Excelsior College - new exam - Introduction to Computer Programming Using Java
#1
well it's new to me at least

Link : Excelsior College | Introduction to Computer Programming Using Java

when in the world did this happen ?

Description: This examination measures knowledge and understanding of material typically taught in a lower-level undergraduate course in Computer Programming. The content of the exam corresponds with course offerings such as Introduction to Computer programming, Computer Science I or Introductory programming using object oriented programming/Java. Students are expected to have basic proficiency in computer use and in the applications (such as any Java IDE) they will use to help prepare for this examination. This examination tests for comprehension and understanding of Introduction to programming in pursuit of organizational goals and strategies. The exam specifically tests for an understanding of computer and software organization; the software development process; variables, constants, primitive data types, expressions and operators; control statements; modularity and function design; linear data structures; object oriented design, classes and objects; and files in the Java language. (Multiple-Choice examination)

Exam Type: Multiple Choice

Credit / Level: 3.0 / Lower

Exam Fee: $95*

Exam content guide for this exam available soon.

I wonder if it will duplicate Saylor's CS101 - Introduction to Comp.Science I (NCCRS approved) course?

It depends on the school and how closely they read the course descriptions. The CC I attended, TESC, and COSC all see my Principles of CS II (taught in Java) and Intro Object Oriented Programming in Java as two seperate classes even though they covered the same material.

Can you be so kind to tell how TESC transcribed Principles of CS II (taught in Java) and Intro Object Oriented Programming in Java ?

CAP-238 Object Oriented Programming
COS-103 Computer Science II

Both of these are 4 credits for me, so they do not fit into the programming requirement for the BSBA:CIS. I'm hopping that once I complete the 12 UL credits, they will move into the requirement.

So, I'm a Software Engineer who programs in Java. I got bored and decided to look over their practice problems and found 4 broken test questions.

2) The name System can be used. The pre-existing System is in the java.lang package, but someone could create their own System class in any package with another name and use it fine.
If you create a "System" class inside your own package named "java.lang" you immediately lose access to the pre existing "System" class though.

9) Does not show "the method below", making it impossible to answer.

16) The purpose of the File class is to get access to file on the disk. It cannot store data on the disk, you would need FileWriter, BufferedWriter, etc.. To store data on the disk. The File class allows you to check a file's permissions, delete a file, create an empty file, see if a file exists, and a hand full of other features, none of which allow you to write to the file.

18) This answer isn't entirely true. I just tested this with a BufferedWriter and as long as you use the "flush" method, which puts your data into the file and saves the file, then your data will be saved fine, so using the "close" method isn't needed to save the data. This is because the "close" and "flush" methods both use the "flushBuffer" method to save data.

I really wish companies would check their tests more thoroughly...
I'm a 19 year old, Software Engineer, who is enrolled at TESC for a B.A. in Computer Science. My bachelors coursework is completed and I am waiting for graduation to roll around. Will start pursuing ALM in Information Technology with a concentration in Software Engineering from Harvard Extension School sometime in the coming year.
