MPUP5402 Comparative Public Policy

Shared by Anonymous

3 days ago

Professor: Professor King Kwun Tsao

For that semester, online teaching was used due to COVID-19. Online teaching is a relatively new teaching method and learning experience to both the professor and the students so it is hard to judge or evaluate Professor Tsao's teaching skills and performance. In general, Professor Tsao tried his best to ensure his teaching quality and he did a great job throughout that semester.

CHLT1200 University Chinese II

Shared by Anonymous

Professor: Dr. Law Yin Ling

Very humanistic and caring. She is distinct from many lecturers who would (sometimes solely) emphasize argumentation and logic when assessing your works. She encourages creativity and genuinely makes space for it (e.g. besides writing a serious essay and following rigid frameworks, you can express your opinions with a story, an allegory, or even descriptive writing with symbolic meaning). Her choices of the works covered in classes are wise with full awareness of our fear towards classical Chinese. She makes sure everything is meaningful, insightful, and digestible. Good interactions in class.

Professor: Jacqueline Wong

This is the first time I share my view on a professor because it's too poor not to be criticized. The course is totally useless, and the professor can spend 2+ hours endlessly talking but not actually bringing any new knowledge. Be sure to take it in summer semester as it's going to be a waste of your semester time.

Professor: Zhang, Wenrui

His lectures may be boring (but just try to contribute and pay attention). It is normal for the course to be boring since it's financial management after all. I got a really decent grade even after failing my midterm and getting below the mean. I strived my best efforts for my final exam. (I took this course online for 2020 Term 2). Just for your understanding, he is SUPER responsive in terms of emails. (Send him an email and he'll respond to you like a minute later). I LOVE WENRUI!!!

SOWK1113 Self-development in Changing Society

Professor: Dr. Ho Wai Ming, Hannah

Hannah is nice and there is room for adjusting the deadline if students need it. Lecture is chill for most of the time. But she would ask student to record the number of questions answered during the lesson for class participation mark. I don't like this kind of primary school mode of encouraging classroom participation which only looks at quantity not the quality of the discussion. For those who want to get a good grade but don't want to attend most of the lessons and compete with others to answer questions, this course may not be suitable for you.

COMP2011 Data Structures

Shared by Anonymous

2020-05-27

Professor: Cao YiXin

This class taught by this teacher has been so controversial. This guy teaches it regardless of how many complaints there are lol. But regardless, data structures is single handedly the most important class you need to nail in order to do well in this field. You learn to code and how to solve problems in a systematic way, which is basically the universal concept of COMP classes. But, if you struggle with it, it's normal and you just need to listen to supplementary lectures online and memorize algorithms. That right - if you can't think of it yourself, do yourself a favor and go on geeksforgeeks.com and memorize the code. Once you memorize a handful of algorithms, you'll probably realize that there is a pattern between them all. This will help you get through it. There's no shame in copying and memorizing code haha. Creativity only comes once you're proficient at something, so it's unfair to expect coding noobs to come up with original code for problems they've never seen before. Also, this guy gives out quizzes without notice, so just keep track of when he gives them out, bc there's also a pattern in that. It's usually every other week. As long as you don't piss him off, he shouldn't try to fail you on purpose.... which he has some history of doing :( Best of luck.

COMP3511 Legal Aspects and Ethics of Computing

Shared by Anonymous

Professor: Peter Ng

You would expect a class for legality and ethics would require you to think. But in this class, you can be a literal carrot and still pass as long as your carrot fingers can type up a report and copy paste ethic analysis templates. Just make sure your group mates are not cunts and actually help with the report. As long as they are willing to fill a document with smart sounding bs, you should be hypothetically fine.

Lecturer is bad at explaining. But since AI class itself if a buzzword with alot of hype, you can fill the knowledge gaps with youtube. Maybe even enroll in edX course to supplement the grading in this class. Unlike other classes where you need to know the lecturer's quirks, this class doesn't rely on you being in class to know how to solve problems a specific way.

Really fun and interesting teaching. When studying in COMP Polyu, you learn to expect subpar teaching where the lecturer themselves sound bored. But this lecturer has a track record of really good teaching with efficient and accurate explanations. I would recommend anyone to take his classes, regardless of what they are.

CCCH9005 The Chinese Cultural Revolution

Shared by Anonymous

2020-05-21

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.

ECON1210 Introductory To Microeconomics

Shared by Anonymous

2020-05-11

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).

STAT1306 Introductory Statistics

Shared by Anonymous

2020-05-11

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.

MATH1009 Basic Mathematics For Business And Economics

Shared by Anonymous

2020-05-11

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.
