- Good examination except I did"nt have time to answer everything because of all the interpolations! The calculation tasks could have been more "trimmed" to fit the tables.» (To some extent)
- Too much points for the questions about lectures compared to the quite tricky exercises» (To some extent)
- Too much focus and time needed for interpolation...

- I think that the case is good for the understanding. But it could be handled better. It has been some problems with the computer rooms, something that is hard to be prepared for but since it was the same every week, a change of room should have been possible. Then it confusing when the teachers say different things concerning how the solve different things in Ebsiolon. We are using Epsilon for the first time and getting this kind of information don"t make it easier. Finally it had also been great if all of those that correct the cases has the same criteria for a approved report!» (Moderate)
- Hard to know what to include in the report and how important the different parts are.» (Moderate)
- The case study PM was poor when it came to the design of the report. About which information to include and so in.

It doesn"t add anything extra to the course to let all groups correct their reports afterwards! » (Moderate)
- I think the case study can be a part of the final result, no only compulsory to pass it.» (Good)
- Good way to more understand the lectures» (Good)
- Could have been more information in the litterature how to construct the feedwater preheating. It felt like you didnt exactly knew how to design these.» (Good)
