Relative merits of Byzantium & EQL
But also strongly expressed preferences for EQL:
"EQL because it teaches and explains well."
"I prefer using EQL. Its much simpler, Byzantium is not detailed enough and doesn't have much material that will be covered in the exam."
EQL as it reinforces the stuff you've read from the textbook. I find Byzantium quite useful too as it shows which part in the calculations you're going wrong."
Thus it can be seen that the different packages seemed to be preferred for different reasons by different students.
Several students specifically indicate that both were useful.
