Ver y good and informative . I think it was up to the right standard . Sometimes with a group of pupils it is quite hard for the lecturer to get a common level of experience , but this time I think he was lucky , as we were all I think of the same level of experience or knowledge . I thought it was a great idea to have these 'projects' to do during the class .
