- Maybe a little more than "No, not at all", but the focus was a lot different from the lectures. And 3 out of 7 tasks regarding proofs of discrete mathematics are maybe a bit to much. Even if the whole plan this year was to make a harder exam compared to last year"s exam...» (No, not at all)
- The exam vas very bad and did not reflect the importent parts of the course. Very unfair compered with last years test! » (No, not at all)
- The examination didn"t reflect the course at all... » (No, not at all)

- I think the exam didn"t reflect the course. There were not many exercises that looked like them we had practiced on. » (To some extent)
- The examination was not fair in the sense that it only tested parts of the course which where the last 10 percent of the total.» (To some extent)
- The exam did not match the lectures, several question did not have relation to the excerices that were given out to solve.» (To some extent)
- The exam was a bit too hard. Bengt told us that he was aiming to make it harder this year. And the difference from earlier years was radical.» (Yes, definitely)

- There are lots of grammatical errors in the lecture notes that made me lose focus often and get confused.» (Small extent)

- Good papers and good connection to the lessons.» (Large extent)
- The literature was written by Bengt, and it is absolutely the best. As always with Lennartssons literature.» (Great extent)

- Alexi and Bengt!»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Edit the lecture notes. Focus more on Implementation.»
- better quality assignments in terms of material coverage.»
- The hand-ins could be extended.»
- skip or shorten chapter 2, find the mistakes in the solutions to the exercises, a bit more proofs»
- Maybe add one more labb. »
- presenting some more practical applications of this course.»
- Nothing definetly. May be a bit more lectures about extended/stochastic automata (Chapter 8)»
- Nothing really.»
- Change the exam to something in between "the old" and "the new" exam. »
- Put more previous exams on the homepage!!! One is not enough. Especially if you make an exam totally different from previous years.»
- The exercises, and the relevance of the exam questions.»

- The very late introduction of new stuff the very last day of the week 7»
- The exam did not match the lectures, several question did not have relation to the excerices that were given out to solve.»

16. Additional comments

- none.»
- i can advise this course every interested exchange student.»
- The course was very interesting, thank you very much.»
- Bengt Lennartsson did a great job as always. He deserves all appreciation.»
- From 60% grade 5 to 60% grade U?»
- Very good lectures/hearings!»
