Check the due date for each assignment and put a reminder in your agenda, calendar, and digital assistant.
Your Final Exam schedule is posted in the ICT office. The Final Exam is closed-book, no aids, no devices.
Your Final Exam covers the entire course, with slight emphasis on material since the second midterm test, and on material that students did not answer well in the previous two tests.
Your Final Exam includes questions from all practice tests, not just the most recent ones.
For full marks, you must read and understand the Test Instructions before the test for important directions on how to enter your answers and the test version number on the mark-sense forms.
There may be more questions on the test than you can answer in the time allowed; answer the ones you know, first.

Reminder that Assignments 12, 13, and 14 each contain at the start short descriptions of the command names you need to complete the assignment. This is in addition to having the names mentioned in the List of Commands You Should Know.
Reminder on searching the course notes: Recall that in a previous Assignment you were shown how to use
fgrep on the CLS to search for a string in all the course notes? Please do it.

If you are only doing a migration because you think it saves you money there’s always somebody who tells you afterwards that you didn’t calculate it properly. That was the experience of a lot of open source-based projects that have failed. They were only cost-driven and when the organisation got more money or somebody else said ‘The costs are wrong’ then the main reason for doing it had broken away. That was never the main goal within the City of Munich. Our main goal was to become independent.
Free software was ruled the better choice by Munich’s ruling body, principally because it would free the council from dependence on any one vendor and future-proof the council’s technology stack via open protocols, interfaces and data formats.
The project finished within budget in October 2013, with more than 14,800 staff migrated to using Linux and more than 15,000 to OpenOffice.
