CS360 Midterm Exam 1 -- February 16, 2016

James S. Plank



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 exam.
