Oral Exam Questions for Graduating Masters Students
For CSCI masters students whose catalog is 2001-2002 or later, graduation requirements include a short oral exam over the core and concentration-specific courses. The policy developed by the department's graduate committee states that sample questions for the exam will be made available to students; links to those questions are below. Note that these questions ARE NOT NECESSARILY the questions that you'll be asked. They are old questions that have been asked previously. Direct inquires to Dr. Barrett, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The best way to study for this exam is to review the notes from each course, look at exams and assignments from the courses, and, if necessary, discuss concepts with the courses' instructors. This is not a detailed, comprehensive exam (it only takes about 20 - 30 minutes), but you will be expected to be conversant (it's oral) with the major concepts (it's the exit exam) from each of the courses in the core and in your area.
