We’re getting to the end of the content for this course. Now the hard part begins, where I try to both give students practical programming experiences and prepare them for the AP test. The countdown timer on my teacher web site says “The AP Computer Science test is May 5, 2009 — that’s 1 month and 16 days from right now.” Lots to do in the next six weeks. But I’ll bet that I’m more excited for spring break than any of my students.
