- Probably one of the worst course books ever during my studies. I can"t understand why they have decided to use this book, or I can understand why per wants us to use it....» (Small extent)
- Course book is not easy to understand and the materials are being presented with a difficult language and sometimes there is no link between the concepts in a very same chapter.» (Small extent)
- Course book is very confusing.» (Small extent)
- as the book is the only thing allowed for the exam and it describe a different approach from other texts we are limited to the comprension of this theory.» (Small extent)
- Their are many errors in the book and I wonder why there there is no errata for the book ...its makes it really hard to read, because u spend half and hour on an equation and finally u realize its a MISPRINTING.... u lose ur motivation of reading the book... PLEASE BRING THIS POINT UP» (Small extent)
- The book is not good. It is badly structured and important formulas are in text and not as equations. It is also hard to understand sometimes since concepts aren"t presented in a good way.» (Some extent)

- Think that they should not use power point that much. There is a lot of slides that they just need to show, because it"s good to have seen it. But I don"t think that it will do any difference in that case, I can"t understand by just looking at it... » (medium)
- The was far more better than the main lecturer.at least his language was comprehensible.Unfortunately, lectures which he was the sole lecturer was too few and these few ones were interrupted by the main lecturer every now and then that was so destructive in process of concentration and learning,» (good)

- I"m very disappointed about the course. » (Poor)
- The worst course I had in this master program until now.» (Poor)
- One of the worst courses so far at Chalmers, unfortunately. First of all, it feels like there are way too many people involved. Both lecturers and teaching assistants. The lectures are 100% Powerpoint based which in my mind is a very negative thing. When you"re presented with a Powerpoint slide full of equations you haven"t seen before the understanding is probably close to 0%. I would much rather see one single dedicated lecturer and much less use of Powerpoint and more derivations and calculations on the blackboard. The tutorials are completely catastrophic. The teaching assistants are simply not good at explaining or calculating problems in a way that"s easy to understand. Many tutorial sessions consisted of the teaching assistant coming in to fill up the blackboard with hard to understand equations while almost not saying a word. The problems also feel a bit weird and not representative of the kind of problems you can expect in the exam for example. I also think the textbook should be changed. It is natural that Per-Simon prefers to use the textbook he"s written himself but I"m pretty sure that from an objective point of view it has no benefits over an international grade textbook like Balanis for example. My main complaints about the current textbook is that it very much feels like a "work in progress", with references not being correct, lots of mistakes, blank pages, lack of examples, lack of problems and what not. Some parts are also not explained very clearly.» (Poor)
- I was expecting a course more focused in the antenna design within a system. but the coursed is more focused in the characterization.» (Fair)
- The topics were good, but the lectures were not interesting and the tutorials were hard to follow. The tutorials did not provide any further understanding in the subject, the solutions to problems were just copied from a paper onto the blackboard.» (Fair)
- I like this course but the workload for this course is rather high (we must study and remember many things)» (Good)

21. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The labs. They are a really good experience and an oportunity to see in reality and work with concepts and elements that most of the times we study just in theoretical lectures.»
- Jan Carlsson, Labs were somehow helpful»
- Labs are the only good way of learning antennas.»
- the laboratories.»
- Labs were good»
- The home assignments which give extra point for student are good. They encourage student to study more.»
- JanCarlsson and Ashraf TA and Elenna TA»
- The labs were good and gave good insight into practical work.»
- assignments and lab 3»
- Labs»
- The tutorials by the phd students have been very helpful to understand the theory. They should be preserved. It would be quite useful to have some additional lectures only to solve questions about exams.»
- lab-3 (New microstrip patch antenna lab)» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

22. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Tutors,book should be revised and changed basically.»
- so many assignments»
- Course Book.»
- the book and also the concept of the exam.. Not so much know by heart stuff!»
- The workload of this course is rather high. It is better if the workload is reduced»
- TEXT BOOK... please modify this or publish errata for the book... its bad litrature»
- The assignments could be handed out immediately at the beginning of the course, that way the students can decide themselves how close to the deadline they want to start working on them.»
- the compendium is not very helpful. rather the book of balanis is helpful. moreover, the tutors for exercise were not well prepared, they should be changed or trained next year»
- Different textbook, less Powerpoint, one single lecturer and at most 2 teaching assistants»
- The workload is really big, It would be recommendable to divide the subject into two courses and treat more deeply some topics in order to understand more properly the theory.»

23. Additional comments

- Timing was not kept at all, sometimes main lecturer continued teaching and even passed breaks which were so exhausting.Main lecturer should have more respect for the other assistants.There should be a review in every material which are handed out for obvious mistakes. »
- All teachers and TAs are good. They are very pleased to answer the questions of student.»
