  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.

23. Allows one change at a time

24. Creation of data as objects; for complex applications

25. The formal business process that ensures all changes made to a system receive formal review and approval from all stakeholders before implementation.

26. Memory management involves allocating memory to a process; reallocating it upon process completion; then re-allocating to a new process- can result in residual information
