- The book gives guidelines but not so much for the course but more for the master thesis.» (Some extent)
- I don´,t know if this is the best book for this subject or what we need to learn for our Master thesis. There might be another book/books that suits our purpose better.» (Some extent)
- The course book was rather vague and poorly written. I also believe that it lacked the proper depth considering that the course is at a masters level. It would have been better if we read relevant parts of a more extensive book which we could have used as a reference source later on when we are writing the master-thesis. (Now we spent good money on a book which only scratched the surface and we still have to browse the library shelves when it"s time to start writing.) » (Some extent)
- Very interesting books. » (Great extent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The background report as it eases the writing process and the "getting started" with the master thesis. Maybe though next time one should decide on the language when presenting. It was confusing to have prepared in english and then needing to present in swedish. »
- The background and methodology report which can be used for the masters-thesis.»
- The main "exam" about the master thesis presentation. Maby to inform the students a littlebit earlier about the topic/content of the last exam so one can think ready what they will focus their master thesis on. Now it seemed to be a lotts of "mabys" from students when they presented their work. But anyhow interesting»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- More focus on the actual master thesis. Maybe some help with finding an appropriate method for it. This time it was short to discuss the reports due to lack of time. »
- More active lessons with examples from reality.»
- More statistics. »
- Cant think of any»
- All lectures to be finalised before commencement of main task.»

16. Additional comments

- There is some improvements to be done to rise the standard of this coure to the same level as the other within this programme. »
- I"m still a bit puzzled about what"s actually required from a masters-thesis. But perhaps that will be covered in the introduction in December?»
- Interesting course, maby some more time for the teacher/lecturer to bring out the aim and content of the course. »
