- De beror nog mycket på vad man gjort innan. För mig var inte något moment i kursen nytt, jag har läst PDE (andra året på teknisk fysik), gjort MC-beräkningar i termo-kursen i trean och i en statistikkurs och MD har jag snuddat vid i något sammanhang också.» (Reasonable)
- Jobbigt om man har många andra kurser» (High)
- It is a bit too busy. However, this may attribute to that I do not have much physics background and I have to learn lots of physics in the same time.» (High)
- Demanding, but good» (High)
- But it was ok for me, since I only took this course during last period.» (High)

- The oral exam was vauge and I think it affects the grade too much. It should ONLY reveal if the person has been working on the course or just been watching! Not the final grade!» (?)
- Endast inlämningar är ännu bättre» (Fair)
- I found the format of the oral exam somewhat confusing, I expected it to be more of a discussion, now it felt like you were handed three oaoers, write your answer on them, what you write is your answer. The advantage of an oral exam should in my opinion be that you can ask the teacher questions as well while answering so it turns out to be more of a discussion. I think oral is better, but as this worked we could have spared us the trouble and had a written exam.» (Fair)
- I was asked questions about excersises that i did not do which was not good.» (Fair)
- It should be clearer what type of questions there are on the exam, so that one can study appropiately» (Fair)
- I think some questions were easier than others. Resulting in exams of different difficulties.» (Fair)
- Perfekt att det bara är redovisningar för E1-6, inga rapporter. Då ödslas inte en massa tid bara på rapportskrivande utan att faktiskt lära sig beräkningsfysik.» (Very good)

- Länkarna till NR funkade inte för mig. Fick upp helt vita pdf-sidor.» (Rather useful)
- Koncis och allt som behövs finns» (Very useful)
- Good material, and updated on regular basis.» (Very useful)

- Handledartiderna räckte inte till. Man fick vänta två timmar på att ställa en fråga och hann därför inte redovisa uppgifterna på utsatt tid. Fler handledare!» (Rather poor)
- Way to many people for the amount of supervisers» (Rather poor)
- The help provided by the teaching assistants was very good. In my opinion, the only problem regarding the labs is the fact that it took long time to before the help came, maybe more sessions?» (Rather good)
- I only attended them to be passed, which worked.» (Rather good)
- Lite lång kötid dock... Blev bara redovisande för min del, inget "bollande" av idéer och liknande.» (Rather good)
- It was sometimes difficult to get help.» (Rather good)
- but the queues were so long you had to be there in time, or wait till the next opportunity» (Rather good)
- I would appreciate if there had been either more assistants per capita and/or a first exercise session where the assistant did some coding displayed on the wall (I mean with a projector). Perhaps optional for those of us that had never done any programing before.» (Rather good)
- Too many students and too few supervisors = long waiting. But the supervisors were very freindly although they had very much to do. I wouldn"t.» (Rather good)
- Though it could take a VERY long time to get help sometimes, but perhaps this is because there were far more students than expected? Organisation was good but more teachers are needed.» (Very good)

- Lär sig mycket handfasta användbara tekniker» (Good)
- Would be nice with a little bit more on theoretical aspects.» (Good)
- had expected more theoretical detials» (Good)
- Riktigt bra kurs. Det är skönt när många andra kurser faktiskt inte håller måttet på masternivå...» (Excellent)
- I really like that we solved so many different problems, now I feel much more confident about programming and computations!» (Excellent)

12. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Exercises. »
- exersices and homeworks»
- The exercises and homework problems.»
- Fortsatt inga rapporter på E1-6.»
- Övningar och hemuppgifterna var lagom många och lagom svåra. Även bra med två inlämningar per hemuppgift.»
- The basic idea with the course»
- The exercise sessions. »
- The homeworks.»
- In principle all of it»
- Second deadlines, I found that I learned a lot by the feedback and going through the homework one more time»
- The homeproblems, and the system with 2 deadlines. This way you get feedback on your work which is very good, and something that you don"t see very often.»
- Variety of problems, all homeworks»
- Mix of easier exercises and more demanding home problems. The only way to learn this course is to do a lot of programming...»

13. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- lab sessions»
- Att alla slides finns tillgängliga vid kursens början. Skulle vara bättre om muntan kunde relatera till ens individuella rapporter.»
- The oral exam, accurate number of assistants for the exercises. »
- The workload in the course is quite high, so if some of the exercises could be made a little less time-consuming it would be a good thing. »
- Some work in the 2nd latest week should be rescheduled, else it will be too busy in that week.»
- see my comment on question no.10. »
- Maybe the exam should be changed in some way. However, I am satisfied with my exam. But when listening to what some of the other students said, it was sometimes considered unfair.»

14. Additional comments

- Tack för kursen! Vi ses i CompPh B!»
- Both "computational" and "physics" are learned from this course. Thus I learned as much as two courses. It is nice»
- I guess in this course it was almost impossible for teachers to distinguish between students who solved problems themselves, and those who just had ready solutions»
