Students were overall satisfied with Professor Reid's teaching methods, and found his notes and colourful figures helpful in understanding concepts. However, although students found the labs interesting, students felt that the labs should be explained in further detail. In particular, the lab report guidelines were unclear, and as a result students found the evaluation of the reports unfair.

Students appreciated Professor Giri's style of teaching and the way he communicated concepts clearly. The drawings that he made on the black board were of tremendous help. However, they felt that there was an obvious lack of communication between the Teaching Assistants and the professor. The lab manual was too vague and was in need of revision. Students also preferred to see a marking scheme for formal lab reports and equipment that works in the lab. Students also would appreciate if the full 50 minutes of lecture time was used up.
