CS360 Midterm Exam 1 -- February 16, 2016
This was a very hard exam. Once again, I apologize for your stress, but I believe strongly
that a true understanding of computer systems requires that you know the bits, bytes and pointers
and how they interrelate. This exam tests that, and although it was long and detailed, I believe
it fairly tested you. I have given lots of
partial credit, and have scaled the grades to account for the exam's length.
In general, I thought you did well on this challenging
- A+: Above 61 - Fantastic job!
- A: 52 to 51
- B: 40 to 52
- C: 30 to 40
- D: 25 to 30
- F: Below 25
