December Test review – Jan 2011 paper

Exam techniques:

  • Avoid ambiguity (B.O.D – benefit of doubt on paper)
    • Expand ideas – not brief
    • State ideas clearly – not over complicated
  • Attempt all questions
  • Read question carefully
    • Look out for ‘Describe’ and ‘Explain’
      • Describe = less detail
      • Explain = knowledge
    • Answer with the right topic (q3)

Topics to revise:

  • RAD/Prototyping model
  • Wired & Wireless connection of devices
  • Binary subtractions
  • Confidentiality of data (essay questions)
  • Transmission of data on a network
  • Data input methods (e.g. OCR)
