This is not an easy subject, obviously and a lot of work need to be done after school if you want to manage it. Make good use of the lecture and tutorial contents and you'll be alright.

Found this subject pretty difficult.

We did learn some mathematical techniques and how they can be applied to economic situations. I liked how we proved things from ECON1001, ECON1002 and ECOS2901, and I appreciated the synergy of ECOS2901 and this maths subject towards my understanding of economics. Don's lecturing is average; he does explain things well (especially the graphs he draws), but I've seen him mock students when they give incorrect or 'silly' answers - totally inappropriate in a learning environment. I was lucky that my tutor Khanh was able to go through the hard tutorial questions with us (for the others, not so much, or so I've heard). Even though Don explained his reasons, I still think we need solutions to tutorial questions, to see if we are getting the methods and the final answer right, especially since this is a maths subject. I remember when a whole group of us went to our tutor's consultation right before the mid-term because we panicked and didn't know what to do! There's also too much content, and I don't like how Don speeds through everything. The exam questions were just a very small sprinkle of topics we had learned, but it was predominantly implicit differentiation. I hear that Don has been doing this for many years now, and he does seem the adamant type (it's his way or the highway). In essence, this subject was pretty good, but MUCH more can be done.
