No. This doesn't reflect anything on the split of theory to coding. I also wouldn't 
recommend you disregard committing to memory parts of the course. All you should infer from 
this is that it is not enough to *only* commit these things to memory. The exam will also 
interrogate your understanding of these principles.

And to clarify, the exam is *not* open book. I just attempted to write it in such a way that 
having an open book wouldn't be a significant advantage.
