Overall, students felt that Professor Dalili?s lectures went very smoothly. Although her pace was a bit fast and she spoke a little too quickly at times, her lectures were well-organized and she explained the topics very well. However, some felt that outside of class she was somewhat unapproachable despite her many office hours, as one student described her as becoming impatient with students that did not understand her explanations immediately. As for the course itself, the general consensus was that the class time was much too early, and the labs were considered too crowded. Furthermore, there was concern over insufficient lab equipment while doing lab experiments.

Students found the instructor to be effective in making somewhat boring material interesting. Students thought however, that the course would be enhanced if there were tutorials added to the course in addition to the labs and lecture. The presentation of the material was at times difficult to follow, and could be greatly enhanced by the usage of digital presentations and more subject headings. In general, students were satisfied with Professor McClelland.
