Information on all A+ Computer Science Contest Preparation Materials has been recently updated. You can get information on new materials by visiting the A+ Contest Materials page. Java 7 topics will be a bigger focus this year.
The official UIL Computer Science written test and packet writer will be writing tests and packets again this year for A+ Computer Science. The tests and packets will reflect the current test and packet style used by UIL Computer Science. The content will also be similar, including the 5 open ended non-language specific questions at the end of each test.
