UIL Computer Science 'The Next 25' - View Inside!
This guide is written for students preparing to take the Texas UIL Computer Science written exam. The first fifteen questions of each UIL Computer Science written exam are purposely more basic (easier) than the remaining twenty-five questions. The Hexco guide titled "UIL Computer Science – The First 15" covers the topics that make up the first fifteen questions on the test. This guide, however, is intended to show you how to correctly answer questions 16 through 40. UIL provides a list of topics to be covered by the written exam at http://www.uiltexas.org/files/academics/UILCS-JavaTopicList1516.pdf. Within that document can be found a list of topics used to create the written exam. Those topics will serve as the content for the chapters of this guide.
A few words about what this guide is NOT are appropriate at this time. This is a GUIDE, not a textbook. This guide is not a complete and exhaustive discussion of the topics presented. Reading and understanding this guide is NOT intended as a course in computer science. Using this guide along with enrollment in a good Computer Science course will enhance your success without a doubt. The more that you seek out and use alternative resources that are available; the more successful you will become. A great list of resources is available at http://www.uiltexas.org/academics/computer-science/resources.
Success in the UIL Computer Science competition requires a great deal of hard work and dedication! To be successful, you will have to practice A LOT! To be successful, you and your teammates will have to memorize A LOT! But, if you will read and study this guide, memorize what you are asked to memorize, practice often, and make use of all of the resources available to you, you can learn a lot of computer science and maybe win a few medals along the way.
