Preparation for Quiz 2
Quiz 2 will last 50 minutes. The quiz will cover
material from lecture 9 through lecture 18 (inclusive). 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. You may also bring a laptop to view PDF versions
of papers, but you may not connect to any network.
6.033 quizzes typically begin with half a dozen or so
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 assigned
from LEC 9 through LEC 18 may show up on the quiz.
You can find old quiz questions to practice on in the Problem Sets
section of the class notes. Although there has been a little
rearrangement of material over the years, you should be able to
answer most questions relevant to the subjects we have
