So. October’s here and the DD303 exam is looming ever closer. I’ve now managed a complete circuit of the chapters I said I was going to revise, including the ones I’m intending to use as backup material. I feel ok, but I’m aware that I need to do rather more work over the remaining 15 days or so before the exam to get myself to the point where I stand a reasonable chance of getting the grade I want.
As part of the process, I’ve been revisiting my notes, correcting them and adding in links to other material as well as trying to answer past exam questions either by writing out essays (not very good at that still and my handwriting is bordering on illegible) or making essay plans (I’ve managed a few more of those, but still illegible).
Though these are unlikely to be my final versions of my notes, I’ve included links to my ‘version 2’ documents below (plus a new one pager on ACT-R), just in case they’re of use to anyone out there.
I’ve also decided to have a quick look at the memory chapters again tonight (glass of wine in hand, hic!) just to see if they stick any better than say, attention, which I’ve been struggling with somewhat. I don’t want to change horses at this stage, but I guess even if I don’t, I may find some material that could help with (perhaps) the cognitive architecture chapter.
Update 04/10/2010: Nope – the memory chapters won’t stick at all for me. Back to plan A!
