- the assignments should be graded faster»
- Willard Thor Rafnson should try to give more constructive comments. He"s a fair lab grader most of the time, but in his return comments, he"s often not very precise about what he didn"t like and it can be difficult to get constructive feedback from him.»
- To have a easier first lab.»
- The first lab assignment is hard to get a grip of. Maybe have a bit more about that before the hand-in. »
