Seminar is basically a kind of discussion-like form of in-class education. There may not be a formal class-book. Rather, there could be several reference books and many other materials (articles from journals) to read. Normally the students must actively participate in the course - either individually or as small teams. You need to read these materials, select a topic of interest, prepare and presentation your views/theories on that topic. It is really helpful in imrpoving your comprehensive skill - reading, understanding and communicating.
最初由 Rabbit 发布 <HTML>谁学过 intro to information & systems sciece, CU的课，老师名字姓Li
I was majored in computer science during under-graduated study in China. I already leaned most part of this course during under-graduated study. For an ISS student, who was not majored in computer science during under-graduated study , the course is little bit tough. But Prof. Li is very good. I never heard anybody failed in this course. I took his course three years ago.
