Hi there! Here is my experience of taking distributed systems course. Sorry about typing only English because I cannot type Chinese!. 鍥磋鎴戜滑@1point 3 acres
. 鍥磋鎴戜滑@1point 3 acres
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.

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.
. From 1point 3acres bbs
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.

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.-google 1point3acres

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)

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.

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...

UIUC offers recording of the courses. As a result of that, I might watch the recording right after class end.. 鍥磋鎴戜滑@1point 3 acres

9)你觉得这门课程有用吗?学到了什么东西?. 涓浜-涓夊垎-鍦帮紝鐙鍙戝竷
It's very helpful. Learn a lot about "cloud computing". E.g. Hadoop, Cassandra, Hbase, Fault-tolerant, ....
