有BAFS底絕對輕鬆,同頭兩課Acc一樣
Midterm上網搵question bank背答案入去
Project只要有EF人carry,做得夠多就得
Exam都係背mc,長答操下question bank

Assessed Tasks:
10% In-class participation (都唔知有冇)
10% Assignment * 1
20% Presentation (incl. Peer Rating)
20% Project Report
20% Robot Demo (incl. Peer Rating)
20% Final Open-note Quiz

Group Project 為主既 GE course
第一堂, Instructor 會主動提同學仔試下搵唔同既 partner
分組 5 - 9 人, 唔可以全組人都係讀同一類別 major 既同學
比如全組人都係 engine 仔, 或者全組人都係 business 女

Project 分兩部分: Robot + Research Report

Robot: 要砌一個 EV3 既機械人
Research Report: 揀一個題目係同機械人有關, 做成個 Sem

係呢個 course, 識到好 Group mate 相當重要
唔識揼 code 既, 可以幫手砌 Robot, 寫 Report 或者拍片/剪片都得

個 course 好 chur, Instructor expect 每組同學個個禮拜都要有掂過個 Robot
作為返緊 placement 既同學, 表示後半 sem 個個禮拜要夜晚掂個 EV3 program 表示好辛苦

雖然拎到呢個 grade 係純粹好彩 ...
但係奉勸各位想讀呢個 course 既同學, 唔想咁 chur 既話唔好 reg 呢科 ...

Quiz小難50條mc,mean係32條
Project 8個人一組,剩係15mins present+ppt唔洗report。
Final就mc+sq,比重無記錯係50 50

如果有讀過finance既話 可以話輕鬆a range,project workload細,inclass exercise可以自己係屋企做都得,差唔多落堂佢canvas就會開assignment。

(year1非BBA學生,但有BAFS底)

in-class assignment(10%) : 毎堂都會有,而且時間極緊逼,好多時要答唔少野,但有時純計數題唔太難,試過滿分,有時tutor仲會只要交左就比full marks(因為時間真係好唔夠......),今個sem有8次in-class只計最高分5次。

quiz(15%) : 即係midterm,難度較高,有50題MC,有formula sheet但要自己記毎條formula有乜用同毎個代數係乜,本人只有30分剛好係mean個分(30.2)。

group project(25%) : 15分鐘present,一組有7-8人,有一篇文講述一個人的財務狀況、對理財的看法和將來的目標,首先要分析他的財務狀況(財務狀況表2份、套用formula),然後指出他對理財的誤解,最後比建議和實際的financial products,頭2parts毎組大同小異,最後要自己做好research,要盡量幫他實現目標(或解釋一些目標為何不能/難實現)。
自問research做得嚴謹,見tutor好似會一面聽一面用手機search,要注意時間,唔少組講唔晒被強制cut。
分兩個week做present,建議無信心可以簡第二個星期先做,第一個星期可以參考其他組present,題目一様。
group project難唔難並唔太好講,畢竟出左grade都無出group project個分,工作量唔太大。

exam(50%) : 25MC + 4short Q + 1structure Q,MC部分問題問得較仔細,ppt無記唯有靠運氣,MC後有計數題有文字短答,計數題想有分一定要清楚理解formula sheet。
雖然有比一份同exam一樣模式的practice,但exam難度高成個level,本人MC後有大概一半分題目留空,但成績同group project一様出左grade都無出個分......

建議有BAFS底可以報,唔少内容已經學過。
依科好實用,學到野可以應用係日常,即使無Finance底都推薦一試,其實同BAFS重疊嘅concept同formula都唔難讀。

首先每堂都有inclass assignment要做,平均2-3條計數題,有上堂睇note唔難答。不過千其唔好睇小呢D assignment分,分分鍾拉多個grade。

之後今年有mid term(50題MC),個陣冇溫過入去靠common sense都有31/50,啱啱好過mean(30),後面會有formula sheet,不過要記得D符號代表D咩,同埋有D式都係要自己記。

接下來的group project都幾容易,有一篇文章(200-300字),裹面會有一個人的財務狀況同佢未來的目標,等大家建議一個financial plan比佢,每part workload唔多,不過建議financial products個part會麻煩D,因為你要去搵一D現實的financial products比佢。其實跟返note去分析唔難,不過要小心present個陣唔夠時間。(好似得10分鐘)

最後final呢part(25條MC,4條short q再加一條structure question),個人認為MC都係冇咩特別,同mid term差唔多,不過考的chapter唔同,反而short Q有D難,開始考應用而唔係死背式,structure Q做過project的唔會有咩難度,不過要留意細節位。

有finance底或者讀過DSE BAFS會輕鬆D,因為有D內容同formula以前學過。

It is a very inspiring course that encourages us to start personal financial planning early for achieving the goal of financial freedom. The course is so practical that covers various aspects closely related to our daily life such as investment, housing, insurance, retirement and so on.

Individual assignment (20%): compare different credit cards and write a reflection on an article you selected about personal finance
It is not difficult. Just do some research about credit cards. Relate the selected article with what you have learnt in the course.

