Computer Networks (summer 2013)

Basic information

Temporarily, refer to Marcin Bieńkowski's page on Computer Networks in polish and in english, for extra information.

Hint: People of little or no Linux command line experience are strongly suggested to study The Linux Command Line guide. Chapters 1-11 are going to be useful and amongst them 7 is essential. Consider "Computer Networks" course to be a great opportunity to acquire (some) Linux skills that are likely to influence your industry career.

The grade will be based on ratio of obtained points to the sum of all points possible to acquire (~100). It is derived from following formula:

Ex * 0.3 + Prog * 0.3 + Lab * 0.4

where ExProg and Lab are percentage of points obtained from exercises, programming assignments and laboratories, correspondingly.

Note, that you must get at least 5 points for each of previously mentioned types of classes.
