  • Exam Skeleton and Exam Tips

    Posted by Angela Finlayson Wednesday 21 June 2017, 10:29:47 PM.

    Exam Skeleton

    Have a look at the exam skeleton. Reading through the exam instructions before the exam and asking questions about them now will make the exam less stressful.

    Other tips:

    Remember you can copy and paste things such as input examples and/or submission commands from the exam instruction text by highlighting them with the left mouse button and using the middle button to paste to your terminal or editor etc.

    If you end up with an infinite loop and you can't stop it, minimise the window (to stop it distracting you) , right click and open up a new terminal and keep going from there.

    The exam states that passing the autotests does not guarantee full marks. This is true. However it is most likely a better use of time to get complete as many questions as you can and getting them to pass as many of the autotests as you can and then going back and writing your own tests if you have finished and have time.

  • Assignment 2 Marks and TotalLabMark

    Posted by Angela Finlayson Wednesday 14 June 2017, 02:03:16 PM.

    Please check your marks. If you have a TotalLabMark of ? then you need to contact your tutor as you have submitted labs that have not been marked yet. Do this ASAP.

    If your tutor has not marked your ass2 yet, please be patient, they should be ready soon.

    In the meantime you check the automarking by running the following in the same directory of the CWords.c file you submitted

    1911 autotest -a ~cs1911/public_html/17s1/assignments/ass2/tests

  • Revision Material

    Posted by Angela Finlayson Monday 12 June 2017, 04:41:09 PM.

    Hello everyone.

    The questions from the week 13 prac exam, their solutions and the week 13 lab solutions are all up under the week 13 lab section. Try to do the exercises BEFORE you look at the solutions.

    There are also a few more revision questions (with answers) in the revision code section in the lecture notes. The first we started in lectures involving files and strings and one we did not get to with structs

    removeQuestion.c

    rgbQuestion.c

    Other good revision is just to go over tutorial and lab questions, doing them as programming questions without looking at the answers first.

  • Week 13 lab

    Posted by Angela Finlayson Friday 26 May 2017, 02:17:00 PM.

    This has been released.

    The main part of the lab next involves a 1 hour practice prac exam (worth lab marks only). If you go to the week 13 lab specification, there are some revision exercises there if you wish to do them in advance of your lab as practice for the practice exam. They are not worth anything and you do can not submit them.

    There is also an advanced lab exercise involving malloc that you should do if you want an A for the lab.

  • Check your lab marks before your lab this week

    Posted by Angela Finlayson Sunday 21 May 2017, 05:27:47 PM, last modified Sunday 21 May 2017, 10:11:19 PM.

    and talk to your tutor in the lab if there are any issues. You should not have any labs with a '?'. This means you submitted the lab using give, but that it has no mark entered yet. A '.' means you did not submit it.

  • Assignment 2 Bonus Stage

    Posted by Angela Finlayson Friday 19 May 2017, 08:49:00 PM.

    I have set up submissions for the bonus stage. There are no autotests on submission, but I will run trial competition runs of all the submissions on the 31st and the 1st and give a link to the results, so if you submit by then you can get feedback on how your AI goes. The real competition l will be run soon after the assignment is due. So late submissions will not be accepted for this stage of the assignment.

    I have also added some information about signal handlers on the assignment 2 spec under the bonus stage section. You may or may not choose to use signal handlers in the bonus stage. But there is some information there in case you would like to.

  • 1921 does not exist anymore

    Posted by Angela Finlayson Friday 05 May 2017, 12:07:22 PM, last modified Saturday 06 May 2017, 11:28:41 AM.

    Hi everyone. I have had lots of students asking me about COMP1921. It does not exist anymore and you should COMP1521 instead. COMP1911 a pre-requisite for COMP1521, so you do not need to do the bridging course.

    If you are interested in doing the bridging course anyway, I will be emailing everyone after the result for COMP1911 have been finalised. You must do well enough in COMP1911 to be allowed to do it. I will give you more details about that soon.

    The bridging course will be running the week before session 2 begins.

  • Assignment 1 and tomorrow's lecture

    Posted by Angela Finlayson Tuesday 28 March 2017, 10:14:43 AM.

    Hello everyone. I have added a few more autotests to test a few of the illegal input cases I would expect your program for assignment 1 to be able to handle. The reference implementation has now been updated to reflect the error handling I would expect as well.

    We will discuss error checking with scanf and what kinds of error checking we want for assignment 1 in tomorrows lecture, along with finishing off 2d arrays and starting a new topic! Depending on how we go for time, we probably won't get up to doing much or any revision in the second hour.

  • Welcome to COMP1911

    Posted by Angela Finlayson Saturday 25 February 2017, 09:10:52 PM.

    Welcome to COMP1911!

    The COMP1911 website is at https://webcms3.cse.unsw.edu.au/COMP1911/17s1/ and you login using your zID and zPass .

    You've probably been told to access your course through UNSW's Moodle system, but most CSE courses don't use Moodle.

    Have a look around the website. We are still in the process of adding resources, but so far there is a Course Outline and Tutorials and Labs for the first week. Remember that Tutorials, Labs and Lectures all start in Week 1. Your first tutorial and lab will be a nice easy introduction to your friendly tutors, CSE and the labs. Check the timetable for the times and locations of your class.

    I look forward to seeing you on Monday at 11am for our first lecture , or for our web stream students, I will email you when the first lecture gets uploaded and let you know how to access it.