Group project (30%): provide a financial plan for the client in the case study
You should start to do it early since you need to spend much time on doing research in different aspects such as mortgage, health insurance plan and mutual fund. Assuming the project as a real case, you need to consider some realistic situations such as inflation, having kids after marriage and change in MPF after job promotion. After finishing the project, you will know more about how to make a sound financial plan.

Exam (50%): MC and long questions
The questions are quite straightforward. Put more effort into memorizing the concepts. Also, make sure that you understand how to do the calculations.

Stephanie is passionate about teaching and very well-prepared for the lectures. She provides lots of examples in daily life and sometimes shares her own experience. It does not only make the concepts more understandable but also make the lectures become more interesting. She teaches us numerous practical skills that can be applied in both the group project and our daily life.
Besides, she is very friendly and helpful. Since I am a science student, most of the concepts in the course are quite new to me so I usually have many questions to ask. She is always willing to help and give me some useful advice like suggesting some books and websites that are useful for me to learn more.

This course is highly recommended, especially for those who are not business students. You can be equipped with lots of useful knowledge after taking the course.

There are two assignments and an exam in this course. I am majoring in accountancy and find this course quite useful in planning for your own asset portfolio. I am honored to get the highest marks in both assignments so in turn getting the A+.

1) Individual Assignment (20%)
Mean 14.x Highest 18.x
It requires you to do a self reflection on a news related to finance. Any topics would be fine. But make sure you write more and include some other references such as graphs and charts about related concepts (e.g. time value of money). Not difficult to get marks above mean.

2) Group Project (30%)
Mean 23.x Highest 28.x
It requires you to draft a personal financial plan to a client which have some misconception on some saving/investment issues. You need to comments on his financial statement (cash flow statement, balance sheet, income statement) and his spending/saving behavior before you suggest ways for him to improve. You need to work on several planning such as insurance planning, tax planning, investment portfolio, etc. Better to search more real products and more content to enrich your financial plan. We wrote around 60 pages and spent around a week on it. Pay more effort as the group project will make your group stand out.

3) Exam (50%)
MC is generally not difficult with around 3-5 tricky questions. Long question is not difficult if you are allowed to use a financial calculator. We have formula sheet to be provided so the questions require you to apply the formula more than memorizing stuff. If you are familiar with the calculation and have a look on all powerpoint slides, it only takes you about an hour to finish the exam. Lots of people leave earlier.

Stephanie is quite nice and willing to share her own experience to us. We learn a lot of new terms which may not be heard in other courses (unless you study in finance major). Study in summer semester is quite harsh if you do not plan your time well (I am one of the deadline fighter-.-). It really takes some time to do a practical and feasible financial plan for the client.

(Non-BBA, but reged CB2100 before)

The course is not hard in the contexts. With a lot of dimensions to learn and weird classifications of the knowledge, you should not expect to know how to create a full map for this course.

PMF related report and research - average grading
Group Project - Same material for every group and average grading

Final Exam is a bit harsh as there are a lot of things about insurances (should be around 30%) which is not well-stressed. If you unluckily happen to do something stupid in the calculation prob, you should get 1 to 2 small grade less than your grpmates.

Steph is not going to teach this course again in a period of time.

as a computer science student, i found this ge course very useful as the course content covers different areas of managing personal finance(saving, budgeting, credits, mortgage, investment, retirement)

this is not an easy course for non-business students since it is a bit too technical, but hard work will help

slides are information, but sometimes lack detail, Mr Ho's explanation during the lectures do help one to understand them

mc questions are tricky to test if you really master the course material, be careful

getting a B grade is better than my expectation, thanks to my group mates

There are four parts in this courses:
Quiz
Assignment
Group project
Exam
Quiz is quiet difficult , even though I am BBA student , I only got 37/50(A grade)
Assignment (full marks), better find someone who have studied this course and give you resources
Gp-our group consulted Mr.Ho for many times, he is nice and smart, every time he can answer our questions and give meaningful advices. If you are hardworking and consult him frequently, you will get a good grade.
Exam-very hard! Some calculations even we haven’t learnt in class! If you have a good business sense, you can reg this course. If not, good luck!

in-class assignment after lessons, quite difficult and time-limited
if you have great time management and work hard, you can prepare well for mid-term and exam
it is not a good option if you want to get a good grade easily and effortlessly

首先Ho Wai Ho人很好,上课各种谈笑风生,比一般的老师不知道高到哪里去了。下课时候问他问题,即使对内地生他也很愿意用英语为我们答疑,还表示他虽然能听懂普通话,但是不会说。不过如果用广东话提问则是更好,也是显示对老师的尊重。老师水平很高,上课各种讲解也很详细
每节课上都有in-class assignment 但是好像也没有打分
Mid大家分都不高,Ho Wai Ho最后是按分数档打ABCD,给的可以说是很宽泛了,错一半的题都有B拿
Group Project要拿高分的话workload很重 但是愿意下功夫的话是可以拿比较好看的分数的
Final我自认是几乎没有复习的,选择题考的很详细,没有认真看ppt根本就不会做,不过后面的计算题倒是很简单,估计大家都能做对
总之老师人很好,给分也不错。听说以前给分很垃圾,现在看来是大有改善的,没有很多内地学长说的那么恐怖,其实他们很多人根本也就没有上过这门课
