- Var för mycket material vi hoppade över kändes det som. Hade hellre gått igenom mindre men i större detalj. Iofs, om detta var en överskådningskurs av qft så var den bra, men tror nämligen inte den var ämnad för det. (Quite negative)

- I think that some of the homework were beyond the abilities that we were suppose to learn at the course, for example problem 5 in HW1 and problem 5 in HW 3. And the A grade is very difficult to reach in this way, since it is at 90% of correctness. (Very difficult)
- Difficult to solve on my own, had to find material which helped to solve the problem or get help from classmates, otherwise, I was pretty lost. (Difficult)
- 1 och 2 var okej. 3 var på tok för svår, eller snarare om material vi in diskuterat tillräckligt mkt om. (Difficult)

- I was pretty unprepared for my first trial, was difficult to know what to know, i.e. what kind of questions there would be. (Average)

- I would prefer some kind of summary och simplified descriptions of topics, e.g. definitions and examples. Some concepts were quite abstract when explained in the book, when there was no example given. (Very good)
- The course litterature lacks examples and maybe variations of these examples. Even though this course is heavy on the theory, some examples with solutions might be helpful to help and understand the content. For examples both the solution to the pion in the kg chapter and The kg paradox are good examples with both applications and decent solutions. (Average)
- The books first 4 chapters are very good. I found chapters 10-13 difficult to understand. Chapter five was a quite nice introduction to what was to come. (Average)
- Läste Greiner, Peskin och din bok och tillsammans fungerade de bra. Din bok kanske var lite kortfattad men var inte mer än att slå upp motsvarande kapitel i någon annan bok om man ville ha mer kött på benen. (Average)

- its very nice to know (Good)


Please, enter any further comments on the course below.

- Good course! I should have studied a bit more in order to enjoy it more, I think.
- The course is very large. I would very much prefer if this course went over period 3 + 4 instead of just period 3. Either that or perhaps cut out the last part of the course (perturbation).
- Lectures perhaps not so inspiring, but the material was presented
