Students in this course generally appreciated the content and the instructor, but had a few suggestions for improvement. A number of students suggested that less time be spent on material from previous courses that are required in any event to take this course, while others suggested a review of the required course materials, feeling the text and lab manual were too expensive and underutilized. Most agreed, however, that the course was worthwhile despite concerns.
