- Lecture slides pdf:s were badly linked with lecture descriptions (and similarly for exercises).» (Rather badly)
- Please add some guidance to what the different lecture notes contains. Since they are passwordprotected its not possible to use google to search all pdf. If looking for a certain topic you might have to traverse all pdf files before finding the slides you"re looking for.» (Rather well)
- I would like the dates to be in the lectures tab of the course web page. Also the deadline for the report was rather hard to locate.» (Rather well)
- Although Pingpong system is best and has many other features which the current webpage is lacking. » (Rather well)

- The template for lab report 1 should have been handed out earlier. We got a resubmission because we did not follow the template which were out just one day before we handed in our report.» (Rather well)

- Thought it was going to be a lot better..» (Fair)
- Updating is necessary. The book feels outdated and not worth the money. Better to have no book at all and just have papers and articles. Time to update SHARPE since it is still being developed, has a nice GUI now and everything. Silly requirements and comments on the reports such as that the template was not followed etc. After all the quality of the template and its figures was poor and the template was not uploaded early enough. » (Adequate)
- I liked this course. Lecturer made the topic interesting and was easy to understand.» (Good)

21. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Lab and slides, exercises.»
- The labs.»
- The exercise classes.»
- Labs were good but need updating. »
- The labs were nice, start the earlier next year though! »
- The laboratory classes. »
- A large amount of group exercises was very good. This should definitely be preserved!»
- Some of the guest lectures.»
- Even due I did not attend many lectures, I liked the concept of repetition and informing about the lectures. E.g what going to happen next lecture and what to read.»
- The beautiful teaching assistant~ All of us like her~~ Kidding.. Actually she teaches very clear and I get large help from her lessons.»
- The articles especially, most things was very nice in this course.»
- Exercise sessions»
- Everything»
- everything is fine»
- The guest lectures.»
- The teaching assistant is very patient and kind. »
- Lab sessions and exercises and Negin!»

22. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- None.»
- Some more exercises with complete solutions would be nice to be able to see how certain things are calculated.»
- Not so many thoretical question about things outside the coursebook (i thought that it was way to many articles as a complement to the book)»
- Less extra reading material / course litteratur. »
- The report seems unneccessary and did not in any way aid my learning. Would"ve preferred not to have to do the report. »
- Update, update update.»
- The solutions to the theory questions on the exam should be presented. At least some examples so that the students know how much to answer and how specific we need to be. »
- Gripen lecture. And no more Sharpe!»
- Too many "introductions". I wish there would be more content in detail.»
- The exercises should be treated in low tempo»
- Little emphasis on taxonomy paper»
- None»
- The exercise could be made more interactive. The assistants should be more proactive in getting feedback from the students in order to understand what is difficult for them and focus on that. Not just prepare something before and just presented. »
- The course had less reference to the software part of the industry. The application of the subject in software field would make the course more relevant to the masters programme of computer systems and networks.»
- the structure of the exam, too many things are about theory.»
- The excercise lectures. The teacher were totally stressed out and went through the excercises in a far to high speed. I just felt that she were streseed to get home och something like that. Use the 2h scheduled time and not a minute less, WITH the actual break. »
- It could be clearer that questions on the articles in the reading guidelines will appear on the exam. This could be informed earlier.»

23. Additional comments

- None.»
- Feels a little bit like I learned FTCS V1.0 but the industry is using V2.0.»
- When reading the report for the laboratory class 1 and giving back comments, the tutors should really know what the PM say. If there is a demand to have plots for 4 years, this must be clear in the PM, because it is not wrong tp have it over an other time period if the result is still the correct one. Also, lab assistants should not make us change parts due to grammar or words when there is nothing wrong in those parts. The demands on the report are wierd and we got feedback that was, well, wrong. However, we also got some good feedback so it was not that bad.»
- Creds to Negin for being excellent at the exercises!»
- Very good course»
- None»
- None»
- none»
