- 2 quastions on the last lection seem hard.» (To some extent)
- The exam contained some weird question (nr4?) where understanding the newly introduced syntax was the hardest part of the question and totally unrelated to the course. Previous years exams has had similar obscurities. 2009-10-23 q5: Weird boxes with ambiguous and confusing syntax totally unrelated to the course. 2010-10-21 q5: Assume the automata does not behave like an automata?!?!» (To some extent)
- However, the choice of questions were strange. The questions on observers and queuing were very unexpected, since they were covered briefly on the last lecture.» (Yes, definitely)

- Lectures follow the lecture notes very strictly. Not saying this is either bad or good. It can make it easy to skip lectures but can also make the lectures quite boring and redundant.» (Small extent)

- The exam examples came quite late.» (Rather well)
- There should have been a notification when the last handin had been corrected.» (Rather well)

- This course could be ridden of some definitions and proofs to get a more advanced course.» (Low)
- The other course on MPSYS made this one get "high". Not counting the other course, which I think you have to, it would have been Adequate i think.» (High)

- Overall it could have been more challenging and go deeper into the material of the last part, since I really found that interesting and definitely been worth more than 2-3 lectures.» (Adequate)
- I found the topic very interesting. I hardly think that I"m going to work with automation, but this topic seems promising in most fields.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Cheap literature.»
- The first hand-in.»
- The russian problem solving session guy. He was the most awesome thing with the whole course.»
- The way the courses are made.»
- Everything, really!»
- The home assignment»
- First hand-in was really good.»
- The first handin assignment.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Maybe do the course in a little higher pace.»
- More practical, real world, examples. Maybe some more advanced lab/handin where you perform static analysis on "normal" code or something instead of an arbitrary automata without any purpose whatsoever. Remove the stupid lab, especially for those that have made it before. It doesn"t reflect back to the course at all. If you could convert between sfc and automatas and performed reachability analysis etc it might have been interesting.»
- More focus on the hard stuff»
- Translate all the signals in the Kulbanelabb to English!»
- Nothing!»
- Second Hand-in assignment is too easy and could definitely be more challenging, as well as the lab.»
- There should be more about applying the theory in reality.»

16. Additional comments

- Great professor! »
- Bengt is pretty good at explaining things, but his english is a little flawed. I am fine with it though. The russian problem solving session guy was very good at explaining and helping out.»
