60% final exam, 2 hours, held in June

Before undertaking this unit, students are strongly encouraged to read:

Laboratory and project work:

There will be weekly 2 hour lab sessions in CS&SE lab 2.01, programming on Apple Macs (although the programs should work exactly the same on Windows or Linux).

There will be set lab sheets and two mini-projects to complete during your lab sessions, although you will most likely find that you require additional time beyond the set lab times. Laboratories commence in week 2 of the semester, and will be supervised by the lecturer.

Recommended Reading/Text:

Some of material in this unit will be based on the following text, and it is recommended that you read the relevant chapters (and the rest would not hurt, since it is an excellent book). Much of the earlier material will follow this text closely, but we won't follow it nearly as closely later when we focus on the details of programming in Java, C++ and Objective C.
