Im doing better than expected. I thought the 2006 paper was good, easier than past years and hopefully this years paper will be fair.


I hope to get an A but i'll settle for a B

Just know all the stuff really lol. I think it's too early into the new course to say "you need to learn X" because we don't really know what has a pattern of coming up and stuff - that's why I'm extra worried! tongue.gif hehe

Heres hoping it's a good paper though! tongue.gif

Well yeah i guess so and also theres not much pastpapers to revise on and too much things to remember.

Feeling mostly confident. I have a funny feeling about something about security strategy or upgrade strategy in Section 2 maybe. Hope normalisation isn't too tough. My tip to you all for normalisation. If a date is mentioned and it is in the second entity in 1NF then it will be part of the compound key. Last year's paper had this type of situation.

Good luck to you all.

I hope upgrade strategy doesnt come up. I know it good enough, but I'm not excellent at writing all about it lol

If it came up they would ask you about future proofing which is making sure a ystem when it is upgraded will have a reasonable life span. Also legacy systems which are systems running on old hardware and an old operating system.

Yep.

I'm just hoping it's not like"outling an upgrade strategy" like you get with backup and security etc.

I hope it doesn't ask you to give an example of a metaphor like it did with last years pastpaper...
