6.033 - Computer System Engineering Quiz 1 - Friday, March 5, 2004

Quiz 1 is at 2:00 on Friday, March 5, 2004. The quiz will cover all the material up to and including the March 2 recitation (R8). The quiz will be open book. That means you can bring along any printed or written materials that you think might be useful. Calculators are allowed, though not necessary; cell phones, laptops, and PDAs are off limits. 6.033 quizzes typically begin with half a dozen independent questions that focus on material in the readings followed by one or two longer, multi-part questions that deal with concepts of computer systems covered in the notes and lecture. The quiz will be, at least in part, multiple choice.

Warning: the lectures touch on only a modest subset of the totality of 6.033 concepts. Anything in the class notes up through and including section A of chapter 4 may show up on the quiz.

The quiz will be held concurrently in two different rooms: 34-101 and 50-340. See the chart below to determine which location you should go to for the quiz.

You can find old quiz questions to practice on in the Problems and Solutions section following chapter 9 of the class notes. Be sure to check out both the independent problems and the problem sets that pertain to the current topics. Note that each problem in that section is followed by a code that tells what year it was given and which quiz it appeared on. Although there has been a little rearrangement of material over the years, you should be able to answer most questions that came from an old quiz 1.

The Problems and Solutions section of the notes does not include problems from the quizzes given in spring 2002 and spring 2003. You can find these quizzes, and their solutions, in the 6.033 web pages for 2002 (look at handouts 13-17) and 2003 (look at handouts 12, 13, and 15).

There will be a quiz review from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, Wednesday, March 3 in room 34-101. During this time the TAs will go over an outline of the covered subjects and explain a few questions from the Problems and Solutions section of the class notes.

The quiz date and time (2:00) was announced at the beginning of the term, so you should not have problems with scheduling conflicts. If, nevertheless, you have managed to create a conflict, contact Prof. Kaashoek () as soon as possible to resolve the problem. (Please cc: the head TA, Chris Lesniewski, at .)
