HKGS1001 Hong Kong's Long 20th Century

Shared by Anonymous

1 day ago

Professor: Pun kwok ling Lawrence HKGS2002

Jesus it is bad. Awful. He read out ppt and teaching has no focus. Don't reg HKGS2002 If its still Lawrence Pun teaching. Not interesting, not intellectually rewarding, not generous (actually is extremely strict) in grading, not remotely good in any aspect. If and only if you are a masochist and enjoy being fucked over and over, having your gpa going down down down, then choose him.

FINA3210 Risk Management and Insurance

Shared by Anonymous

2 days ago

Professor: Jason Yeh

很有趣並且人很好,不過這課會有10%participation,會隨機叫學生的名字來提問,因此如果學生有社交恐懼症或者不懂如何答題會很不舒服。另外,用ppt但是那個ppt有一個很吵,很難聽,很煩人的翻頁音效,每次聽到這聲音就讓我想去洗耳朵。有時候會講偏題,不過有時候也會提到一些現實生活中的例子,很生動有趣。這課還有3個quiz,其中一個是surprise quiz,不會提前告訴你什麼時候考,不過只抽2/3的quiz作為成績,所以也還行。

Good grade professor, just study the Assignments and Lecture Notes and you will get good grade. If you attend his courses (which you don't really have to since he tends to read aloud the lecture notes), you will find out that his favourite catchphrases are 'Remember to put a smile on your face:)' & 'Today is a sunny day' LOL

Professor: Liu Ngar Fun

The teacher gives nonsense feedback on presentations, messy notes (don't really know what you are learning), so basically feedback cannot make you improve (improve on your own). A very traditional teacher that only admires foreign students. In conclusion, pretty useless, not learning sth new, but can get not bad grades.

the teacher is quite chur during lesson, workload is not light, but the grade is fair. Although the teacher is chur, she gives constructive feedbacks and you could score high if you follows her comments. Just smile and speaks with lots of genki and try to use as much honorifics as possible then you will be able to gain good grade lol

LAWS1042 Contract II

Shared by Anonymous

2021-08-12

Professor: Prof. Alan Gibb

Prof. Gibb is a very well-structured and passionate teacher. He could answer any of our questions and provide help with our studies. He also posted detailed notes and revision videos which is very nice indeed. Yet, Prof. Mik, in comparison, most of the time told us to rely on the textbooks and cannot answer our questions. Her tutorials are, sad but true, useless because she encourages us to share our points and to rebut them on herself. She did not introduce us to the correct approach to tackle the scenario. We are left with more doubts after each tutorial.

Professor: Mr. Benjamin Malcom Thomas GAUDET

The professor created some useful ppt with voice clips which facilitated my learning. The voice clips saved my time to look up for french dictionary (voice clips may not be provided by other professors). He was willing to answer your questions too. However, the course might be a bit too demanding for people who didn't do well/ did average in FREN1000.

The professor was generous in giving grades (As long as you follow the instructions and work hard for it, you should get a decent grade). Also, he was super friendly and down-to-earth. He understood students' concerns and would always answer your question. Also, you don't have to worry about the exam because the professor would give you clear guidance on what you should write and how to achieve higher marks.

KORE1000 Korean I

Shared by Anonymous

2021-07-29

Professor: KIM Hee Sook

Summer semester Korean beginner class is not quite for beginners (as I have 0 knowledge of Korean before). Teacher tried hard to let us understand but can see that some of us are not able to catch up with it (she put too much time on the easy things and then the difficult ones she rushed so fast...). Can see around 6-8 of our classmates have basic knowledge. Seems that all teachers assumes that we can learn everything just the day we were taught as the time is really not enough to pack that much teaching materials together, and it is a 4 week class (got class every day and there is not much time for us to memorize/understand what actually happening...) The course is not welly organized and the study materials are disperse (things taught in powerpoint but quizzes from notes that we haven't gone through before..?) The workload is much much bigger than other language courses(just my experience such as French). Can learn something but the experience of the first summer semester is just like an unexpected nightmare for me(despair + tiring). Advice: think twice before you reg this class especially in summer semester:) need to be hardworking to catch up smoothly. Might be less harsh in normal semester;)

Teaching is about average. Alot of economic terms are introduced, so lessons can be quite confusing if you're not from an economics background. Have to do quite some readings on your own. The participation thing gets pretty damn annoying sometimes, where everyone asks and answers questions just to get marks.

MATH1851 Calculus And Ordinary Differential Equations

Professor: Prof. Y.K. Lau, Prof. K.W. Chow

Part 1 and 2 lectures with Prof Lau and Prof Chow were a nightmare; lectures were very dull and I had a difficult time understanding their speech. Consider skipping them altogether but study the lecture notes. On the other hand, tutorials were lifesaving. Both tutors are amazing at teaching, but unfortunately tutorials are only 1 hour a week they tend to skip some small parts on the lecture notes so please beware. But overall, it's a rather unsatisfying course.
