The End of My First Semester – Part 1
Two days ago (Thursday, red) was my last day in this semester. At that day I had my last exam in computer networks course for this semester. For this semester I took five course (Computer Networks, Mobile Computing, Multimedia Wireless System and Thesis, Disertation Presentation and Tehcnical Writing), four is the principal course and the last one was Chinese course (exclude from my credits). But, in the middle of the semester I withdraw thesis, disertation presentation and technical writing.
This course taught basic concepts of computer networks. Prof Chen used Computer Networks 4th edition from Tanenbaum – Prentice Hall as text book. Actually that book is familiar to me, because i have already get computer networks in under graduate school with the same text book. But, at that time… i knew nothing at all. Came to the class, feel as sleep… and so on 😀 . All the chapter in this book tell the story of computer networks in basic network protocol. The chapter is arranged by the OSI reference model from lowest layer to the uppest layer. This course is really interesting for me, except the exam. I enjoy all the concept story and every mechanism in network protocol.
I think i will not get good mark for this course… i had only 65 in my midterm. Thats unfortunate for me… i missed another two problem at that midterm. Miss understanding about the problem and forget one notation for the formula… hiks, and for the final exam, i do not know yet… hope for better result.
