- The only negative thing about the course would be the book. (Quite postive)
- intressting topic, but according to the bad book we studied a bit too much special cases and not the deep structure theory. everything was a bit too phenomenological for my personal taste. but after all it was a nice lecture.. (Quite postive)

Mostly unnecessary overlap0 0%
No overlap2 33%

- Some overlap with 5A1386, but since part of that material was presented in a different way in this course, I think that this was mainly a good thing. (Some overlap, but it was useful to go over the topics again)

- Number one and three were easy. Number two was harder, mainly because the book doesn't give enough information that can actually be used, and the theoretical parts are too much hand-waving. (Average)

- Too much hand-waving and not enough explanations to give a good explanation of the subject. The most important improvement for this course would be to switch to a "real" modern text book. (Poor)
- I thought the book was quite difficult,I would have preferred a longer book with more explanations, examples etc. It would have been nice to have the theory derived from "first principles" to really understand what is going on. (Poor)
- PLEASE! change this book! it?s so bad! the cruical parts are not useful at all! all that i really understood within this course, i learned in other books... (Very poor)

- Followed the material in the book, but improved it in some places. Good use of black board and computer based presentations. (Good)
- the problem with the lectures: they follow the book. and the book ist very bad. so it's impossible for the teacher to give a really good lecture. this is a pitty, because it's a good speaker and the lectures could be good! (Average)
- The lectures followed the book quite closely - would have been good to have more detailed derivations, examples. (Average)


Please, enter any further comments on the course below.

- Very interesting, difficult course.
