First Java AP Computer Science Exam

the exam was easier than i expected. it was multiple choice and short answer. a majority of the multiple choice questions were about java, but there were a couple more general ones, such as converting hexadecimal to decimal. the short answer, or written part of the exam was worth half the grade and was all about writing java code. however, it was fairly simple classes and methods, mainly about using for loops and arrays. there was also adding on to the MBS (marine biology case study) program. they included a ~30 page appendix with method definitions and much of the source code from MBS classes – a lot more than you need. nothing needed to be memorized; you could do it with basic programming logic and the reference book which we were allowed to use during the test.
