Notes about the lab exam:
Rules for the lab exam:
- The lab exam is an integral part of the Introduction to Programming exam,
and its primary purpose is to assess your ability to write, compile, and
execute a Java program using an integrated development environment.
- In general, the lab exam is held the same day as the written exam (either
before or afterwards, depending on the availability of a computer room).
- You have to take the lab exam together with the written part. This means
that, if you did not pass the written part, you have to repeat also the lab
exam, and vice-versa.
- The previous rule applies for all students, except for those that have
passed the midterm lab exam. The midterm lab exam is valid for all
three exam sessions of the current academic year, and students that have
passed it have to take just the written part of the exam.
- For the midterm lab exam only, a bonus point will be given
if all exercises are solved correctly. The bonus point will not be
assigned for the regular lab exams.
- You should bring an ID card with photo (Campus Card, personal ID, driving
license, etc.) to prove your identity.
- You are not allowed to consult notes, books, or online documentation,
except for the Java API documentation, which will be available on the lab
- You should develop the Java class and the client program in all their
parts, respecting the given specification.
- For a positive evaluation of the lab exam:
- The Java class in Part 1 should compile and the provided test client
program should run correctly with the class.
- The class should be developed according to the methodological
guidelines studied in the course (e.g., instance variables should be
private and access should be provided through
