15213/18213: Introduction to Computer Systems
 There is one online exam: a final.
 All exams are closed book, closed notes.
 However, you may
bring two (2) doublesided 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of notes to the final.
 Your note sheet may not contain any preworked problems.
 You may also bring blank scratch paper, but you are not permitted
to use a calculator or any other electronic aid.
 There will be questions similar to previous exams, questions that
will test your understanding of the lab material, and new types of
questions.
Final Exam  August 12th
 The final will be delivered online in a single day in via proctored Zoom sessions.
 You are responsible for everything in Chapters 13 and Chapters
612 in your textbook. You can expect questions on topics such as,
but not limited to, floating point, assembly, stacks, caches, VM
address translation, process control, Unix I/O, concurrency, and
synchronization.
 To study, read each chapter and work in study groups to review slides,
review your own notes, work the practice problems in the book, and do problems from previous exams.
 You will be given three hours to complete the exam.
