Key tips: 'Further reading' is recommended (but not essential) - so only pay attention to the 'Prescribed' texts
If you are purchasing second hand textbooks, be sure to check the edition number.
If you are unsure which textbooks you will need, you can always wait until your first seminar as lecturers will usually talk about the textbook(s) needed for the unit.
