2021-12-05 Message about the final exam that was sent to all students:
The final exam covers all the course material but focuses on the important material of lectures and lab exercises and assignments.
It contains short answer questions, coding questions, and the usual T/F and M/C questions that you have had in the quizzes.
You may use either pen or pencil (or both) but please write clearly and legibly. And write in the space provided for the answer on the exam booklet. If I cannot read your answer, or if it is not in the space provided, then I cannot award marks.
The exam booklet has the necessary cheat sheets. You may separate the cheat sheets from the rest of the booklet, but must return both the booklet and cheat sheets at the end of the exam.
The answers are carefully written so they should not need further explanation. Please write answers that are directly relevant to the question that is asked. Off-topic content that does not address the specific question will not gain you any marks.
Best of luck on Thursday, Greg
