- perhaps it would be good with a few more questions about the home problems at the oral exam.» (Yes, definitely)

- Good book » (Large extent)

8. Did we spend too much time on electro-/magnetostatics (chapter 1-5) / would it have been better to move more quickly to the advanced material (chapter 6 and beyond)?

- Yes, I would have liked to get into the more advanced stuff earlier»
- I think so. In the beginning it was maybe to similar to the course in the second year at the engineering physics program.»
- No, even though we (F) have had a course in electromagnetic field theory I think it is nice to repeat and freshen up electro and magnetostaics. It is important to master the basics before you move on with more advanced stuff.»
- No.»
- No we did not and no it would not have been better. Even though I have taken a similar course before I still needed the repetition and it would have been very difficult to understand the more advanced material if we had not gone through the basic material so carefully. »
- a little faster would have been better»
- I dont know»
- No. Since my previous course on electrostatics was pretty bad I was pleased we spend much time on statics which increased my understanding greatly. »

- No problem with the home page but more feed back on our home problems is desired. Only four home problems were given back before the oral exam. » (Rather badly)
- Missade man en lektion stod det ibland på hemsidan ett helt kapitel i Jackson, medan det som gicks igenom endast var en tredjedel eller hälften. Att ta ikapp en enda lektion tog drygt 8h studier, utan att titta på inlämningen.» (Rather badly)
- As a student at GU it was a bit difficult to find it, but that could have been because I have never used Chalmers" "studentportal" before.» (Rather well)

- Unbelivable heavy. To have such hard assignments to every lecture was too much, way too much!» (Poor)
- I would have liked to see more of the later chapters in Jackson» (Good)

15. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Most of the hand-in problems were fun and illuminating.»
- The book.»
- Form of examination, content and literature. The number of home problems is reasonable.»
- The text book is very good and should be preserved. Also, the first chapters of the book should be gone through carefully next year as well.»
- the introduction to electrostatics and magnetostatics is a good thing but perhaps should be more briefly»
- The literature»
- the oral exam»

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Scale down the magneto/electrostatics a bit to allow more dynamics and relativistic considerations.»
- Would be nice with more focus on the physics rather than deriving all formulas in the first chapters.»
- »
- En fråga per föreläsning, inte 2st. Att ha två stycken till torsdag, fredag respektive måndag fick många i kursen att tröttna / må dåligt.»
- Perhaps there should be fewer hand in assignments? »
- too many hand-ins per week»
- The assignments! It was a kind of good idea to have problems due to each lecture, but many times there were more than just one at a time + they were to demanding! Perhaps it"s a better idea to have one, or at most two, of the assignments each week. »
