make that time, then come 9:30-12:30p to 145 Dwinelle. The time limit is
3 hours (ignore the jibberish I mentioned in class). Here is the
restriction we're making: If you go to the first time slot, you must stay

time. There are no complaints allowed for the final (but we will grade it

Midterm 1 Complaint Deadline
The complaint deadline for midterm 1 is next Tuesday, July 22nd. Look over
your midterms and the solutions this weekend and make sure nothing is wrong.
Give it to your TA if you have a complaint (tell them what the complaint is),
and they will regrade the entire test.

Midterm 1 will be held on Monday, 7/14, in 145 Dwinelle, from 7-9p.
Be sure to meet up with your group beforehand. The midterm is open book,
open reader, open notes, no computing devices! The midterm covers all
topics up to (and including) week 3A (tree recursion). Note that in
the sample midterms in the big reader, you will need to look at some
questions from midterm 2 as well!
The TAs are holding a review session on Sunday 2-5p in 306 Soda.
Finally, HW6 will be bumped a day, so it will be due Tuesday at 11am.
Typos in Reader
There are some typos in the reader! Basically, all the .10 's were
replaced with .9 's... Sorry about this! So, make corrections in
the following places:
If you already did 2.9, that's fine, I'll write up solutions for that
as well, but please make the changes later.
- 2B : change 2.9 to 2.10
- 4B : change 3.9 to 3.10
- 6B : change 4.9 to 4.10
Homework Due Dates
The due dates for homework are now Thursday and Monday. That is,
hw3 (week 2A) is due this Thursday (along with proj1), and hw4
(week 2B) is due this coming Monday. The same will be true for
future homeworks as well.
Go to discussion this Tuesday (7/1), where you will be put into groups
of three or four. This will be your group for discussion and for
midterms. Midterms will have a group portion, a set of problems where
you will work with your group to solve.
CSUA UNIX Help Sessions
CSUA is holding three help sessions for UNIX:
They will cover how to manipulate files and folders in the terminal
and other useful UNIX commands.
- 4-5p, 310 Soda
- 5-6p, 310 Soda
- 6-7p, 310 Soda
We have provided guides on how to use the UNIX systems in lab,
available in html and pdf. We've also provided a guide to
homework submission and the class newsgroup, also available in html and pdf.
There are also guides to connecting from home using a Mac or a Windows PC.
NOTE: The server in 271 Soda labs is nova.cs.berkeley.edu
NOTE For Windows Users: It doesn't let you download SSH SecureShell anymore. Here are instructions for how to get PuTTy working with X11 Forwarding (graphics):
Also, you might find it helpful to get a file transfer utility to transfer files to and from the server. WinSCP is a nice client, which you can get here .
- Install Exceed (can find it here. If you can't download it, come by to office hours)
- In PuTTy, go to
and check the box that says "Enable X11 forwarding"
- Go back to "Sessions" (tab on the left) and type the server
in the box labeled "Host name".
- SAVE the session
so that you don't have to do this again. To save a session, type
a name in the text box labeled "Saved Sessions" and click "Save".
- Double-click the session name to log in.
