Exam 2 will be held 10:10-11:30am on May 8th. It will be an 80-minutes, in-class exam. You can use last year's exam (solutions) as a practice exercise. You should be able to answer all the questions except Question 3(a), on source-based versus shared multicast trees, which we didn't cover this year.
Students who signed up for options 2 and 3 of the course project have their project deliverables due on May 1.
Solutions to last year's exam is posted here.
2. Two new email aliases have been set up:
0. Use the top navigational buttons to access the schedule (with links to lecture slides and reading assignments), assignment details and other course-related information.
1. The first class meeting is scheduled for Monday January 23, 10am-1pm, in South Hall Room 202.
2. The required textbook for this course is: Douglas Comer, Computer Networks and Internets, 4th Edition. It is available from the campus bookstore.
3. Subscribe to the is250 mailing list by sending email to email@example.com and include "subscribe is250" as the first line of your message. (You can leave the subject line blank.) If you are a SIMS student, you can also do so via my.sims. The mailing list will be used for dissemination of course-related announcements, as well as for unmoderated discussions on course-related topics.
4. IS250 is a MOT elective course. I received the following message last year regarding MOT requirements, and I assume it is still true this year. Please contact Susan if you have any questions.
From: Susan Reneau, Student Affairs Officer of the MOT (Management of
Haas office (new): F477, 643-1398
Engineering office: 230 Bechtel, 642-8790
1) Students taking a class towards the MOT certificate, must take it for a grade, not pass/fail.
2) They must receive a B or above.
3) All students going for the MOT certificate should refer to the MOT website (mot.berkeley.edu). It has detailed information about the certificate and the classes.
Also, since this course is cross-listed in three schools (SIMS, Haas, Engineering), students should make sure that they are not registered using another college's CCN, even though Telebears will allow it. This can cause double registration and much hassle.
