Hi

I am preparing for Part 3 SCEA exam and have the following questions. Would greatly appreciate if someone can help answer them or share your experience.

1) For each questions, are we expected to write a lot? how long are the answers expected? e.g. 5-10 lines.
Can 5 lines warrant the marks required i.e. 25 marks out of 100 for each of 4 questions.
2) Do we need to draw any additional diagram in our answer?
3) Would there be any question like comparing 2 diagrams or designs and choosing the better approach? Or is it very generic based solely on our submission?
4) Is it an open book? Are we allowed to bring printouts of part 2 diagrams into the exam to help in answering?
5) What study materials do you recommend? What are the questions like?

>>>> There is no published information as to how much is enough. So whatever lines you can take to convey your answer should be good. Have your answer bulleted, so that you can convey more in less words.

2) Do we need to draw any additional diagram in our answer?
>>>>No.

3) Would there be any question like comparing 2 diagrams or designs and choosing the better approach? Or is it very generic based solely on our submission?
>>>>Why did you choose so-n-so would be there, but no diagrammtic questions.
more towards your submission.

4) Is it an open book? Are we allowed to bring printouts of part 2 diagrams into the exam to help in answering?
>>>>No way.

5) What study materials do you recommend? What are the questions like?
>>>>Same as your 1st test and 2nd submission.
For preparation, write down all non-functional reqt for any application, how your design supports them and why they are better over other decisions.
your part3 will cover just that.
