- Good but sometimes it felt liked they where out sync with the lectures and the project.» (Rather good)

- A lot of calculations. Perhaps too much. Difficult to start solving the project before Jonathan had gone through last years project (which happened the day before the deadline).» (Rather good)
- The problem is rather good! But still it"s a lot of calculations, to some degree, it"s a little bit boring to list so so long equations....» (Rather good)
- It was good, gave good insight to what we learned in lectures. Some part"s could have used better examples how to make them. In lectures or/and solving lessons.» (Rather good)
- The fact that you learned so much from the project made it worth doing. It had however too much "mechanical" calculations that you didnt learn anything from.» (Rather good)

- I would prefer the system where some points can be earned with the project (for example 5/20), but still an exam is needed to pass.» (Rather bad)
- Since the project consumes a lot of time this system seems reasonable.» (Very good)
- It makes me focus more on learning for fun and not for grade, which is better for the grade.» (Very good)

- But i do think that the project and the adams lab sholud make you understand the most important things to be able to fulfil them.» (Very good)
- But this also a problem, because if you pass the course bevor the exam I was not so motivated for the exam» (Very good)
- Releases the pressure on exam studies.» (Very good)

20. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- - The well structured lectures - The well structured PSS - The project and computerlab»
- The project and adams lab»
- the grading system.»
- The project was really interesting part of the course. It actually covered all the materials.»
- Passing the course by doing the project and ADAMS. Compendium and the project problems.»
- All parts.»
- projektet och labben»

- Projektet»
- Everything.»
- Project and problem solving»
- The system that you can pass the course by doing the project and ADAMS labs without doing the exam.»
- adams-lab»
- I thnink the project is very good to keep. also more work on ADAMS lab will be more usefull.»
- The project and ADAMS lab»

21. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- - Go through last years project at least 3-4 days before the deadline. This year, this was done the day before the deadline which is too late!»
- the Adams lab... dont know how, but maybe more help.»
- I think that the more professional aspects of the rigid body dynamics should be taught during this course, as the contents of this course were just a review of the bachelor"s degree.»
- More examples and illustrations booth in compendium and in lectures., also a little clearer compendium/tasks in ADAMS.»
- Fewer calculations in project.»
- ADAMSlab»
- Use of the web page to a greater extent. See above.»
- the solutions to the problem solving should be clearer. So that you don"t have to do ask about every question that you come up with.»
- More figures in the compendium»
- It would bee good if the problem solving session would bee more to help the students solving the problems instead of just going throw problems on the blck board. »

22. Additional comments

- A good and well working course.»
- Great course!»
- Vad som skulle ändras i returerna skulle kunna beskrivas lite tydligare. Skriv inte "correct" för det kan tolkas både som att det är rätt och att det ska rättas. »
- This is a course i gladly recommend to others.»
- Thanks for the great course. Go on like that!»
- bra övningsledare»
- I did not like the way Anders correct the exam papers. if you do something wrong somewhere you lose many points, thats not fair»
