The idea of advising OH is to give you a place to seek advice for things ranging from success in 61A to involvement in various activities at UC Berkeley and beyond. Some examples of questions you're welcome to discuss include: how to do well in 61A, in CS, at UC Berkeley, in life; how to get involved in teaching, research, clubs, side projects; how to maximize your college experience; etc.
These appointments are for advising questions only. If you book an appointment for a content-related question (questions about particular assignments, conceptual questions, or help debugging, for example), your appointment is likely to be dropped.
You can book an appointment with any of the following course staff, based on availability and what you'd like to discuss (click on the "book appointment" link to visit each staff's appointment page).
In your appointment, please specify what you would like to discuss, so that we can be prepared to help you in the best way possible :)
