Well, the P4EB exam was last week, so that wraps up that module – unless something goes terribly, terribly wrong and I have to resit!
The exam deviated from the previous years’ exams quite a bit. In two parts, the first part being pretty much just bookwork, the second part being a choice of three questions and more analysis based. In previous years, the second part was a set of three standalone questions, which meant that they were pretty well defined and it was fairly easy to see what knowledge the question wanted you to demonstrate.
This year, the second part consisted of business description and context diagram that was then used as the basis for all three questions. I thought that the questions weren’t so well defined, and so I’m not totally sure how much or little I should have answered with. Oh well – time will tell!
That’s also half-way through the taught part of the course – three down, three to go. For the last three I’ll be heading back to Computer Science modules, probably centred on Logic, Ontologies and Natural Language Processing – which means that I need to spend some quality time with mathematical logic this summer ready for next year.
