- Algorithm TracesYour ability to read code is directly related to your ability to trace through algorithms figuring out what process is occurring. If you can trace algorithms you will be able to debug and maintain code regardless of its authorship.In the exams you will expected to trace simple algorithms quickly and accurately. There are a number of traces here of varying complexity with answers (if available).The time taken is based on time available for the unit/exam and maximum number of mark available. In the case of coursework this would include preparation time.
