- Sometimes, I would prefer a more mathematical/theoretical approach to fully understand the background to some of the formulas used. I would also prefer some exercises/problems without grading, in addition to the assignments. Now, I learnt 90% of the course material while doing "the exam" = assignments. I don"t think that is a very good thing.» (Adequate)

22. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- - The assignments. You could learn quite a lot from them... The oral exam, nice opportunity to directly get feedback and response!»
- Hand-in assignments.»
- most of the things»
- Oral exam, hand-ins.»
- Good to have the SVM labs that is similar to what we are doing in TA. »
- The assignments»
- The well-explained lectures»
- oral examination, good test in order to see whether we understood the topic»

23. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- - Make all lecture notes availabe in the beginning of the course»
- The typeface used in the notes...»
- some more problems might be solved in the lectures or exercise times, beside assignments. »
- A better overview of the material and more explanations on applications»
- More clear goals, so we know what is expected of us. So much theory on short period of time can be hard to process.»
- - More time to do the assignments - More concrete examples in lectures - Less maths and equations (less abstract)»
- nothing should definitely changed, maybe more practical exemples»
- some help in matlab about table»
- The way of explaining the concepts, in some cases it was better to read the lecture notes than going to the lectures. During the exercise lectures the womework can be explained in a better way, more deeply»
