@hehe876 @sarahka7 do you think the multiple choice on the 230 final will require work on the side (like decoding instructions, floating point format, etc), or that it will be relatively straight-forward like the other exams?

The 360 final was pretty straightforward- mostly previous exam questions- so hoping 230 will be similar. Im reviewing the last 3 exams and exercises/assignments just in case .

Yeah I'm now realizing the disadvantage of arguing for points back on exams: she never gives the exam back...
At least I've git the keys though. I did well enough on the first 2. And I did so poorly on the third that I didn't bother arguing for anything back, so I still have that one

Same here- never got my exam 2 back when i asked for adjustment :/ but yeah at least there are keys. Tomorrow i have 230 and linear algebra finals. Double whammy. Will be happy when those r done. Not as stressed over 380 at least.

Good luck! I'm not looking forward to 380
I think I'll do better than the first 2 exams, but I need like a 95 to get the grade I want

A few if I can remember them
what floating point operation is not supported by MIPS? I put immediate addressing
And I was totally lost on the virtual memory stuff
basically made an educated guess
And for the direct cache we had to draw, the tags were the same as the block addresses, right?

Totally on the same boat with you regarding the virtual adress lol. Tag is ceiling(block_adress/block_number) if I recall correctly
