Comment: I just found out to my surprise the computer available during the competition will be a Mac, PC’s are more common than Mac’s. I’m assuming then the hardware questions will be general to the point that the architecture either Mac or PC is not going to be relevant? I’m not familiar with the Mac’s internal architecture, I’m teaching front bus and northbridge – southbridge… Thanks
Response: (iCompute 2,3) The Basic Computing section for 2nd and 3rd grade will look at hardware and operating systems more generally and will not contain questions that are operating system specific.
Response: (iCompute 4,5) Section A questions are drawn from the primary resources (highlighted in red) on my website. These may refer to any operating system. Section A questions are drawn from the primary resources (highlighted in red) on my website. These may refer to any operating system.
