Parallel Processing

by on Nov.22, 2005, under NTU

This course has brought new insights into the world of programming. Ways to improve algo and how to do things more efficiently. I like this course.

Today’s exam paper generally follows the past year paper’s format. Only the OpenMP is new. OpenMP, which I have speculated not to be examined came out today. I have not read on it after the quiz a few weeks ago. So I am not prepared for it.

The first 2 questions was not too tough. Exam stress has made me underperformed. I sudddenly forget about the binary search, which I know so well. I did a sequential search instead and thought that I have baged the 9 marks allocated for this question. It was only after discussion with my friends that revealed my silly mistake. I am disappointed with myself for the losing of marks here.

I am very unsure of the last question. Hopefully I can get some marks with my scribbles. Hope that I can get a B for this paper. Sigh, its always the same feeling after every paper. The feeling that I would be able to do better should I spend more time to seriously prepare for the exams……. Well, I deserve whatever I get for the effort I put in.
