CIS 458 Midterm Guide


The midterm will contain approximately 8 questions. Some may have multiple parts. All questions will be short answer. For short answer questions, I am expecting approximately 1 paragraph (several sentences) in response. Answers that are just a couple words will generally not recieve full credit.

You will be allowed to bring and use a single (1-sided) page of notes. This may be no larger than a standard letter sized piece of paper. This page must be produced by you (you can not share a page of notes someone else has written), and will be collected at the end of the exam.


Any topic covered in lecture/discussion, lab, or the assigned reading is valid material for the exam. The topic list below is not guaranteed to be comprehensive.
