Didn"t force you to fight against time, anything between 2h and 3½,h could be spent on it as I see it. Forced you to think and be a bit clever and use the tricks we were supposed to have picked up.» (Yes, definitely)

- Dave is quite famous for this :-)» (Large extent)
- I like the lecture. It is so helpful. But it would have been good if this course can run for one semester and has 15 credits. Because there is not to read, you should always on assignments. Due to this reason, it has an impact on other course the students are taking. That is why i said it should run for semester with 15 credit.» (Large extent)
- Dave is a really great teacher! Always funny and involved.» (Great extent)
- Super Dave!» (Great extent)
- Teaching has generally been of very high quality! It"s always a treat to listen to native speakers of English, but apart from that I also found the lectures instructive and informative with a nice atmosphere to them. I got the feeling that Dave really knows his Haskell. » (Great extent)
- Really good lecturer, makes some of the concepts clearer by good examples and pedagogical approach.» (Great extent)
- I didn"t buy any book, the lab and exercises on the web page was 100% of my studies. I also looked at Learnyouhaskel.com, which was a great beginners online book.» (Great extent)
- David Sands lectures is great» (Great extent)
- David has learned the students all about FP. He has been great during the whole course!» (Great extent)

- Did not seen any of them since I went to most of the lectures.» (?)
- I haven"t actually looked at them myself so the rating is very subjective.» (Not useful at all)

- Maybe they were useful, i didn"t use them though.» (Not useful at all)

- Thanks, there were great. specially without them I would stuck in parsers» (Very useful)

- fun and very useful» (Most of them)

- if after each week the answers were uploaded it more useful and helpful» (Most of them)
- Too hard» (Some of them)
- Due to time constraints I focused on solving the labs, I felt you did not need to do the exercises to complete the lab. In preparation for the exam though, the exercises are very useful!» (Some of them)

- Didn"t have the course literature, solved the rest of the exercises (up to week 5 at least).» (Some of them)
- the first week I did but later I didn"t have time.» (Hardly any of them)

- I got a good hand of the material with the labs.» (Hardly any of them)
- Lab assignments takes most of our time » (Hardly any of them)
- I did, however, sit down and solve Project Euler problems with Haskell instead. Going to look at the exercises during my christmas break for fun. Like with the videos (and more importantly here) it"s great that they are there as an aid to learning Haskell.» (Hardly any of them)

- Good level» (Very useful)

- I only use learnyouhaskell.com» (Some extent)
- Haven"t taken a look at any course literature, but "other material" has been of great help. learnyouahaskell.com is splendid. Looked through that before this course. Hoogle and other such resources offer really good and solid information. Other than that, google offered any additional help needed.» (Great extent)

- I understand that the system with drop-in-times are convenient, but it does mean that you have to have a quite important question to make it worth preparing it and going there to ask, so you miss out on asking the small on-the-side questions which pop up while your working, wich are not essential to manage the task but wich would probably deepen your understanding.» (Rather poor)
- Missed having regular exercises.» (Rather poor)
- Ann was helpfull.» (Rather good)
- Above average I would say.» (Rather good)
- I actually missed having some exercies. But, to be honest, I don"t think I would go to any of them if they did exist. But somehow I still missed the exercis sessions... Strange, isn"t! =)» (Rather good)
- But it seemed to be good, I like the idea of open office where you can drop by with questions. I"ve missed that oppertunity in other courses where I actually would have needed it.» (I did not seek help)

- Just my lab partner ofc. Not really relevant question. » (Very well)
- I found a good lab partner who was on the same level as me. But, I guess it could have been better if a computer room was booked for a session each week. Then students who had weaker skills would have a natural place to meet for discussion. » (Very well)
- A couple of friends from my year also took the course, we discussed and helped eachother a bit.» (Very well)

- The lectures where very good! Easy to follow and interesting.» (Good)
- It"s a big deal to learn Haskell from scratch in 7 weeks. I would say "excellent", but I had problem to classify the different notions in my mind and the slides didn"t help me much on this.» (Good)
- Fun!» (Excellent)
- good to learn and see methods calls and error that happend even if these weren"t planed (during the lectures).» (Excellent)
- That is because of David - for sure!» (Excellent)
- I"m in love with functional programming! Was fairly sure that I wanted to study Computer Science here at Chalmers for my Master"s Degree, and now it"s pretty much set in stone. Won"t take the advanced course this year, but probably next year.» (Excellent)

15. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- video lectures»
- That the lab assignments were games, this made the course much more interesting.»
- Dave»
- Coding in the lectures.»
- labs and lecturer»
- assignments and teacher»
- The lecturer, lecturing style, guest lecturers and the last to computer assignments. »
- The video lectures.»
- The videos!»
- The teaching method and the labs.»
- All of it, nothing should be changed.»
- David and Johns lectures »
- The eight laborations and David of course.»
- The video and the lecture style.»
- Just about everything. The labs were well made and tested any essentials, exam was well written, exercises and lectures really good... Keep everything.»

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Exercises»
- Easier exercises.»
- It"s preferable to transfer this course to the first study-period»
- Book some rooms a few times a week for lab work.»
- don"t know»
- The first few lab assignments were perhaps a tad easy and although it was great to be guided towards functional solutions of the problems the hints were sometimes a bit over the top.»
- Google group could be dropped. »
- I would like the course to follow the literature more closely, or vice versa. As it is now it feels like you need multiple books with much shared content.»
- Some modifications on the slides in order to make things clearer.»
- Nothiing»
- The lecture on GTK wasn"t that good.. He started 15 min late and rushed through the subject so we where done early. So next year take it a bit slower and explain mor about eatch thing rather than just looking up the syntax.»
- I would"ve liked to have some lecture time spent on going through last weeks lab, to see how you could have solved it in different ways.»
- Maybe one exercise session each week.»
- The assignments should be reduced.»

17. Additional comments

- After concurrent one of the best courses?»
- Dave is a very good. One notices that he cares a lot that we learn.»
- Great!»
- I am not fond of the forced group hand in system as I had the bad fortune to get stuck with a fellow that did not contribute all that much as such he got an easy ride through the course, and I find it unfair that he passes the labs on what essentially is my work.»
- Very well structured course. I was only on two lectures since a conflicting course but they were both excellent. And due to the good structure there was no problem to learn the contents of the course from home.»
- slow than the course pace»
- Merry Christmas!»
