In general, students found Professor Grover to be very caring, and made the course at hand to be understanding. However, many students felt his exam did not reflect the same level of difficulty covered within the lectures. Students suggested that he should have more office hours, implement standardized quizzes for all tutorials, and post lectures and notes online.

Students in this course felt that a lack of preparation and organization contributed to various problems and difficulties, including lectures that were difficult to follow, notes that were not posted in a reasonable timeframe, and material covered in a way that did not mirror the other unit of this course, instructed by Professor Hill. While students appreciated Professor Butscher's enthusiasm and intelligence, several commented that they ended up relying on the textbook alone.

Students felt that some difficulties with this course were caused by a lack of communication between Professor Hill and Professor Butscher, who instructed the other unit of this course. Students found Professor Hill an effective instructor in terms of understanding and communicating the material, but felt his apparent lack of enthusiasm made him difficult to follow.
