will examine your reference sheet at the beginning of the exam period, and allow or deny its use. If its use is denied, you have the option of re-creating a reference sheet before you begin work on the exam. However, you will not get a time extension.


Reference information of any kind is NOT PERMITTED for the last part of the exam, the program code review.
