- I think that the requirements to pass were a bit low for a masters level course. Most noticable was the general attitude towards the course as being "easy" shown by both students and lecturers. A more challenging course would have been even more fun!» (Low)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The inspiring talks of people who are really interested in the subject. The handouts of the slides in beforehand.»
- Ralph peeker he was really good!»
- Dr.Skoglund because he presented Brain and Nervous system very well and interesting»
- This awesome course»
- The lectures and variety of lecturers.»
- Ralph Peeker was great!»
- The lectures about biochemistry, cells, tissues, urinary tract, endocrine system, reproductive system, muscles and skeleton was very good! »
- Ralph Peeker! An excellent teacher. »
- The textbook, which is very good and Ralph Peeker which is a very good tutor. »
- time slot.Should be 3 hours minimum per class.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Some handouts and slides(translate everything to English), it would be good if all of the slides were handed in beforehand. It would also be good if all of them had a summary of what we are supposed to know after the lectures.»
- More examples of exam questions should be shown so the students have an idea of what one should learn , it was hard to know how much one should read/learn since it was alout of details and different people that gave the lectures. One alternative is to say or give a paper oon what to learn, sort of a "punktlista" eg the summary on the first lecture in part a (biochemistry) was good, maybe one coudl do that for all lectures. »
- The lecture about CNS and PNS it was to slow and to much information to take in one can just take the most important parts and make it to just 2 lectures at the most!»
- Add homework»
- The course should hold itself in higher esteem, if that makes any sense. It is interesting and as high attendance, so I think it can also expect more from the students.»
- Don´,t rearrange the schedule all the time! »
- Mr Skoglund is very slow,he never had time to finnish is powerpoints. »
- The exam was very detailed questions, especially the second. Isn"t it better to understand the functions of the body parts instead the latin word for something? I think it was to much latin and to little of the other. I think the lectures about CNS were had too much details about names of parts. I also think the senses got to much questions on the exam, we didnot have any time to cover that part (because we talked about CNS all thouse lectures). »
- The lecture about terms was not so interesting -would be better to take some terms at each lecture instead.»
- Nothing that I can think of.»
- nothing specific»
- Lecture slides should be comprehensive.»

16. Additional comments

- This course is ver good and i really apreciate it.. Because Speciallist doctors teach us. They also teach their practical experiences.... So it is learning for us about human and it Closes me with GOD»
- I would be great if you can post on webpage earlier for the cancellation of class and not on the day of study (we are already waiting in the class).»
- Really interesting course»
- Putting the lectures in the evening worked very well for me, it"s easy to fit this course into the schedule. The exam session sadly turned into a bit of a joke. Two students next to me were allowed to have a low-toned discussion about each of the exam questions in hindi with no intervention from the supervisors, and I heard stories of the same happening in other rooms. I don"t think it is at all acceptabe for Chalmers to choose to overlook things like this...»
- It"s not really nicely done to have several exam questions on topics that were not addressed in the lectures. The eye for example.»
- This course would be possible to study on a distance, especially if it would be possible to add recordings from the lectures on the course page»
- Course contents are good but lectures material was not quite clear. No reasonable description of the slides just pictures. In some topics, even teacher didn"t prepare the lecture slides. Some lectures slides were in swedish language. On some occasions, students were not informed about the cancelled lectures. »
