- Jonas, you are an excellent lecturer. You plan your lectures very well and you are always prepared. The difficulty of the lectures is well-weighted and you are not late to adjust to the students needs and wills. I especially like that you are so humble when answering questions. Keep up the good work! (Very good)
- J?ttebra och intressanta f?rel?sningar! (Very good)
- Very good lecture notes! (Very good)

- Sadly most of the time I was double-booked during the tutorials, hence I didn't attend very many of them. But the little I saw was good. (Good)
- M?nga av ?vningarna var inte s? bra. Dom k?ndes v?ldigt ostrukturerade. Man var ganska f?rvirrad n?r man gick d?rifr?n. (Bad)
- way too unprepared and unorganized (Very bad)

- Sometimes it is hard to follow what Gasiorowicz does but overall it is a good very compact textbook. I do not prefer Griffiths due to his lengthy outlines. (Good)
- somewhat short on some subjects (Good)
- Jag skulle f?redragit Griffiths. Det k?nns som Gasiorowicz f?rlorade fysiken lite bland allt r?knande n?got som Griffiths inte g?r. Det materialet som Griffiths inte t?cker skulle man kunna l?mna ut som ett kompendium. (Good)
- I think the current set-up is good. Compared to Griffith, Gasiorowicz is very mechanical and lacks some of the flavor of the former, but I still prefer it for its compactness. (Good)
- I feel like they complement each other, sometimes Gasiorowicz explains something better and sometimes Griffiths does a better job at that. (Good)
- The textbook is sometimes a bit too brief, and some parts need a bit more explaining in order to make the reader fully understand. (Good)
- I have not tried Griffiths, but I found it difficult to read up on a lecture which I had missed on my own only reading Gasiorowicz. (Bad)
- Too brief, Griffiths was easier to digest. (Bad)
- Would prefer a book with more examples. (Bad)
- yes. it made things complicated for being simple. it also skipped a lot of proofs and that did not explain several concepts. (Very bad)

- do it more difficult and don't go through modern physics again. (More than enough)
- The course in modern physics gave a nice introduction and took off where the above course ended. (Enough)

- First seven chapters where quite easy. Chapter 9, 10, and 11, where quite average, but the rest of the chapters I found quite difficult and most of Gasiorowicz outlines where messy and non- physically explained calculations. (Difficult)
- actually it was more difficult than average but I find the average course easy. (Average)
- The first part of the course was not that hard since we knew a lot of it already, maybe not to that extent but still, it was familiar. The second part was a little harder. (Average)

- I would have wanted to spend more time with the material to really learn it by heart but this period has been really stressful. (Somewhat more)
- shouldn?t there be an alternative like "about the same"? (Somewhat more)
- Tog lite mer tid ?n andra kurser men det var bara f?r att ?vningarna var d?liga. Man fick helt enkelt r?kna om dom n?r man kom hem. (Somewhat more)
- I guess more, but I'm not sure, maybe you just studied this course because this was the most interesting of the ones we had at the time. (Somewhat more)
- same. (Somewhat less)

- i was sick. (?)
- I hadn't really expected the exam to be so difficult compared to previous years. Due to three exams three days in a row, strategic study was the only possible way to survive this periods exams. Thus I was disappointed that there were one extra question which was very difficult and in addition the grade limits where moved the same amount as the extra question was worth. Would at least have been nice to know this in advance. (Very difficult)
- the last question was difficult since there we never really went thorugh addition of angular momentum very well. (Difficult)
- F?r m?nga och sv?ra problem p? 5 timmar. ?terspeglade verkligen inte tidigare tentor. Antingen borde man tagit bort ett problem eller haft 6 problem men lite enklare s?dana. (Difficult)
- It was harder than the previous ones! (Difficult)

Did this course enhance your interest in physics ?

Yes10 83%
No2 16%

- Absolutely, Quantum physics is really interesting:) (Yes)
- i got very interested in the field of quantum mechanics and i think i?ll take at least one more course within it. (Yes)
- Yes, this was one of the most interesting courses I have taken at KTH. (Yes)
- the same as before (No)
- It is a very mechanical course and mainly deals with the mathematics of QM rather then the phenomena. Though i suspect that the second half of the course might change my opinion. (No)
