    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a very well structured course. It is very time demanding and can be very hard, but the material is very interesting and made more intriguing through the labs. If you can put the time into this course I highly recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    My highlights of this course were the labs. They were super interesting and well put into context to be more compelling to the students. And meanwhile the labs is where the majority of my learning happened.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students considering this course is to make sure you can make the time commitment to this course. It is a time demanding course, but an amazing course if you can put the time into it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I think this course is very good to understand the fundamentals of computer systems and hence to build a basis for future courses like computer architecture or Operating systems. The assignments are regress and make you think. I would have preferred had it also covered IPC in more detail. Overall I'd recommend every undergrad to take this course and to graduate students who have the slightest bit of interest in understanding systems

    Course highlights:

    The assignments were exciting and difficult. The concepts that were taught gave me a lot of clarity regarding data storage in systems

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take it, you can take one more heavy course with this one but the third one should be light
