Wo lagen Deiner Meinung nach besondere Schwierigkeiten der Klausur?: 
They asked questions about the exercises and lectures in the same unstructured way as the lecture itself is: a little bit of this and a little bit of that ... "and see, oh, here is another topic, let's ask a random question about that before coming back to the first topic again."

Hast du noch andere Tipps?: 
Stufe der Prüfung: 
"What functions does an ERP system have?" <- easy
"Name some attributes of interfaces?" <- I still don't know, what attributes for interfaces are.
"What are challenges when you do a release change?"
"When do you need standards?" <- you can say anything and no matter what you say, it's not the right answer.
"Why is documentation during release changes important?" <- easy
"For what things do you need fallback scenarios?" <- impossible to answer properly without context, so I was in trouble here
"How many years runs an ERP system?" <- easy
"Why is training during a release change important?" <- few things easy to name, but they wanted to hear a lot more about it
... more questions ...
They asked i.e. to name some risk categories, but not in a certain context of a task. Just any risks, so I named a few and they seemed not satisfied. So they asked me to put it in a context of an example. But then again I was free to choose what example to take. So I took one out of the lecture, because we all were familiar with it. But then again they didn't seem to be happy with an example from the lecture and invented a new example case and wanted me to name some risks for this special case. Things like that happened over and over again until they started to say sentences where one word was missing and I had to think of the missing word in that sentence i.e. "In project management there is cost, time and X". And I had to say what they mean with X. I didn't know what they want here, because there are so many things which could be X. And then they said it's "quality" and then I realised they meant this special project management triangle. But if you have only this one sentence, then you don't know that they want to hear something about the project management triangle. That was also one of the few things not covered in this lecture (I only know it from other lectures).
