Today, there is a wide range of techniques to support software comprehension. However, we do not fully understand yet what techniques really help novices, to comprehend a software system. In this paper, we present a master level project course on software evolution, which has a large focus on software comprehension. We collected data about student’s experience with diverse comprehension techniques during focus group discussions over the course of two years. Our results indicate that systematic code reading can be supported by additional techniques to guiding reading efforts. Most techniques are considered valuable for gaining an overview and some techniques are judged to be helpful only in later stages of software comprehension efforts.
