Dear friends;

I need your help i almost finished the implementation of my assignments and also finished the documentation, BUT

the size of choices.txt file is ~ 50000 bytes (50 KB) . actually i document any things that i see.

is the size normal or i must refactor the documentation ?

Best Regards.

Well don't know what format they put theirs in or exactly how much information they had in their files. On the other hand, if I just use point form and just describe the essential (must) topics I guess I too can get it to like 10K:
RMI vs Sockets? Choose RMI because:
* point A...
* point B..

Search algorithm logic:
1) bla
2) bla

Locking mechanism logic:
1) bla
2) bla

So it really how you "present" the information.

My document was way too long (no surprises there). But if I were to do it over, I would definitely use bullet points. Not only is this going to be easier for the assessor to digest (and keeping the assessor happy is a good thing), but it is also easier to write your "essay" answers if you only have to match the bullet points.

For anyone who's native language is not English, I think bullet points are a no brainer: do you really want to spend hours agonizing over the "correct" way to say something in English when a bullet point can be written in a few short minutes?

Regards, Andrew
