Sample Exam Solutions for Review

Re: Sample Exam Solutions for Review

Hi Greg,

 

The functionality looked good, no errors on a semi-cursory review.  Did not review the style and documentation too much.  The use of the template queued state machine template is nice.  Good to use if a person is alrady familiar with using this or any other "shipping" template.

Re: Sample Exam Solutions for Review

Thanks for the feedback Mark!

 

It's saving the balance changes to a different file I called "xxxx test.csv" as I was having trouble overwriting the contents with a blank array. I forgot to change it back after I'd fixed the bug! Once again, thanks for the advice.

 

Kind regards,

Alex

Re: Sample Exam Solutions for Review

Last one, Boiler this time, once again, 4 hour limit. Would love to get insight. Got a VI analyser warning of Cyclocmnatic complexity. It's functionally complete, but could have perhaps been done much better witha  simple state machine!


Test is tomorrow! Gulp!

Give him a "cursory" grade.   28-32  Yup right on the bubble. 

 

Now the real advice, again.

 

 

Run it through the vi analaizer.  yes, the graders will do that too...


Welcome to the club-----sit the exam. It will be hard but,...

Re: Sample Exam Solutions for Review

I haven't had a look at your code as I want to do mine without seeing a solution first, doing mine today.

 

All the best for your exam. I'm sure it will go well.

Re: Sample Exam Solutions for Review

Just to be clear.  The certification team does on occasion review a sample test posted on the forum.  The forum is for community members to provide positive reinforcement for each other and to ask questions of each other.  

 

Certification@ni.com is the right email to communicate directly with NI regarding a persons specific certification test.

 

So, sometimes we review some of the samples, with an informal functional review.  Generally speaking, it is to drive the message that demonstrated functionality is the key to the functional grade.

Re: Sample Exam Solutions for Review

I've attached my SECOND attempt at the CLA practice exam. As this is my second attempt, I limited myself to 3:10 in time. I assumed I'd lose ~50 minutes on the actual exam getting acclimated to the problem statement.

 

Review would be appreciated. The code is in 2012, using the natively supported Actor Framework (OOP). If you would like the exam in an older version, I can back-convert.

 

Thanks all.

Re: Sample Exam Solutions for Review

Hello Mike
Could you convert your project to Labview 2011 version.
I am preparing for CLA and and would like to see your solution.

Re: Sample Exam Solutions for Review

Back-converted to 2011. You MUST have Actor Framework installed; it is not native to 2011 and the project will not load properly without it.
