Abstract: Let $A$ be a representation-finite algebra. We show that a finite dimensional $A$-module $M$ degenerates to another $A$-module $N$ if and only if the inequalities $\dim _{K} Hom_{A}(M,X)\leq \dim _{K} Hom_{A}(N,X)$ hold for all $A$-modules $X$. We prove also that if $\operatorname{Ext}_{A}^{1}(X,X)=0$ for any indecomposable $A$-module $X$, then any degeneration of $A$-modules is given by a chain of short exact sequences.
