What is the CS61A wiki?

The CS61A wiki is a course wiki, written collaboratively by the students and course staff. A wiki is a special kind of website designed to make the sharing of knowledge easier.

The course staff each semester post numerous study guides and review materials on Piazza. This material becomes lost to students the next semester who do not have access to the old Piazza. The CS61A wiki was created to fix this problem by being a centralized source of information for CS61A material and by hosting links to review materials generated by dedicated TAs.

To search for a topic, enter it in the search box at the top right. See this for a list of articles. A list of guides is located at guides, and a list of practice problems is located at practice problems.
