If you want to get A or A+, it is very hard. Helena will take all your scores in this course into consideration. This summer, you may fail to get an A if your score of final is less than 80, even your total score is high enough. You will also fail to get an A+ if your score of final is only a bit higher than 80 while your total score is even higher than 90, which means your score may be even higher than some students who get an A+. That is to say, Helena prefers the final. She tends to pay more attention to the final performance than the weight she told you in the class. This is very ridiculous.
If you only wish to get an A-/B+, you can take this course. The assignments are easy. Prepare the project and final well, you can get what you want.
An interesting and useful course. Helena is very helpful and will answer you many questions. The most important part is the group project and you need to find good teammates. However, competition is so fierce that getting an A is very hard.
Group project 20%
Lab progress 4%
Helena係一個好有心嘅lecturer，如果俾心機上堂啲嘢其實都唔難明，我係non cs major，都覺得幾容易上手，內容只係一啲基本嘅數學，最主要都係學logic，不過呢一科係拉curve，而且好多CS major嘅人，攞A range唔係太易，而且Midterm asg average都好高，project唔難做但係要俾多啲心機搵合適嘅data source，exam都幾簡單，應該有9成分，本來以為自己得A，點知最後有A+。

Helena is a very helpful tutor that always teaches us step by step to understand an algorithm. Highly recommended!
A good course to learn the very basics of data mining and analysis.
The group presentation is VERY important (50% of your grade)! Best way to get good grades is to pick smart and good English speaking teammates. The group presentation is not too hard if you leave yourself enough time and prepare well.
The Quiz is fairly easy and if you review all your notes, it should be a breeze.
All in all, a very good course with high averages.
Helena is a very helpful tutor and the course was quite well organised.
3 Assignments (You can get full marks for all if you are serious enough) + Midterm test (Easy but you should be careful) + 8-page mini project and presentations.
Groupmate is very important.
总而言之，这课就是workload轻，但是我自问认真上课也认真做每项东西了也没有gpmate freeride，给分还是so so，也许我大一还是太菜吧。
Helena is a very helpful teacher, she asked for many notes-taking in class, she will answer your question very soon and clearly
The course basically is NOT 'hea' at all, I guess the reason is Helena herself is a strict and serious teacher( tho she's nice actually), but the grading in total turned out to be good
Mine grade was fine, I m ok with it
I recommend you try it
同埋要諗埋係邊到搵D RAW DATA出黎
Ka-Chun Wong 教得幾好
成日講this is just a GE course
揀好teammates, 正常阿sir, 就會有好grade.
1. Finding raw data for further data research can be a problem.
2. Finding a good rather than a rubbish teammate is important.
Presentation is very important in this course (50%). So remember to chose good teammates. Teacher is very sensitive about free riders.
Teacher is tolerate and final quiz is easy.
Try to cooperate with teammates, do all jobs by one person is very tired since a lot of data needs to be analysed.
Average grade of this course is very high!
1份project [present + Paper]
比心同埋 work hard就有好grade...
Not heavy workload and not hard for the course content.
the quiz is not hard, similar to the lecture notes' content,
