Only two quizzes and one exam left for CS 313e! It's been a great learning experience thus far and I'm looking forward to this week! Project 5 went well and I had another great pair programming experience. I'm proud to say that each of my four pair programming experiences this semester have been positive!
Much of our end-of-semester energy has been focused on exploring various sorting algorithms. We've discussed Bubble Sort, Selection Sort, Insertion Sort, and Merge Sort. According to our class schedule, the Merge Sort lecture was the last lecture of the semester. I'm assuming Monday's and Wednesday's classes will be reviews for the exam on Thursday. Regarding the exam, throughout the latter part of the course I've been jotting down notes with Professor Downing gives us hints as to what we should expect on Exam 2. I've also been marking parts of my notes that I think will be highlighted on the exam. I'm planning to gather each of the topics into one comprehensive list and use that list to guide my exam note sheet. Also, I'm really looking forward to working with some of my classmates as we prepare for the exam. I love the idea of creating practice tests and swapping them. Many times a classmate will remember a specific detail or concept that ends up appearing on the exam. The act of swapping practices tests or even reviewing exam note sheets with others helps to expand my grasp of all of the class concepts.
Thanks for reading. I hope you all have a wonderful week! For my UT classmates, hang in there --> FIVE. MORE. DAYS. :)
