Most students felt that Professor Kandeephan needed to organize the lectures better such that she would not have to rush through the second half of the course (the tougher chapters). Some thought that the idea of quizzes at the end of lectures was not a good idea. Students would have liked to see the Professor respond to student queries sooner via emails. Nevertheless, some of the respondents appreciated Professor Kandeephan for her clear explanations of concepts and knowledge of this tough subject.

A number of students note that Professor Kandeephan drew extensively from the course text for in-class instruction but where some found this repetitive and boring others appreciated the opportunity to approach familiar material in another way. Most were very appreciative of her organized, methodical approach while some found it monotonous. Typically, students note this is a very challenging course.

Students were very pleased with Professor Kandeephan and felt she was responsible and fair in her conduct of the class. Most criticism was reserved for the laboratory element of this course, with many students commenting they simply didn't have enough time to complete their experiments, and a surprising number of complaints directed towards one TA in particular, under-scoring the potential disparity between lab work with the 'good' TA vs. work with the 'bad' one.
