Excel CA

There is a 15% Excel Test in Week 12 in the usual lab times and venues:

  • IT1-A , Thursday 12:00 in C128
  • IT1-B, Wednesday at 16:00 in C125

 I recommend that you come as early as possible and get your machine started up.

In the lab itself, I will hand you out a Test A or a Test B — and email you an Excel file that you can use as a template.

Here is the Sample Test including the Excel template.

Here is a scanned copy of the solutions and here is the Excel file used to support the solutions.

Labs 1 & 2 are here and here (data). The other lab is here.

This is an open book assessment — and any information which you can access on your workstation you are free to use — but you must not look at your neighbour’s work.

We will work on the normal distribution.

Week 13 — Revision

There is an exam paper at the back of your notes — I will go through this on the board in the lecture times in the normal rooms.

We will also have tutorial time in the tutorial slots. You can come to any or both tutorials. Again in the normal (computer lab) rooms.
