Lecture Challenges (VO)
During the lecture, we will present small “Lecture Challenges” as a bonus. These challenges are optional, but solving them results in bonus points for the lecture exam.
The aim of the challenges is to dig deeper into a certain topic of the respective lecture. Thus, it is advisable to try to complete the challenge soon after the lecture.
- Challenges have to be solved on your own
- All challenges have to be submitted to our test system
- The bonus points are only valid for the first two exam dates
- To get the bonus points, you have to write your username on the exam sheet
- You cannot get positive with bonus points, i.e., bonus points only count if you are already positive
Exams are done in writing. The dates for the exams will be set in TUGOnline; please register there.
Exams consist of both theoretic questions and practical questions. Theoretic questions are basically the theoretic parts of the slides and possibly additional content presented in the lecture which are not part of the slides. Practical questions are, in principle, similar to the tasks given in the lecture challenges as well as in the practicals. However, the complexity of the questions is scaled to make them adequate for the time available during an exam.
All questions of the exam are in English. Answers can be given either in English or in German, at the student’s discretion.
No lecture notes, or any other materials are allowed during an exam. All materials required to solve the practical questions are provided at the exam. E.g., the provided materials include an ASCII table, a C function reference for required functions, and a table containing the required syscall parameters.
We also provide old exams to help you prepare for the exam:
