Literature and preparations

Specific prerequisites

Completed course in programming corresponding to DD1310/DD1311/DD1312/DD1314/DD1315/DD1316/DD1318/DD1331/DD1337/DD100N/ID1018 and computer science corresponding to DD1320/DD1321/DD1325/DD1327/DD1338/DD2325/ID1020.

Active participation in a course offering where the final examination is not yet reported in LADOK is considered equivalent to completion of the course.

Registering for a course is counted as active participation.

The term 'final examination' encompasses both the regular examination and the first re-examination.

Recommended prerequisites

Basic computer science knowledge equivalent to DD1320, DD1321, DD1325, DD1327, DD1338, DD2325 or ID1020.

Programming knowledge equivalent to DD100N, DD1310, DD1312, DD1315, DD1318, DD1331 or DD1337.
