Anonymous said: Is 18.100B particularly more difficult than 18.100A ? How about the grades ?
Yes, the B version is substantially more difficult than A - usually because of the quality of professors, but also because the content goes by faster, and into more depth, than A. I’m not sure about grading or testing differences, but I would suppose they’re not terribly different.

“As an analogy, suppose Bob is curious to determine whether Alice could join him for dinner at a nice restaurant on the beach. He would likely just phone her and politely ask, “Sweet Alice, are you available for a lovely oceanside dinner?”, as opposed to barging into her apartment, probing through all of her belongings in search of her calendar, and demanding that she join him if she is available. This latter infraction would likely disturb her so much that she would never speak to him again (and what would become of quantum Shannon theory without these two communicating!).”
