Thought it was ok, thought it was hard (my freind didn't) hadn't revised for half the stuff that came up (DNS :-( )... No stuff on DBMS's, IO, Gateways, Routers, Toplogies... Basically reckon im gonna be resitting because I didn't revise stuff DNS etc... Argh... Anyway... Yeah weird exam, think the examiner was just bored or angry and decided to throw in all the odd questions he had left over...

I didn't like the uneven distribution of marks in question one, as databases are not my strong point really. Other than that it wasn't too bad, I didn't explain packet switching in as much detail as I should have though.

Ditto, I wrote something along the lines of "a packet is sent to a node, who then receives the packet and sends another packet as a confirmation..." might not be detailed enough for a computing exam... :-(

And yeah the uneven distribution of marks sucked too, I'm not that strong on the normalisation stuff (Thats the main chunk of the marks, think I managed to do OK on the SQL statement though...)

Also the fact that Date wasn't in the field names given threw me, until I re-read the question and realised you had to add that in...

Anyway, Its over, All my exams done! YAY! ;-)

Yeah, took me a while to figure out that they only listed the attributed for three of the tables. Luckily in Computing exams you get that spare time to spend staring at something for 30 mins. Assuming I did that bit correctly then the SQL question should have been ok. :p:
