- The written exam shows how well the student can learn on the book, but it does not mean he (she) has understood all the concepts. A study case examination with an essay could be relevant to see if the student is really capable to reflect on the points seen.» (To some extent)
- I believe the test covered a very homogenous content of the lectures imparted, and anyone who had attended the lectures (and read the literature) could have easily passed. I felt there were no "surprise" questions or material covered on the test. EVerything had been previously covered during the lectures.» (Yes, definitely)

Went a bit over his time, which meant the NEXT guy, who I would have liked to hear a lot more, had to cut his lecture by about half to make up for the time the first guy used. First guy used too many real life examples, etc. I felt like telling him "give us the information, we can digest it"»

13. What is your opinion of the guest lectures (Kjell-Åke Averstad, Fredrik Wahlqvist, Johny Lindeberg)?

- it is easy to understand»
- May help in future,when it comes to real business.»
- good but more focus on UK system»
- Okey. Honestly, I was so burdened by the "other" course (managing organizations in the construction industry) that i had but a mere week or two to read the entire book. That was a bit stressfull, since I think the book needs to be read first and "digested" later. (otherwise, analyzed) but there was no time for that.»
- Too many brtittish cases, like Jan said in the beginning. But focusing on the main text gave me some understanding.»
- Confusing book, descriptions of important aspects are broad but does not consider the main differences between them.»
- i missed some parts about calculating an offer as a bidding contractor. it was mentioned in the book but not within the course»
- Good»
- very easy to read»
- It was easy to read and supporting the lecture.»

- some concepts of them are not so clear»
- Don"t know whether they are useful to me.»

THe ECC material is far too extensive to learn under one period, but i do appreciate the guidelines in order to understand its importance and to continue studying it by myself.»
- Interesting, we already have Eurocodes for construction, why not the same for service contracts.»
- Not very useful. The slides from the lecture give the most important parts.»
- interesting»
- Good»
- little bit more complicated»
- It was fun to read them. But lecturers should give some information and examples on reading them easily. Some laws were general. So it"s better to mention general laws in the lecture. For me, it was hard to read the same laws in different conditions again and again.»

- A way for professors to make sure their articles are read. Winch was interesting.»

Group assignment

20. What is your opinion of the group assignment in general (usefulness, topics...)

- Very useful, learnt me a lot about quite an unknown subject.»
- Good, to have a better insight of one specific subject.»
- I enjoyed the shortness since you have to narrow your focus down and only discuss the most interesting parts. Fun interview.»
- my group is a mix international students,we use english as the common language,it is ok. Not like each group, which contains too many swedish students, them speak swedish and other group members can not understand.»
- To easy to pass. »
- Good,but I did very little.»
- No problem here. I think that the chance to choose your topic is really good, since it allows each and every one to choose something he/she is interested in. As well as the chance to choose your group, although that can also be discouraging for those who do not know others in the class and feel "left out". Something to put in the balance. Preparing for the "real world", I believe we should all adapt to working in pre-determined groups...»
- Should be an individual or perhaps a 2 ppl task.»
- Relevant topics that were suitable to keep short (only the most important parts to be included in the assignement).»
- I had the worst group in the history of mankind»
- scale of project could be greater, but at the same time it was proper due to the large workload in the other course (MOCI)»
- Good»
- It was funny to work in group. It"s nice to search and learn something with a group.»
- Its useful. But I think there should have just two member in each group to ensure each"s contribution. Because it is just for two pages.»
- It was interesting and chalenging to hand out 2 pages»

- Considering the other course, many studied for the other exam since it was more complex.» (?)
- Had 4 courses.» (High)

- According to me it was a sahme that the other course was taking so much time since i found the ccr course more interesting. » (High)

25. What should definitely be preserved next year?

- Mannheimer and the assignment.»

- Lectures on law.»
- Potts"s book and the scientific articles should preserve.»

26. What should definitely be changed next year?

- Introduce assignments (individual or group) where cases wit contractual issues are presented. The assignment could be to solve these issues with the help of contracts (AB04?) »

- take more advantage of the book that the teacher ask us to buy»
- The workload of project,too low.»
- keep it up except in selecting guest lectures»
- Maybe the group assignment? maybe you should make the groups.. encourage new bonds between Chalmerister students and the new foreign students. Very easy for them to feel left out (the new international students.)»
- More case excersices in class and small hand-ins about different topics that in the end would form a rough plan of how to go from client"s vision to signed contract.»
- The course literature.»
- more readings of case studies (court cases)»
- Include a studytrip»
- Nothing»
- Lectures on negotiation should be decreased and guest lecturers (except the ones related to law) should be changed.»
