Well it's definitely October a.k.a. Midterm season. With that comes the CS 313E Exam 1!
So from last week's post I mentioned that I generally mark pieces of my notes that I personally think would be wonderful target areas while studying for our first CS 313E exam. Yesterday Professor Downing posted the exam review on Piazza and many of the topics and bits of code that I marked as important were on the review as well!
In the review, as well as in class, Professor Downing stressed that a very effective study strategy involves testing yourself and writing lots of code. Continuing with the collaborative theme of the class, it's crucial to be a part of a study group. I definitely agree that self- and group-quizzing are extremely effective study strategies. I've been strengthening my Python skills by reviewing the methods we learned in class and actually running them on my own. I'm really looking forward to getting quizzed by my classmates. When you work and study with other people, your learning process is much more well-rounded than it would be with individual efforts.
*Sidenote*: I find it interesting that our exam is an evening exam! I really appreciate the extra 30 minutes we get though.
Good luck to all of my classmates! I'll be back next week with a report on how the exam went.
See y'all then! :)
