CS 450/550 -- Fall Quarter 2023

Test #1 Review

This page was last updated: October 23, 2023

Test #1 will be taken using the Canvas Quiz mechanism. It will consist of ~40 multiple choice questions to be done in 60 minutes. It will be Open Notes.

Warning! "Open Notes" is not the same as "I don't need to study for it"! You will run out of time if you have to lookup in the notes every one of the questions. You don't need to memorize everything, but you should know where ceratin topics can be looked up.

Test Date and Time Range:

Test #1 will be taken on Canvas in a 60-minute interval of your own choosing during November 1-5. It will open at 12:01 PM on Wednesday November 1 and will close at 11:59 PM on Sunday, November 5. The test will be open notes.

Once it opens, we (me and the TAs) have to stop answering test-ish questions during Zoom Office Hours. For all we know, someone is sitting there with the test open and is asking us questions from it. We will, however, continue to answer project questions.

Test rules:

Clearly I cannot enforce the Closed Friends. I am counting on your honesty. I would refer you to the Code of Student Conduct.
Also, you should know that, while there is a lot of good information on the Internet, there is a lot of bad information too, or information explained in a different way. This test has been written with respect to our class notes. Complaints about a missed test answer because "that's not what something000something.com says" will be ignored.

The test can potentially cover any of the following topics:
