- The exercises didn"t do what I think they should do. To small focus on showing how to work. perhaps divide it into to parts. The first half the TA shows some chosen exercise, and the second part the TA is answering questions.. I only visited the first ones, perhaps this changed during the course.. i don"t know.» (75%)
- Only lectures, the excersice sessions was bad» (75%)
- Good lecturer!» (75%)

- The preducate logic question took too much time, showing that you understand how to handle the tools and boolean logic could have been done in a less time-consuming way (seeing as it was only 3pts and took way more then 3/25th of the exam time)» (To some extent)
- The exam felt a bit different from the exercises. The goals need to be better specified during the course if they differ from the exercises.» (To some extent)
- The exam was much easier then the one in Modeling and Simulation» (Yes, definitely)

- Very theoretical. Better to start off and explain what could be done more practical, and then go through the theorems..» (Small extent)
- Having already some knowledge in this field, the lecture notes (really detailed) was enough for me to understand all the course.» (Small extent)
- Bengt is saying the same things in the same order as the courseliterature. Sometimes he"s a bit confused and doesn"t seem to be prepared enough.» (Some extent)
- Followed the course literature well. easy to prepare for the lectures.» (Large extent)

- Sometimes the lectures was better then the lecture notes and the lectures was more deeper then the lecture notes. Sometimes you want to have more information about a subject from the lecture notes and this was not possible thou the notes and the lectures was the same.» (Large extent)
- The litterature is good and probably will be even better next year. The excercises are good and is really good that the have solutions and not just answeres.» (Great extent)
- It would be good if the literature had index in back of book, would make it easier to look up things.» (Great extent)

- A bit annoying with delayed handin assignments since this is not the only course we study. You prepare your time between the courses based to given deadlines, and when one is postponed a week or so it destroys your plans. » (Rather badly)
- The course homepage was really often "temporaty unavailable". Also, for the assignments, the homepage had all the features necessary to hand-in on it ... but yet we were asked to hand-in all assignment as paper reports (despite the fact that these assignments required to write some Matlab).» (Rather badly)
- I would very much have liked it if the hone assignments had been available at an earlier stage so us students are allowed to plan our work ourselves. We had a one week window from delivery of the assignment to the deadline, which made it hard for those who already hat planned to travel or work that week. But i understand this happened because the assignments were new and created during this course. The first one was very good but the second was too easy and dident give as much insight as the first» (Rather badly)
- The new student gate is horrible... Downtime, slow, unreliable.» (Rather badly)
- Still very bad Chalmers studie portal.» (Rather well)

- Too theoretical for me» (Fair)
- Needs some polishing» (Good)
- Good teacher and interesting course material. TA Alexy was very helpful and he had good answers and explanations. » (Good)
- Bengt is a very good teacher and his enthusiasm made the classes more fun. » (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Both home assignments are quite interesting.»
- the fact that the literature corresponded well with the content of the course.»
- Assignments!»
- Professors, literature,LAB,Home Assignment»
- Course contents are good enough to be continued»
- The course was very useful so I think I should be preserved and also classical exercises.»
- The teacher. It is obvious that Bengt thinks it is funny and he is very inspiring.»
- The course structure was very good»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- More practical examples»
- The lab session seems like a waste of time considering most of the students (those from automation and mechatronics) have already completed a very similar assignment. »
- As a French student, I"ve learned a lot about GRAFCET (SFC). But I think that for other students, it could be interesting to learn a little more about it (especially because it would really help to understand the lab session).»
- the lab, even if it is one of the labs i have enjoyed the most during my time at chalmers, it did not add that much to do it a second time. »
- The excercise sessions could be much better»
- the way to teach in exercise class. should explain the concept first and solve some examples of exercise with students.»
- Make sure Supremica is installed on the computers at Chalmers, we shouldn"t have to bring an own computer (what if we have no laptop?) to install it on, and we want to be able to work together at Chalmers»
- It felt like we didnt apply the theory in the lab assignment, even if it was fun. And home assignment 2 could be a bit harder so that you can learn more from it»
- Some really tricky exercises or some long exercises like the "Man, wolf, cabbage and goat".»
- Have a short introduction to Supremica in a computer lab»
- The notes/book has to be more explanatory then the lectures. Some more time on the last chapter and maybe some more examples in the begining of a new subject. This is an abstract subject and sometimes it is hard to understand what to do.»

16. Additional comments

- Some more old exams with answers wouldnt be bad»
- The excercises was good!»
