Professor: Kitagami Akiko
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
Professor: J.A. Saunders
Funny and engaging teacher.
Professor: Vivian Chu
hea lectures which are not necessary to get good grades, friendly lecturers and tutors
Professor: Dr. Jing Li
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.
Professor: Prof. K.W. Chow, et al.
Most if not all the lectures are pretty boring. You can just read from the slides yourself.
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.
Fun but need to read a lot to get a good grade, f2f tutorial
Professor: Dr. Clement Wong
First of all, take Clement's course and dodge Ping Yu. Ping Yu's english is more challenging to comprehend than the material. Many avoid Clement because of his multiple choice, but the difficulty is honestly exaggerated and not that crazy. The questions he sets are largely based on lectures so if you go to class and pay attention, you should find the questions to be okay and not hard to do well on. Lectures are very clear and complicated concepts are made easy to understand with good examples. Go to his office hours if you don't understand something, great mentor.
Professor: Dr. Henry NG
This course covers a lot of topics and most concepts need to be furthered researched on your own. You will have to spend a lot of time reading the textbook and memorize the definitions and concepts for the tests. As for the tutorials, I don't think they add anything to the overall course experience and some tutors have weird and strict marking rubic for the mini-projects. Research participation is fun but time-consuming.
Professor: Professor Greg M. Thomas, Ms. Nicole Fung
Good Professor and tutor
Professor: Karin L. F. Chau
Essay skills are very important, especially essay structure (introducing the theory and the purpose in the introduction)
Professor: Dr. Jinbao Li
Lecture slides are easy to understand so there's no need to attend lectures. Fair workload and grade for an introductory course. Learnt geography before may be an advantage.
Professor: Dr. Roger CK Chan
Lectures are boring but there are quizzes so u can't skip lectures, unbearable workload, busier than capstone courses, not recommended for lazy people looking for an easy A. Hardworking is very important
Professor: Larry Laum, P.C. Sham
I really loved the lectures themselves and my tutor! The tutor prepared us engaging lectures and games for tutorials. The only thing a very little heavy and hard for me was reading (not selfish gene but blank slate ...) but you'll do fine on quizzes if you spend some time reading them . Speak up during tutorials too
Professor: Prof. Dennis Y.C. Leung AND Dr. C.H. Liu
Prof Leung provides tutorials and more questions to practice and also numerical answer for past papers on the other hand Dr Liu doesn't provide tutorial and questions to practice except some past paper solutions.
Professor: Dr. Wong Paul Wai Ching
Lecturer is interesting.
Professor: Ka Fu Wong
did not study Econ in DSE. but Work hard on past papers and weekly assignments, you can pass the exam! Fighting! :) (btw, use graphing calculator!!!)
Reli not boring, quite fun and interactive. Swedish is quite similar to English, not difficult to learn!
Professor: Stefan Purwins
The atmosphere in class is very free and relaxing. Stefan is a very good teacher, will chat with you in class. Classes are interesting.
Professor: Dr. Lam
The lecturer and the tutors aren't killers and they are quite patient to answer questions.
Professor: Michael Wiggs
After turning to online teaching, the group speaking test is canceled and becomes an individual speaking test. The professor is easy going and friendly. The course is not that leng grade as many people got B range.
Professor: X.L. Tian
boring and demanding, on99
Professor: Larry Baum
Lecture is quite boring tbh
lab practical 攞90% 可以攞C攞D
Professor: Na Ke and Christine Woo
Hea dou PK
Professor: Prof. A.B. Djurišić
Interesting topic discussions, cool prof, nice tutors
Professor: Wang Aihe
Honestly, despite what others say about inspiring and what not (which I agree, it can be thought provoking), this course is VERY chur relative to other CCs. Weekly tutorials which you need to prepare for and in-class attendance is taken. Therefore, I chose to sleep in class because sometimes, despite the fact the lecturer is inspiring I suppose, is not always interesting. Reviewed alright amounts for final and got A-, but I honestly still feel a bit cheated for how much work this course had (even in-spite of sleeping in class), and I have a pretty decent background on Chinese history so expected better. Lesson is, pay attention, and don't sleep in class.
Professor: Ka-fu Wong
Ka-fu is one of the best lecturers at HKU, but he is also an asshole to students in class. Nevertheless, don't be afraid to ask him questions, he knows his stuff really well. If possible, also try to get a copy of his book (only some chapters are available on moodle, he does not publish the rest), as it details his thought process really well, and you will be an expert at how he thinks. I read it AFTER taking this course, and doing that made some of the things in the original course seem very obvious. Be careful and practice the past-papers well, especially the monopoly questions. The monopoly questions are always tricky but the answers are straight forward if you think smartly, which I didn't. Also, study the first two chapters (cost and benefit analysis+compar advantage) carefully, as they are very important to how Ka-fu thinks about econ and sets his questions. The grade curve is not as bad as some people say. I did terrible on mid-term final but still got B- so that says something. Try your best for his course, some of the stuff you learn can be kinda useful I guess (in terms of logical thinking).
Professor: Wat Kam-Pui, Gabrielle M. Jing
Dr. Wat is the best lecturer i've had at HKU, his knowledge is really insane, and he really will go in depth with you and explore the proof for each proposition. However, this means that the lectures will easily fall behind schedule which is bad. Nevertheless, you can learn A LOT and bring ur math/stat skills to the next level taking his course, so try your best and don't anger him. Speaking of which, he sends a lot of annoying emails (and he can send some encouraging ones sometimes too), and he is not the nicest guy, but I believe he means well with his emails and wants the students to do as best they can. In the end, the tests (and assignments) sett by Wat are f**ing hard. Wat Gor is super din when it comes to setting tests and his expectation is a bit too high for students and he seems unafraid of failing LOTS of students, so really do your best and you should be fine. The probability side he teaches is MUCH harder than the stat side taught by Gabrielle. Gabrielle's part is much easier no need to worry. You should focus on the probability side, since Wat gor puts a lot of big brain dnlm lan dou pk questions. Good course but taught by Wat means it can be kinda stressful.
Professor: Chan Yat-Ming
Dr. Chan is very good at explaining and lecture notes are very well constructed. On the other hand, his lectures do not go in depth relative to the test and finals - ala the classic teach easy test hard fok dou pk. The tests and final will be MUCH harder than the assignments (though some of the past test and exam questions are in the tutorials). To do well in the final exam, review the past papers and find the OBVIOUS patterns in the questions. The questions are set in a similar way for each exam - not exactly the same, but theres some similarities. Still challenging, but you can anticipate and prepare pretty well. The grade given is not too bad. Not the best given the difficulty, but not too bad either. Moreover, this course dosen't need too much problem solving skills (i.e. thinking). If you are good with algebra (can get somewhat challenging) and procedural systematic problem solving it should be no problem. Overall, Dr. Chan is a pretty jeng instructor.
Professor: Eulji Lee
The course content itself has no problem. But the teaching is far from satisfaction. The lecturer (eulji lee) seems to be unfamiliar with what she is going to teach, unable to explain herself with English and cause confusion to the students.
Professor: Dr. M.K. Yip
Test and exam are too easy. Half of the class get >80 in test. Need to be extremely careful to get A range.
Professor: Dr. May L Wong
important to attend lecture as she will explain the concept that is not shown on the power point
Professor: Dr. Sammy Fung
Sammy Fung was knowledgeable and the tutor Benson was quite helpful and funny. Also, the course include a non-compulsory site visit
Professor: Jeffrey Allen Saunders
The professor's voice is hard to hear. powerpoints are useful.
