22. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- You should really concern your teaching effort (prepare in advance, for instance!) and choise of course material»
- The lectures and exercises should be more coordinated and the teachers should go over the material that is presented.»
- Excercises: explain where you want to go and why before starting to calculate Lecture: more attention to some "rule of thumb" methodology would be nice. This is what is easy to remember »
- maybe a few more exercise tasks avaliable»
- lectures, exercises»
- Layout óf exercises»
- Maybe more time to study before the written exam. Or instead a written exam, a verbal examination would be maybe better. Concerning the exercices, I think that most of them were not really useful for understanding the lectures.»
