The points of interest are:

A session is where a group of students are taught. All classes with the same name will be grouped together even if they occur on several days or in multiple locations. � See the Berkeley and Livermore Classes.
  2. The Day of the week the class is held. If there are multiple classes with the same class name, they are sorted in weekday order from Sunday through Saturday.
