PS DSE Econ Level 4
I have economic background but still find this course not easy to handle.
I did quite bad in lesson assignments (they are quite hard, dont know if it's because I didn't pick up the DSE syllabus for years)
The course has new things other than DSE materials
I did revise hard for the 2 exams, especially the final exam (i almost lost half of the mark because of the long questions). Need to review hard, very very very hard and I mean it.
Our project is good, he praises our group, i suggest you consult him until he nods and agree with your idea, otherwise the project can kill your grade.
For your reference:
Exam 1(solely MCQ) 41/50 (already the highest one) mean is 31.1
Exam 2: unknown, 50% for 25 MCQ, 50% for one long question (which is complicated, or you don't know how to do then say goodbye to A range)
To conclude, I dont think this is a easy course to get A+ as others have said. To do so, a bit luck is definitely needed.
32%group work（要做presentation但不计分 final report记27%，comment记5%）
10%BI-WEEKLY JOURNAL （其实就是五份200字小作文）
group project 20%－30%
就算之前有讀大學程度嘅Micro Econ 都覺得唔容易，因為一來要溫多次，二來佢大部分課題之前嘅Micro Econ都係無詳細教 (e.g: externality, pollution charge, pollution permit, environment subsidy deposit refund system) 呢D課題都係base on externality 進一步延伸嘅。上唔上堂分別唔大，都係要自學，但係又唔可以唔上，要搵同學互簽計分。
test 佔50分係grading 嘅關鍵，個test考得唔好基本上成科已完。功課曉飛都無用。其他功課都唔係難做，present都唔計分，係report真係要花時間寫。
- 50% Final test,全MC
- 10% Biweekly journal
week 1-week 10每2個星期做1件對環保有幫忙既野
- 8% In-class learning activity
- 32% Group project
Week6要交group member list,
要寫abstract, problem, economic and non-economic solutions, 計埋ref 10頁內
不過都係果句,GE course又好,non-GE course又好
唔做野都算,最差係有唔care plagiarism,連ref link都唔留低既groupmate
上htm堂係悶d,好多人都做自己野,不過勝在佢唔會點理,讀econ concept唔洗點計數, assignments輕輕鬆鬆好快做得完
想真係學green econ野/無econ底既話reg ho wai ho會學得比較詳細
點都好, 1cred workload既3cred科,係抵讀既B-)
BBA students should choose Ho To Ming instead of Ho Wai Ho. Also, you should choose your teammates wisely. My first B-range or below GE courses lol.
呢科前半段比較多講econ theory （law of demand嗰類，主要係microecon）
1) dse micro econ既topics 50%
2)大學 micro econ既topics 30%
3)真係同green econ有關既model 20%
基本上所有野都係圍繞住demand supply, 只要你上足堂留心聽,就算無讀過econ都一定識.
我自己dse 有讀econ, 今個sem仲要讀緊cb既micro econ,所以真係好易上手, green econ果part都係簡單野 亦都幾有趣
1)final quiz: mc+2 short q:
mc基本上只係上dse level野, 極小green econ, 唔出大學level既micro野. 有讀dse會好高分 冇讀都一定識
short q都係dse野, 但比分既方法應該同dse唔同既
答既時候可以諗多小小, eg, 同一題,我有同學係就咁用demand supply同subsidy解釋 我就加埋externality同corrective subsidy.最後我係高分啲既
quiz係冇出文字上既環保既 所以唔洗背data definition果啲 不過係有出green econ既model既
unfortunately,我搵組員中左大伏, 一係蠢一係懶 基本上成個pj既ideas都係我出,比哂指引佢地寫份paper, 都係好垃圾, 不過因為份paper短所以我自己改得哂
3)bi weekly journal
好簡單, hea做就得 有交就full mark
同埋你會覺得真係好輕鬆 大部分野都學過 新野又好易明
冇讀過econ都好易有b, 要上堂囉, 不過workload都係輕既
所以如果你quiz只係過mean小小都唔會有a range 得b+
1)econ係要明先識既科, 冇得背冇得自學, 一定要上堂, 最好有唔明要即刻問,
2)唔好以為econ major就會係好project mate, 入得econ多數成積差, 同左個year4 econ major既做pj mate,人又懶又做唔到野又蠢 最唔掂就係佢
In my opinion, students with no basic economics background are not recommended to take the course if you aim at getting a good grade.
The course mainly focuses on the business part, and materials esp things we learnt is the latter weeks require you to digest it and understand the methods of calculating and drawing diagrams.
Dr. Ho is a really nice teacher and he tries to motivate the class to engage in the lessons through games and discussions.
There are 2 quizzes 1 group presentation. The first quiz is an mc quiz and the second one includes both mc and long questions. For the presentation, it is very important to show your creativity in the product design.
Good course and hard work pays off.
溫書亦唔係好有用因為佢題目出out syl（out syl部份係大學程度既微觀經濟課程）
In class exercise 唔係好識做 錯好多 可能係無溫書關係
Quiz okay 但都有d難
最後都A左 唔錯 無伏
Mr.Ho was an interesting tutor, who was gd at his teaching. Yet, the syllabus was way too difficult as a GE course. I personally scored a 5 in my DSE Econ. I do understand it is a university course; yet, the difficulty was beyond my imagination. I spent a very hard time to catch up with the syllabus and revising for the final close-book examination.
For those who are not BBA students MUST be cautious about this course. The workload is quite heavy, especially concerning the semi-weekly in-class worksheets, which were very difficult. I always couldnt finish them, not to mention finishing them accurately,
The group project topic requires you to come up with a new product, which requires high degree of creativity. I also had a tough time to try to come up with ideas that he gonna like.
The end of semester exam was very very difficult, involving some really technical Maths questions, which I totally didnt hv a clue abt it. So, really be vigilant, guys.
It was really luck for me to get an A-. I heard many ppl scored B or below.
P.S. I dunno y econ major students can enroll into this [email protected]@
成個course對讀過econ 嘅人黎講唔難,不過想拎a range 真係要俾D心機同小心D, 由其係份quiz, 佔成50%. 個grade 係depends on 你個quiz 做得幾好同溫得有幾熟.
group project 唔需要太認真去做因為你quiz做得差份project 都唔會救到你D咩.
一個group project都唔算太難做,不過要有好project mates係好重要
D notes 唔難.
