Hi there! Here is my experience of taking distributed systems course. Sorry about typing only English because I cannot type Chinese!. From 1point 3acres bbs

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.

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.

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.

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?.鏈枃鍘熷垱鑷1point3acres璁哄潧
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). 1point 3acres 璁哄潧

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?. 鐣欏鐢宠璁哄潧-涓浜╀笁鍒嗗湴
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. . From 1point 3acres bbs

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....鐣欏璁哄潧-涓浜-涓夊垎鍦

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?
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?. 1point3acres.com/bbs
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
