Other test topics than expected

I also feel like today’s test was not that good, but for me it is mainly due to the fact that die “Course Structure” in the “Book” is a bit Misleading.
According to the Course Structure, the topic of todays test was “A” → “Algorithms”. In the book, it is mentioned, that “A” is “A3” and “A4” → Java Collections (Chapter 8.9) and Hashing (Chapter 5.3). Because i had Corona the last 2 weeks, i was definetly not prepared for Classes and Inharitance.

Maybe if the book would have been more precise (because i also think that the topic is more than 2 weeks ago) it would have been better.

The topics are always up to and including the Tuesday in the week before with the main focus on the topics since the last test’s topics.

For today’s test, this includes J3, J4, A3, and A4.
The corresponding topics are (only very short, see the lectures and lecture notes for a fuller picture):

  • Overriding, Overloading
  • Abstract classes, Object
  • OO, OO in C, Patterns (specifically Visitor)
  • Collections
  • Hashing

The exercises in the test covered exactly these topics.

This year, also the lectures are available to see exactly what was done.
