15213/18213: Introduction to Computer Systems
 There are two online exams: a midterm and a final.
 All exams are closed book, closed notes.
 However, you may bring one (1) doublesided 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of notes,
which can be handwritten or machineprinted, to the midterm, and 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.
Midterm Exam  June 26th
