MIS3501.002 – Reminders and an agenda for Thursday 3/29

In class on 3/29 I will go over the exam 2 study guide and take questions.  I will also review the last challenge solution, with an emphasis on the code that generates unordered lists, select options, and HTML tables.

With regard to the ITA-lead exam prep sessions, they are as follows:

  • Thursday 3/29 – 1pm to 3pm.  in SP200.  Students must bring their own laptops if they want to attend this session.
  • Friday 3/30 – 3:30pm to 5:30 pm in A603.  Held in A603 in the mobile computing lab… across the hall from A602 where we normally meet.

These are working sessions, so come prepared to work on an exam prep exercise.

You should have already received communication from Rebecca Jackson regarding this.  So, if you have more questions about the ITA-lead study sessions, please check your email for Rebecca’s message.
