- They were definitely a good way to understand the concept. Some concept were quite hard to get, so were the problems. (Difficult)
- especially the last one! (Difficult)
- Some problems were much easier (and/or shorter) than others, which I suppose is reasonable. However, the inclusion of problems (3 and 8 in problem set 1) which could be solved by litterally copying a segment of the book is strange. (Average)

- It is a good form of examination but it would be far better if they were a bit longer, say twice as long. (Good)

- Since the course book was said to be really bad, I used another book instead. (?)
- I think the Griffiths is a particularly good book to introduce oneself to the material. But sometimes it is not detailed enough. (Very good)


How were the lectures?

- Honestly, it was the best class I attended this year, congratulations! I particularly enjoyed the way the lecture was given, very professionally and with a lot of enthusiasm. (Very good)
- Most of te lectures were really interesting, but some were almost impossible to follow due to the fact they had been probably squeezed to fit the two-hours schedule. (Good)
- sometimes hard to follow...much to say in a little time... (Good)
- Of course, we need more time to understand the lectures. Some of theme were really fast and it's really impossible to get everything during the course. Sometimes, it feels we went a little bit too deep in the course, we should have gone through fewer things and got deeper to the essential . (Good)


How were the seminars?

- Really clever way to understand the lectures and explain with different words (Very good)
- The only reproach I can make is that often the seminars were just the exact copy of the lecture. It would have been more interesting to go deeper in the explanations or see some examples. (Good)
- good for a better understanding of the course (Good)
- I think there is a sort of imbalance between the lectures (really dense) and the seminars (sometimes really light). Maybe it would be good to cover more problems/questions in the seminars. (Average)


What do you think of the discussion seminars as a way of learning the course material?

- The course is very dense but the seminars help a lot with understanding (Very good)
- Maybe some exercices would have helped (Good)


Please, enter any further comments on the course below.

- The course would be improved if it were either spread over two periods or made lighter (by covering less subjects).
- very nice teachers!
- The cross section calculation are impossible !
- This was probably the best course I have read since I started at KTH. For the first time it seemed to be of more importance to really learn the topics than to just get the grades.
