OK, tomorrow’s the exam. I studied a little yesterday—which means Googling around for information. The subject is Internet Theory & Applications, which is just a fancy name for saying ‘everything remotely related to the web’. The syllabus includes everything to web technology theory to HTML to ASP/JSP. But the questions asked in the exam are simple—they can’t humanly expect people to know the in–depth details of everything in six months.
I’ve not even bought a text–book for this one, because frankly that’d be a waste of money. Here’s what I do:
- Keep Firefox open.
- Lookup what topics are there in the syllabus.
- Enter define:[topic name] in the Google search box. For example, define:WWW
- Lookup the same at Wikipedia. I conveniently get a link to the Wikipedia article for nearly every definition search.
OK, for some of the others, I do Google around a bit more intelligently. But this works for most.
