Free Response Question Tips & Practice

  • 4 free response questions in 1 hour and 45 minutes
  • Each question worth the same amount, so don’t spend excessive time on any question
  • Answer the questions in any order you want
  • Each part of a question is graded separately, so answer parts (b) and (c) even if you don’t know how to do part (a)
  • No penalty for wrong answers, so write something in response to every question even if it is just a guess; you may get partial credit even if your answer is only somewhat correct
  • All code must be written in Java
  • Write neatly; indent your code; keep it simple; make it easy for the reader to determine that your code is correct
