For students wanting to gauge their programming skills with a view to entering at second or third year.

Background

For many programmes it is important that you have the ability to build programs in Java. This section shows you the kinds of skills that are taught in first and second year. You can follow the tutorials and take the tests.

Graphics

The first programming exercise involves drawing images using the Java Graphics2D. We don't expect you to know all of the classes and methods; so don't worry if you have never heard of the methods fillRect or drawLine, what is important is that you can use these methods after you have seen some examples.

Algorithms

You should be able to develop algorithms to solve problems. Most of these examples use arrays and loops.
