Spring 2016

Preparation for Final Quiz

While the final quiz is during finals week, it will only explicitly cover the second 1/2 of the course. Of course, the cumulative nature of this course means that terms and concepts from the first 1/2 will be used freely, but the questions will focus primarily on the material covered from Lecture 15 (reliability) onwards. We will not explicitly test net neutrality, Tor, Bitcoin, or Internet policy.

The quiz will focus on material covered in the notes, recitation papers, assigned textbook reading, lecture, and lecture notes. The quiz will be mostly multiple choice.

The quiz will be open book, open laptop, no network. That means you can bring along any printed, written or electronic materials that you think might be useful but you cannot use any network connection. Make sure you upload your papers to your laptop before the quiz. We monitor the network.

In the past 6.033 had 3 quizzes, and the final quiz covered only 1/3 of the term. Now it will cover some material that used to be on quiz 2, so below we list both old quizzes 2 and 3.

The size of the quiz (number of problems, etc.) will be comparable to Quiz 1. However, we will give you two hours to do it instead of 50 minutes.
