Sampson’s Notes, Flashcards, and other Academia Stuff from CS at UWaterloo

This post will be a mix of links to notes and flashcards, among other things. I’ll add new links to here periodically as I find and backdate through archives, or as I make new ones.

===== Flashcards =====

I find self / peer-quizzing with flash cards & doing sample exams to be the most effective ways to study. Memory retrieval exercises work much better than just reading material over and over (not much retention that way).

How to study the decks on QuizLet:

  1. Uncheck “Both Sides”
  2. Check “Term First”
  3. Click to flip the card
  4. Use left / right arrow keys to move between cards

Alternatively, you can download these study decks from QuizLet.com with iOS apps, just search for “CS 458 UWaterloo”, I found it helpful to quiz myself during commute / in between classes:
