- Too large secod lab. Should be divided into smaller parts. The lab PM should be rewritten to give corrcet bit Endian in the tables. We spent a week on a bug relating to this.» (Probably effective)
- well they can be improved, you can add some small assignment pertaining to solving real time programming problems and scheduling etc. And I feel that train simulation program is perhaps not so effetive.» (Probably effective)
- Depends on the lab» (Probably effective)
- Although more labs can be good. The current lab can be just the second of 2 labs which can help understand more the language. The first lab can be an introduction and practice for ADA95.» (Very effective)

- Try to use "tabs", so that the homepage gets more overwievable. To much unneccecarily information on the homepage, the students does not read it..» (Very badly)

- It seemed like both the lab assistants weren"t really understanding/paying attention to what our (me and my lab partner) questions/issues/and problems were and instead focused and insisted on other aspects that were irrelevant, or almost gave us complete parts of the solution we weren"t actually working on at the moment. Also, the chinese girl (don"t know her name) has got huge problems at understanding and speaking english altogether.» (Rather poor) (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

- we should have some compulsory homework...» (Low)
- But the lab was poorly written. And you spent to much time on trying to figure out what you were supposed to do. It should be more clear! My lab group spent like 20 hours trying to find out what we were supposed to do and then maybee 3 hours in doing just that. » (Adequate)

- More on hands practice for ADA95 is required as I didnt understand it until several weeks.» (Good)
- Very good lecturer, few at Chalmers is this good. The only thing that bothers me is that he pronounces words like "fast", "last" and "task" with british accent, which really messes up the flow of the language since he pronounces everything else like an american (which is good because american english is generally easier to understand). So my tip for the lecturer, go american all the way! Don"t let those middle school english teachers get to you! Cheers» (Good)
- good lectures... exercises sessions were clear! » (Good)
- very good lecturer, I think. It"s easy to understand the lectures (though this subject is quite new and difficult for me) then no need to pay much time to fix the confusions in the books.» (Excellent)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The teacher»
- the teacher and the teacher"s assistent»
- Lectures, Exercises.»
- Lab project. Guest lecturer.»
- Everything else but Labs, I suggest you introduce some small programming assignment related to scheduling problems and programming of real time system. Assignments pertaining to reading new research papers could also be helpful.»
- The laboration»
- Exercise lectures offered by Risat. Very useful.»
- analysis»
- The train lab»
- the train lab»
- train lab»
- Risat»
- The book was not needed to pass labbs and exam.»
- lectures. Guest lecture. Exercise sessions... lab :)»
- lecture note, more exercise, lab , guest lecture, more connection with industrial»
- all lectures and the lab session.»
- The lecturer and the lab assistant Risat was very good so they should definitely stay. » (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Lab assignment must be changed, otherwise people can get last year"s solution and do the assignment.»
- Lab, Need to give betten and correct information in the lab PM.»
- see the answer to Q. 16»
- perhaps add a laboration or some assignment focusing on scheduling, since it is an important part of the course.»
- The labs really need better documentation. Also it would be preferable if the lab was not so closed, that is that it would be possible to think out an own solution instead of being restricted to the "right" way. Also, the handlers should probably not hand out as big parts of the solutions as they do and also it would be nice if they knew ada better, especially the girl this year...»
- Lab assistants. Make sure their level of english is adequate for the job and that they know how to properly deal with questions from the students.»
- Nothing particularly»
- nothing»
- The lab. It should be more clear .. if you dont know what to do you will not learn either»
- lab could have needed some more general idea explanations. Some parts were quite hard to just understand were to start, but when lab assistant explained it that was very useful. Better to do the hints/explanations in bigger group though.»
- just add more exercise for the math part of course»
- we should some more workload such as homework (both programming and calculation exercises).»
- Make a software simulator for the train lab so one can work on those labs anywhere. It was a bit frustrating that you had to be in the lab to write the code.»
- book»

18. Additional comments

- really good teacher and TA!»
- The teacher is grate and have a sense of humor that is great, teaching very good and our assistant try to help every one as much as they can. Thanks them all»
- no comments»
- I stop go to the lecture because the lecture didn"t have a flow. The exchange student asked so many question so the lecture get choppy. Plus many of the lecture was on the same time as compulsory lecture in the bachelor work.»
- Great Lectures.»
- We spend too much time learning ADA before studying the "real" material. But I don"t know how could it be improved. »
- Personally I had trouble attending the exercise lectures because I felt too tired to attend two lectures after one another that late in the afternoon. It might be better to have the exercise lecture another day but something tells me you"ve already tried that as well.»
- Is it clear!!»
- is it clear :)»
- In general I love this course!»
- more guest lectures, more papers for "recommended reading"»
