Relevant topics for test

Some students are unsure which topics are relevant for tomorrow’s test. Some say you should know everything up to Lecture 10 and Tasks 4 and 5 and others say only the topics directly related to C are relevant, so no lists and trees. That would be everything up to lecture 9 and exercise sheet 4 and only part of exercise sheet 5. Now which of these is correct?

The general rule is: "Contents: everything since the last minitest, up to the lecture on Tuesday the week before.“

Also, Appendix C of the script details the topic for each week. We usually try to keep the minitest to one topic. For example, the next minitest will cover topic ‘S’, i.e. formal programming language semantics, in particular C0. This week’s minitest was about C.
