File: Pfsg00100StudyGuideIndex.htmThe practice tests in this series were written specifically for the benefit of my students in COSC 1315, Fundamentals of Programming. They consists of questions, answers, and explanations. The questions are based on the material covered in my series of online lecture notes for the course. Each practice test is keyed to a specific lecture.
The purpose of the practice tests is to help you learn the material in the lecture notes by reinforcing that material through a series of questions, answers, and explanations.
