Ap0005: Preface to OOP Self-Assessment

Module by: R.G. (Dick) Baldwin. E-mail the author

Summary: This module serves as the Preface to group of modules titled OOP Self-Assessment

Note: You are viewing an old style version of this document. The new style version is available here.


Welcome to my group of modules titled OOP Self-Assessment .

This is a self-assessment test designed to help you determine how much you know about object-oriented programming (OOP) using Java.

In addition to being a self-assessment test, it is also a major learning tool. Each module consists of about ten to twenty questions with answers and explanations on two or three specific topics. In many cases, the explanations are extensive. You may find those explanations to be very educational in your journey towards understanding OOP using Java.

To give you some idea of the scope of this self-assessment test, when you can successfully answer most of the questions in modules Ap0010 through Ap0140 , your level of knowledge will be roughly equivalent to that of a student who has successfully completed an AP Computer Science course in a U.S. high school up to but not including data structures. This is based on my interpretation of the College Board's Computer Science A Course Description .


This section contains a variety of miscellaneous information.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
