- too detail lab guidance sometimes is not good. it makes the disturbance of the "big picture" of that lab. each lab PM should be ~3-4 pages at most. students need to put the effort of thinking how to use the tools. of course it will take more time, however we can study the tool better.» (Good)

- We had time to see, reflect, ask and understand the demonstrated problem rather than putting lots of time on the administration part of ordinary labs. » (Good)
- The concept was well taught. It was really good» (Good)
- its content was interesting. however I did not remember much: just enjoyed the lecturer"s show time :) it"s better to be another student"s lab. why not, right?» (Adequate)

Genomsnitt: 1.53

- Feedback was a great help and it helped a lot» (?)
- it should be informed sooner about the 1-column report rule» (Yes)
- the feedback was not helpful with few exceptions. » (No)
- It would have been useful if atleast 75% of our mistake in lab report was pointed out in feedback. The feedback was not so good to correct all the mistakes in the final report submission.» (To some extent)
- Not much feedback but looking at my grade, maybe it was not needed and feedback for unnecessary improvement would just increase the work load.» (To some extent)

Genomsnitt: 1.71

- It really tested whether I had undestood the concepts in the report, maybe stretch it to 45 min. But maybe that will be too much for the teachers...» (Good)
- The point of the this exam was said to be "to check those who were NOT active in the labs or did not understood the labs" but I don"t think it gave that result. I think it was good for those who were good at expressing their thoughts in short and stressful time. If that would have been the point then ok no problem.» (Poor)
- The level of the oral examination to pass the course was really higher than expected, and that"s something that after doing all the labs and the reports it should be less important,also because after this you don´,t have enought time to prepare the sit exam.» (Poor)

- It is annoying when you get stuck with a lab partner who is not very good and slow. It does not feel right that I have to spend double the amount of time to make sure that he understands as well. Better with individual labs I would think» (Rather poorly)
- Best lab partner ever! The answer to this question depends very much on which lab partner you recieve.» (Very well)

- It is a rather complex subject with this mixed signal design even though the exam is open book the exams are really hard. It makes you not even want to go to the exam because you know you do not have a chance of increasing your grade. » (Good)
- This is very good course can make it compulsary course for embeddded electronic system design course» (Excellent)

Genomsnitt: 1.42

- the course subject, the teacher and the recitation are good but the labs, oral and the written exam needs to be improved.» (No)

31. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- All the lab sessions»
- Lab sessions I guess were rather good»
- recitation session on Mondays»
- Recitation, Individual Oral Exam, Feedback on Lab Reports, Demo secession »
- The good intro of sampling and transforms, better than in the Bachelor! Finally it fell into place.»
- Maybe the labs»
- Lab and recitation»
- labs , lectures, recitation»

32. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I would prefer individual labs »
- * Add more detailed info into the presentation slides so that they can help with the repetition later. * Remove the oral examination. * Add more different problems into the written exam. The exam was only about 4 problems (with sub-problems). Six or more problems would give more fairly picture of the course knowledge, as it is easier to fail with only few mistakes. »
- Individual Oral Examination should not only be based on Reflection Questions. Pattern of Lab sessions (Learning Outcomes and related information should be discussed in class prior to each Lab session)»
- Put up the recitation slides on Ping-Pong just as the lecture slides.»
- The way of examinate the oral exam and the lecture slides should be more complete.»
- may be it would be nice to submit one group report and individual reflection report.»

33. Additional comments

- I was happy with course.»
- None»
