Dec 12, 2011: Important: First Day of Class

6.033 begins on Tuesday February 7th with a recitation. You should ignore the recitation room and time assigned to you by the registrar. Note that not all of the recitation rooms listed by the registrar will be offered, but all timeslots will be available. Please consult this list of available recitations and go to one of them on Tuesday, February 7th (the first day of classes). During recitation, you will be given recitation preference sheets on which you can list your recitation and tutorial preferences. By 10pm on Wednesday February 8th, we will assign a binding list of recitation assignments for the rest of the term, and post them to this page.

Dec 12, 2011: Textbook

6.033 will be using Saltzer and Kaashoek's Principles of Computer System Design: An Introduction (Morgan Kaufmann 2009); the readings are required. You can get a copy at the MIT Coop.
