- Bra urval av inneh?ll i kursen och mycket pedagogisk presentation. Jag har f?ljt en st?rre GR-kurs p? SU och den var ocks? mycket bra, men mer matematiskt upplagd. (Very positive)
- short but worth-taking (Positive)


What was best with the course?

- Bra urval av inneh?ll i kursen och mycket pedagogisk presentation, vilket beh?vs f?r det sv?ra stoffet. Speciellt introduktionen, kr?kta rum och Einsteins f?ltekvation presenterades p? ett bra s?tt.
- I finnaly understood the tensor formalism, which didn't happen last year, when I tried to take the course in my Home University.
- small number of students

What was worse with the course?

- Skulle ha beh?vs mer tid f?r exempel p? tensorr?kningarna, eller mer ?vningstid.
- Since it's only one period, there's no big time to get used to the new formalism.
- too short

Did you find the course meaningful

- Jo, jag begrep lite mer om GR, ins?g hur lite jag visste och f?rstod.
- Yes.

- Skulle ha beh?vts ?nnu mera av ?vningarna, t ex med flera konkreta ber?kningar p? Schwarzschild-l?sningen. (Very good)


What did you think about the different literature suggested on the home page?

- Hur ?nnu inte sett en riktigt pedagogisk bok om GR, som man kan l?sa fr?n p?rm till p?rm och f?rst?. Det blir som historien om Eddington: "Prof Eddington, ?r det sant att bara tre personer i v?rlden f?rst?r Einsteins allm?nna relativitetsteori?" fr?gade en journalist. "Vem ?r den tredje," svarade Eddington.
- I thought it was good since it would give different approaches to the subject.
- Carroll's book is great

Which kind of examination forms would you prefer?

- Tentorna p? SU hade ?ven ett antall l?tta po?ngfr?gor som komplement till de sv?rare r?kneuppgifterna.
- I couldn't attend the exam due to sickness so I'm not sure what is being asked.

Any suggestions of improvement, or any other comment you would like to add

- Skulle vilja f?rst? mer om sambandet mellan rum-tid-kr?kning och planetbanor och ljusstr?lar, t ex.
- the thing is, for SR, basic knowledge is enough for any fields, we might not get into too much detail, but for GR, even it's covered all important thing, we will soon forget them if we do not use it. For me, I learnt GR before, even just selfstudy, this course reminded me important aspects and resolved many confusions, I think it's very meaningful to me, but for others, I do not think such short time course will make a big sense of GR to them.
