Hi,

I am doing the UrlBird assignment. I wanted to know what are the kind of questions that I can expect in the essay exam.
How should I prepare from them ?

The questions ask you about your implementation, not about Java. You don't need to prepare for the essay test at all. You should take the exam soon after sending in the assignment though so that your code and designs are still fresh in your mind.

Hey Anthony,
Thanks for the quick reply. But I still am unclear.

Are the questions specific to my assigment or my solution. For example will they ask me why I used LockManager for my implementation or will they ask me , How did you implement locking?

Some mock questions that you can think of will help me get a clearer picture?

Thanks

The questions are pretty general, such as "How did you implement X? What are the advantages and disadvantages of doing it this way?"

Just do the assignment and you'll be fine - the essay test only exists to prove that you were the one that coded the solution. Don't worry at all about the essays.
