IMPORTANT NOTE

It is  important to know that  sample projects can be very helpful as long as you are aware of any mistakes or errors that  might have been made .

These are very good projects in general .Yet,  these are still students projects and no body is perfect .It is your responsibility to apply the correct techniques carefully , completely and precisely.

 Use these sample projects as extra help NOT as a TEXT BOOK or as your  only reference. Follow these projects in areas they have done well in (the selected sample items in the table  can help you pinpoint these ) .

This means that you have to verify before you follow and apply ,You need to make sure that your deliverables are inline with reliable software engineering resources [including our live classes , previous courses , text books and other good references ] .

I included here a number of good projects from several areas to address the diversity of your projects .However , every project has its own uniqeness as well as weakness . Please don't take a single project from start to end AS-IS.  This is why I included the table of carefully selected sample items that have achived high scores .

If you followed one single sample projects from A to Z without extra care and verification , there is a high likelihood that you might repeat some errors and mistakes and receive a low score as a result  .

Reliable resources should enable you to check for correctness . If you still need help please contact me . Project managers can always call me for quick and urgent issues (on my cell phone).
