CSCE A211 Midterm Exam Topics

The exam is open book and open notes.  However, they are not open-neighbor. You can use a computer to access any notes you may have taken, programs you wrote, handouts or programs I have provided, or to read your book (if you have an electronic version). However, you are not allowed to use the computer to compile and run programs or to do anything online. You will have a variety of questions on the exam.  There may be a small number of short-answer and multiple choice questions.  There will be more questions where you will be asked to write some code, or you will be given some code and asked to trace through it when executed.  The coverage is based on the lecture material. Material in the book that was not covered in lecture won't be on the exam. The topics that will be covered are listed below:

Computer Programming Overview

Variables, Identifiers, Control Structures in C++

Strings in C++

Functions/Methods in C++


Sorting Algorithms
