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.

PSYC1001 Introduction to Psychology
Shared by Anonymous

2021-01-22

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: 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

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.

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.
