Hi there! Here is my experience of taking distributed systems course. Sorry about typing only English because I cannot type Chinese!

I am ms in cs student.

1)你在国内上过这门课程以及要求的prerequisite courses吗?在国内的时候,学的很烂,还是自己觉得还不错?
I have not taken this course before as there is no such course when I was undergrad in my previous university. . 鐗涗汉浜戦泦,涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴

2)从这个问题开始,均针对美国上课。你是在美国的第几个学期上这门课的?你觉得这门课程难度如何?比你想象的难还是容易?难在哪里?或者为毛你觉得很简单?
This is my first year in USA and I think the course is overloading for me. Course workload is quiet heavy. It's really hard to solve the MP(machine problem). I took about 2 weeks to finish 1 MP. For example, I code P2P interface with heartbeat fault-tolerant or Key-value store system like Cassandra.. 涓浜-涓夊垎-鍦帮紝鐙鍙戝竷

3)上课做了哪些project或者大作业?能大体说一下情况都是做的啥吗?
2 MPs for distributed systems like fault-tolerant or Key-value store using C/C++. TAs will offer you a bash file to check whether your code satisfy the requirement or not.. 鐗涗汉浜戦泦,涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴

4)哪个project或者大作业你印象最深刻?你是咋做出来的、或者是如何栽倒的?有啥经验感受想说出来?
1 MP for fault-tolerant using C. It's really hard to read TAs code. There are about 10+ .c file and .h file. but I can only change 1 file to program to satisfy the requirement.

5)你班里大约有多少人同时上这个课程?有几个TA/Grader帮忙?你觉得你在需要的时候,得到了帮助吗?
There are about 150+ students taking this course. Some of them are undergrad. 4 TAs offer office hours at different time during a week. TAs are helpful but it depends on how you understand the content(1 TA from India, 2 TAs from China, 1 TAs I don't know where she is from)

6)你了解班里的分数分布吗?中国学生一般成绩如何,或者做project、大作业情况如何,你了解吗?
Midterm avg is about 70. Chinese students are near average. Some of them are above the average and some of them are below the average.

7)期中或者期末考试是闭卷还是开卷?难度大吗?临时抱佛脚突击有用吗?
Midterm is close book but Final can have a cheat sheet. Most of content is out of course and need to proof. Prepare early is the best way to get high score...

8)如果你有机会可以重上这门课程,你在什么方面会做的不同?. 鐗涗汉浜戦泦,涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴
UIUC offers recording of the courses. As a result of that, I might watch the recording right after class end.

9)你觉得这门课程有用吗?学到了什么东西?. visit 1point3acres.com for more.
It's very helpful. Learn a lot about "cloud computing". E.g. Hadoop, Cassandra, Hbase, Fault-tolerant, ....

10)介意说一下你是哪个学校什么专业的吗?介意说一下老师的名字吗?
UIUC MCS, Professor Indy
