Hello all,

I am taking a course in C++ and in Ada.

Our professor has given us the choice to be tested in language profficiency in either C++ or Ada.

The test format will be of simpler programming problems and more geared towards shortanswer concepts.

I was wondering if anyone had a good introductory C++ or Ada tutorial that they highly recommend. (I have already googled some, but find they are either far to advanced or far too simple)

Also, do you have any practice tests/exams that I could have?

Thanks in advance!

As for practice problems, there is a section …

Any good exams/tests that deal with concepts (i.e. answers are written rather than programmed) ... short answer format?

Perhaps give this a shot:

I got both of those from doing a google search, so if you're looking for more pages similar to those above, your best bet would probably be to do a google search.
