So I started officially this week in my computer science course. I enjoy it very much so far. However, is there any way the lecturers are allowed to give students like past papers? So we can get a rough idea of what kind of questions will be asked to base our revision of this? or maybe get given like exam criteria?
Could someone please give me revision tips on how to start revising? I mean we have been told to buy countless numbers of books, but I dont even know like what content in the book to study if I buy them? I am currently studying the modules computer systems, and quantitative methods for computing for semester 1.
We are assessed 60% Multiple Choice test, and 40% group project on the computer systems module, and for Quantitative methods for computing
module it is 45% exam, 55% worksheets (aka online coursework kind of thing)
All replies are appreciated

Whether or not past papers are given out is very dependent on module and uni. Exam criteria etc may also change year on year. In terms of revision, stick with what you know has worked for you in the past and then slowly explore how you like to study at uni level. Wrt books I wouldn't go out and buy anything yet. See what's available in the library and make your own notes during lectures and from books to help with your understanding. Then keep going over them.
