CS 241 Midterm Exam Information - Winter 2019

Below is a list of useful information you should know about the CS241 midterm exam.

1. The Prime Directive

In general we don't answer questions like "Do we need to know about XYZ for the midterm?" or "Do I have to memorize ABC?" You must use your judgment in deciding what to study. I will say, however, that the midterm focus is less on memorizing and more on understanding and applying the concepts you learn in the course.

2. Coverage

The midterm covers everything from the beginning of the course up to (and including) top-down parsing (LL(1)).

3. When and Where

The exam is on Wednesday, March 6th, 2019 from 4:30pm to 6:20pm in the MC building. It is 1 hour and 50 minutes long.
