How to save time in computer programming labs

Open as many terminals as you want to type programs and execute them in the separate terminals. Do not close the terminals until the examiner instructed to close.

Try to use the entire screen space by modifying the editor window size. It is better to fit at least two windows on the screen at a time, one for the program typing / modification and the other for the execution.

Use vi editor if you are very good at this, else use gedit for the same.

Learn typewriting skills to increase the typing speed. (At least 30 wpm is desired for the software programmer) From the day one starts practicing it.

How to solve Rubik's Cube

To solve the Rubik's Cube following two methods are handy.

Method - 1: Rotate up (C3U), Rotate right to left (L3R), Rotate down (C3D), Rotate left to right (L3L). It looks as shown in the below images.





Rotate up (C3U)

Rotate left (L3R)

Rotate down (C3D)

Rotate right (L3L)

Method - 2: Rotate up (C1U), Rotate left to right (L3L), Rotate down (C1D), Rotate right to the left (L3R).





Rotate up (C1U)

Rotate right (L3L)

Rotate down (C1D)

Rotate left (L3R)

Procedure to complete Rubik's cube

It involves 7 steps as follows.

1) Setting Layer – 1: Edge pieces






Make yellow face up

Rotate to get edge pieces black (in majority cases opposite to yellow is white color)

Rotate to get all edge pieces black

Rotate L3 to align edge pies color same as centerpiece color

Rotate the front face twice in any direction, to make black edge pieces become at the bottom layer. Then turn the cube in any direction and match the centerpiece color with black edge side color. And repeat the above steps, so that it looks as shown in the figure.

2) Setting Layer – 1: Corner pieces




Align corner piece matches with side face color.

Repeat Method - 1 till the corner matches with edge colors.

Rotate cube and repeat Method - 1, till layer 1 becomes the same color.

3) Setting Layer - 2: Corner pieces





Rotate L3 in any direction till the edge piece color becomes the centerpiece color.

Find where that piece to be fit (left side or right side of L2). Rotate L3 opposite to the direction where it needs to fit (if right side to be fit then rotate left side).

If the right side rotated then, apply Method - 2, and rotate the cube right side and repeat Method - 1.

If the left side rotated then, apply Method - 1, and rotate the cube left side, and repeat Method - 2.

The previous step followed until the L2 completes.

4) Setting Layer – 3: Top face set like type +






Hold top face has three yellow color pieces shown in image.

Rotate front face right side one time.

Repeat Method – 1, and then rotate front face left side one time. This step is repeated till gets all yellow edge pieces (like + symbol).

Rotate L3, in any direction to get corner piece(s) match(es) other faces colors.

If two faces matched, hold that left side, and repeat Method - 1, 3 times and rotate cube left side and repeat Method - 2, 3 times.

5) Setting Layer – 3: Aligning corner pieces




Rotate L3, in any direction to get corner piece(s) match(es) other faces colors.

If two faces matched, hold that left side, and repeat Method - 1, 3 times and rotate cube left side and repeat Method - 2, 3 times.

The previous step is repeated till all corner colors get matches with their respective side faces.

6) Setting Layer – 3: Top face color setting



Turn cube to face Black as the top face (or White). Find the corner piece having a yellow color at C3.

Repeat Method - 1, till the corner piece gets align with the corresponding color. Rotate L1, if any corner piece is having a yellow color. And continue Method-1, till the yellow face completes. Rotate cube back to yellow face upside.

7) Setting Layer – 3: Swapping edge pieces




Hold one of the completed front faces towards your side.

Perform Method - 1 one time (do not rotate) and perform Method - 2 one time. Then perform Method -1 five times, then Method - 2 five more times.

Previous steps repeated till all face colors get sets.
