6.033 - Computer System Engineering Handout 27 - May 5, 1998

Quiz 3 Practice Quizzes

Here are questions from some of the previous years' quizzes (1997, 1996, 1995, and 1994). Solutions to these questions will be handed out on Tuesday, May 12.

Quiz 3 will take place on Wednesday, May 13 from 2 to 3 PM. Since this is a normal class hour, you shouldn't have a class conflict; but if for some reason you do, e-mail kaashoek@mit.edu as soon as possible. The locations for the quiz will be announced later.

Quiz 3 covers all the material from Lecture 17 (April 8) through Recitation 24 ( May 7). The topics covered include fault tolerance and performance. (You may want to refer to the 6.033-At-A-Glance handout for a high-level topic review, or look over the lecture notes.) Of course, since the class is all about systems, there may be some interaction with previous topics, seeing as this material builds on topics studied earlier. Just as before, the quiz is open book and open notes.
