CCGL9025 The Political Economy Of Poverty & Growth

Shared by Anonymous

2019-01-26

Professor: Prof. Y.C. Richard WONG

There are loads of reading materials for you to prepare, approximately 40 to 50 passages. Although there is not much assessment, that amount of readings and term paper together with the essay-based exam are killing you. Fortunately, the exam questions are very similar between years, you can choose to focus on a few of them and pick 3 out of 5 questions to answer. If you are very interested in and confident with economics, go for it. Otherwise, just pick another common core course will be the way.

LCOM1003 Theorizing In Communication

Professor: Dr Adrian Pablé

The course workload is very low-just one essay and a final test. Start preparing your mid-term essay early and do some research in advance. Revise after every lecture to clear up the concepts. Study for the test and your grade will be decent :)

JAPN1088 Japanese Language I (Part 1)

Shared by Anonymous

2019-01-25

Professor: Sasaki Sensei

***[IMPORTANT]*** The course will have >50% student who already know japanese like myself. I didn't revise and still get A because I was at the level that is able to communicate with native without any formal study. Listen, if you have NO or very little(what I mean by little is you only understand < 20% when a native is speaking) experience on japanese, you are KILLING yourself by taking this course. A lot of people with experience will accelerate the pace of the lecture so that you need to study really hard to catch up. But if you are experienced, welcome. You will enjoy the course. This is the case for Korean courses as well

You will gain a lot if you can teach yourself and find out all the mistakes in the slides by him. You will even gain more if you can master all in the text book and then go to the lecture and test yourself by checking out all the mistakes. And you can be a master in the course if you can make as many mistakes as him. (All above are really just jokes, do not believe that : ) ) Anyway, have a good dream at the course.

ENGL2079 Shakespeare

Shared by Anonymous

2019-01-16

Professor: Blumberg Frederick Laurence

The lecturer is incapable of teaching a class at all. His lectures do not have a focus; he merely rambles on and on, pretending to conduct a Socratic discussion by inviting students to comment, when in reality he is unprepared and does not know what he is teaching. His manners are unnerving and borderline creepy, making queer remarks over and over again.

UGFN1000 In Dialogue With Nature

Shared by Anonymous

2019-01-13

Professor: Yeung Yang

Yeung Yang is certainly good at facilitating discussion and inspiring you to think. I would recommend her especially to those who have a science background (e.g. taken science subjects in high school). She teaches in a "humanity" perspective, which is quite interesting (She does teach In Dialogue with Humanity at the same time). A possible drawback, however, is that she's relatively weak in science (it might be an advantage). Overall, she's very passionate, supportive, and caring. BTW she can speak Cantonese.
