Hi everyone.
Just finished uploading my project yesterday. I wanted to know how to prepare for the essay exam.
Is the essay exam just about the design decisions that you have made for the programming assignment?
Any link on how to prepare, or books etc. would help a log.
Thanks
PK

Hi.
Don't worry about the essay. It's as easy as 123 and lot's of people here have done it in 20 minutes (like me).
The questions concern how you have made the assignment, for example, how the lock/unlock has been implemented, if you have used a AbstactTableModel, etc.
Just read your design choices before the essay and do it quickly so that you don't forget what and how you have done the assignment.

I really got the impression from my essay exam that its purpose was just to test if I had done the assignment myself.
There was nothing asked that someone who'd made their own design decisions and implemented their own solution couldn't answer with their eyes closed (metaphorically )
My questions were essentially about the major design choices that are spelt out in the assignment (mine was FBN).
BTW, my exam had only four questions, not the five I think it still mentions on Sun's website. I checked with Monica and they have changed the exam to only four questions now, and the website should be updated soon to reflect this.
Good luck when you take the exam. But it really isn't anything to worry about!
