17. Additional comments

- no»
- the tutorial should be more clearer»
- Great thanks to Ali Soltani and Behrooz Makki! Very interesting course!»
- unfortunately i should say that the style of the exam was not proportional to what was presented in the lectures and the purpose of the exam was to measure numerical calculation rather than testing the concept understanding.»
- During the exam, one question corrected at the last hour, this put me under pressure and stress that I could"t do well. And lecturer just said sorry, This is the most awful thing that I ever heard. How will be responsible for this huge mistake and my exam? I didn"t expect this from Chalmers.»
- TA was talking so boring that we barely kept ourselves awake»
