The lecture is accompanied by a practical seminar.
The exam consists of an exam test and an oral exam. Details on the form and extent of the exam are specified here. An example of an exam test is here. A prerequisite for the exam is the credit from the seminar. Exam dates will be available in SIS.
Previous exam tests: 4.2.
