    Uni??

    i'm thinking you can't take any idea of how good you are at software engineering from a BOS test! i enjoy the programming, my major project was pretty good - even if it was in VB, but most of the course was jsut what ethical and social aspects are involved, with a little bit of programming -...

    10 is D, cause 'the software developer' produces the programs, so he wouldn't say, do it yourself and don't pay me. the end-user is not making hte program, so its RAD

    What Did U Think ??

    ha! physics is pretty easy now, its just all text book stuff. well most of the trials were anyway, i got 93% raw in my trial, it was so easy. i'm taking the w/end off, and doing work next week

    Multiple choice answers

    15 is A, cause the books always go on about how communication is vital, and you wouldn't want to stop letting the client have a say about their product. its deffinately A

    worst...exam...ever

    no, it won't print i dont think, it'll just keep looping indefinately, so jam the system. to print, it has to get into ProcessTicket, which it can't if the message isn't 'TICKET'

    The BOS are a bunch of Phucken Wankers

    What Did U Think ??

    yeah, it is set too high, but even to get a band 5 last year you had to be in the top 7-8% of the state. its pretty rediculous

    worst...exam...ever

    for question 23a) i basically said there was no error handling if the wroing message header was read, so i put one in. i was working on that bit for ages, cause there was no obvious error, apart from that one. although i can hardly believe those remote computers would enter anything else but the...

    worst...exam...ever

    i put c) probably cause i do IT aswell, so you need proper maintenance etc for it

    now reading it, it does sound right, cause you have to use all 'eight data bits' in each packet

    What Did U Think ??

    yeah, i did exactly the same as blah in the exam, but i'm now not sure if its right, i got the remainder as 12 too
  19. W

    What Did U Think ??

    yeah, i'm with everyone else, 3 algorithms is way too much for the time we got, especially since it finished at 5! it was just question 23a) and i won't get full marks for that 6mark algorithm in 23b)! and i now wish i did the evolution option, not hardware, the algorithm wasn't too bad, but...

    Multiple choice answers

    yeah, for 1 i put d) and 2 c) i think i put 3A) aswell, which i know is wrong, but all the others i did the same - it was just those first few that were the doozies
