1 Readings, Assignments, Labs, Tests, and ToDo

1.1 Read (at least) these things (All The Words)

  1. Week 06 Notes HTML – this file – Read All The Words
  2. Start-Up Files
  3. Shell Variables
  4. Linux and Sysadmin News in the World
  5. List of Commands You Should Know – keep a notebook!
  6. Video Tutorials on Lynda.com – tagged by week number

1.2 Assignments this week

Check the due date for each assignment and put a reminder in your agenda, calendar, and digital assistant.

1.2.1 Worksheets

Form a small study group to do the worksheets. Each person tries the example given, and you make sure you all get the same answers. Worksheets teach you how commands work. Worksheets are not for hand-in; they are not worth marks.

The worksheets are available in four formats: Open Office (ODT), PDF, HTML, and Text. Only the Open Office format allows you “fill in the blanks” in the worksheet. The PDF format looks good but doesn’t allow you to type into the blanks in the worksheet. The HTML format is crude but useful for quick for viewing online.

Do NOT open the ODT files using any Microsoft products; they will mangle the format and mis-number the questions. Use the free Libre Office or Open Office programs to open these ODT documents. On campus, you can download Libre Office here.

1.3 Lab work this week

1.4 Upcoming tests

Read the Test Instructions (all the words) before all your tests and exams.

Midterm tests take place in class during your usual one-hour lecture hour, not in your lab period. The Final Exam is in the room noted above.

1.4.1 Quizzes: Midterm #1 Quiz

This first quiz is one of several quizzes in this course. See a previous week for the details.
